DH and I really liked this. My diet has been blown since I started ZWT, but this is very figure friendly. This goes together so quickly and tastes so good, I anticipate that I will make this fairly often as a light lunch or late night snack. Made exactly as written. Thanks for posting WiGal!1Replies 1
I love apples & peanut butter together - I also enjoy pita bread, so this made a great late night snack for me tonight! I used Better n' peanut butter since I didn't have any chunky pb around. The orange juice gives the peanut sauce a little tang. I rolled everything inside of one soft warm pita bread instead of stuffing the pita - it didn't all fit but I just used a spoon to eat the rest :D I used golden raisins. Very good! Made for ZWT4.Reply
