I love Fruity Pebbles. There I said it. I am not kidding. When my sister came to visit with her boys last year she was in my pantry and said “it was so nice of you to buy Fruity Pebbles for the kids for breakfast.” Umm yeah, okay, I went along with it 😉
It all stems from when I was a kid. You couldn’t get Fruity Pebbles in Canada (maybe you still can’t? I don’t know!). We would do our twice a year shopping trips over the border and my ‘treat’ was a box of Fruity Pebbles. I would ration that cereal like it was gold.
Although I love eating them with almond milk for my breakfast, I also like preparing snacks with them. So recently when I received some easy Pebbles Cereal snack recipes in my inbox … I was all over it (and Post kindly sent me a sample of them to make this recipe and get my breakfast fix on). I made the Grilled Cocoa Pebbles Banana S’mores the other day. Today’s post is a little bit simpler and something the kids could almost do by themselves after a parent or older sibling has cored and cut the apple. These would be great for a kid’s lunch box this fall or for an after school snack.
Fruity Pebbles Apple and Peanut Butter Stackers
Makes 4 servings. One apple stacker per serving.
Recipe Note: You can also do this with Cocoa Pebbles & Almond Butter!!
2 apples (I used Fuji apples because honestly it’s the only kind I buy, but a tart apple would work well with sweeter cereal)
4 Tablespoons low-fat peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
8 teaspoons Fruity Pebbles cereal
2 teaspoons unsweetened shredded coconut
Core apples. Cut each apple crosswise into four, 1/2 inch slices. Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter over 4 of the slices; sprinkle each with 2 teaspoons of cereal and 1/2 teaspoon of coconut. Top with remaining apple slices.
