Apples and peanut butter taste fantastic together. Throw on a little granola garnish, some mixed nuts or even dark chocolate flakes and you have a healthy snack in moments.

Apples are high in fiber and polyphenol antioxidants that improve gut health and reduce heart disease risk.

Peanut butter may have additional benefits for heart health. It has been shown to increase HDL (good) cholesterol and reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides.

That said, peanut butter is fairly high in calories. Although it generally hasn’t been linked to weight gain, it’s best consumed in moderation.

A medium apple with 1 tablespoon (15 grams) of natural peanut butter provides a nice balance of sweet flavor with crisp and creamy textures at under 200 calories.
