A nutritious after school snack, and also great for anyone as a tasty, healthy snack. I think this is from the California Raisin Board.
- 3⁄4 cup california raisins
- 1⁄2 cup apple juice
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- Measure raisins and apple juice into small saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until raisins have absorbed all of the juice.
- Stir in honey and cinnamon; cool slightly. Stir in peanut butter.
- Spread onto graham crackers, bread, mini-bagels apple slices or celery sticks.
- Variations: Raisin Peanut Butter Griddlers -- Smear Peanut Butter Spread on whole wheat bread, top with banana slices and grill in a skillet.
- Raisin Peanut Butter Tortilla Roll-Ups: Wrap California Raisin Peanut Butter Spread and banana slices in a who;e wheat tortilla and serve in pinwheel slices.
- Note: Parents do the prep work, and let the kids assemble the sandwiches or wraps.
This was excellent! I halved it because I only had a little bit of apple juice but now I'm wishing I'd had more! This made a tasty breakfast this morning, spread on flour tortillas. Next time, I think I'll try it on toast or an English muffin. Thanks for the recipe! - Jan 25, 2009. Update: I made this again (a full recipe this time!) and used part crunchy part creamy p.b. - still awesome! :) Thanks again!
This is a great healthy snack. I think it would be great for a fast on the go lunch when spread on high fiber crackers such as Wasa Brod or Rye Krisp.
