Apple-Peanut Butter Delight: Gestational Diabetes-Friendly Snack

Hello, my fabulous readers! Today, I'm going to share a snack that was my sweet and savory savior during my gestational diabetes journey. It's a snack that's simple, satisfying, and absolutely delicious.

Let's bite into the Apple and Peanut Butter! This snack is a delightful combination of crisp apple slices and creamy peanut butter. It's a sweet and savory snack that's perfect for a mid-morning pick-me-up or an afternoon delight.

When I was pregnant, I often found myself craving something sweet, but with my gestational diabetes, I had to be careful about my food choices. That's when I discovered the magic of the Apple and Peanut Butter. It was like a sweet and savory treat, and the best part? It was completely guilt-free! The balance of natural sugars from the apple and protein and healthy fats from the peanut butter kept my blood sugar levels stable, while the combination of sweet and savory satisfied my cravings. It was the perfect solution to my sweet tooth!

This recipe was my saving grace when I was pregnant and dealing with gestational diabetes. It's the perfect snack for when you're craving something sweet but still want to keep things healthy. The crunchy, juicy apple slices paired with the creamy, rich peanut butter is a combination that never fails to satisfy

  • 1 Medium-sized apple
  • 2 tablespoons natural, unsweetened peanut butter
  1. Slice the apple into thin, bite-sized pieces

  2. Spread the peanut butter onto the apple slices

  3. That's it! You're ready to enjoy your sweet and savory snack


If you have leftover apple slices with peanut butter, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The apple slices may brown slightly, but they will still be safe to eat. To prevent browning, you can squeeze a little lemon juice on the apple slices before adding the peanut butter. Enjoy the snack cold or at room temperature.
