Here at MOMables, we are always looking for ways to get our kids more involved. Whether it is packing their lunches you receive from your weekly meal plan or having play time in the back yard, MOMables is here to help!

Baking with the apples we’ve picked is an even more enjoyable experience. What better way to incorporate them into a recipe than with this simple fruit- and cinnamon-filled treat.

This recipe can easily be made dairy-free by using a non-dairy butter substitute. I make mine with a lactose-free coconut spread, adding an extra element of deliciousness.

Because it doesn’t have to be eaten warm, it’s delicious inside the lunch box at room temperature.
