Lunchbox Treat: Apple Power Pockets

Recipe from Little Bites, get it here

I knew we had fallen into a rut when my kiddo got really mad at his lunch and it affected the rest of his school day. That's a surefire way of knowing that I had sent so many sandwiches recently that when he didn't get a sandwich, he was upset. We all go into autopilot sometimes and start sending the same things every day, especially when it starts getting close to the holidays. This sandwich twist changed things up a little and added some extra nutrition to the mix.​


  • Pita halves or mini pitas
  • Nut butter (I used Sun Butter)
  • Apple butter or pumpkin butter
  • Sliced apples
