Oatmeal Raisin Apple Sandwiches + Oatmeal Raisin Parfait

My sweet, cinnamon-spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Brittle deserves a little more attention. I am in love with this chewy, raisin-flecked stuff. I’m also in love with these two snacks. I couldn’t pick a favorite even if I had to. So I suggest both! One batch of brittle makes enough to try both and still have some extra for munching.

Constructing a sandwich or crumbling in a parfait are just two of many possible creations you could make. Two incredible ones I might add. Both recipes also feature my easy raw apple butter. It’s sweet, but fresh-tasting too since the apples aren’t cooked. Feel free to eat it by the spoonful, I did 🙂

In case you wanted to see apple butter creation or snack construction in action, I made a video too:

So let’s get to snacktime…

  1. Slice one half of the apple into thin slices.
