I’ve always liked spreading peanut butter on apples, but sometimes I need more calories from carbohydrates. And I’ve always liked peanut butter on pita bread, but that can be kind of bland sometimes.

So I combined the two into a tasty treat! I call it the Peanut Butter Apple Pita.


  • Pita bread
  • Apple
  • Natural peanut butter

Preparation instructions:

Have your every own peanut butter apple pita in four easy steps.

1. Split open the pita.

What I do is first slice it in half with a butter knife. Then toast it for a short time, until it separates. Then pull it apart so you have two “pockets.”

It’s really hard to “open” the pita when it’s soft, but after a little toasting, it loosens up. That’s why I do the toasting.

2. Spread peanut butter.

Use the butter knife to spread natural peanut butter inside the two pockets. Creamy is easier to spread.

3. Add apple slices.

Peel your apple and cut into thin slices.

Lay the thin apple slices on top of the peanut butter.

(You can even sprinkle just a light coat of cinnamon on top of the apple slices, if desired.)

4. Eat.

Now you can eat your pita pockets!

  2. @Casey

    Any type of natural peanut butter. They all taste a little different so choose the one you like. Or make your own.

    Typically I use Teddie, Smuckers, and Archer Farms brands.
