Vegetable Snack Jars with Gold Dip

  • Makes 4 jars
  • Easy

The perfect after-school snack from The Little Green Kitchen cookbook - and, so simple you can get the kids to make them.

Vegetable Snack Jars with Gold Dip

Fruit and vegetable sticks with a dollop of peanut butter is a classic healthy snack and on lazy days we often just place a jar of peanut butter with a few carrots or apple slices on the table. This is a slightly upgraded version with a flavoured peanut butter dip that is served in a jar and then topped up with crunchy fruit and vegetables. Because it is so simple, you can let your kids make

this on their own. Put a lid on the jar and they become a handy snack on the go.
