About This Triple-Layered Breakfast Apple Sandwich Recipe
Breakfast, especially in the western world, has typically been dominated by sweet food, often high sugar content cereals, pancakes and waffles drowned in syrup, and heavily processed fried meat. But what if you could turn regular breakfast items into healthy, nutritious, absolutely delicious dishes?
This triple-layered breakfast apple sandwich recipe is incredibly easy and quick to put together, providing you with a filling breakfast that is raw, fresh, and keto-friendly — the epitome of clean eating.
Made using a handful of healthy ingredients, with apple and nut butter as the two main components, this is a very customizable and delicious recipe.
Apples are known to deliver a wealth of health benefits, including improved gut health and reduced risk of stroke, high blood pressure, heart disease, and obesity. Unsurprisingly, it makes for a smart breakfast.
The nut butter adds a healthy source of fat and protein to provide your body with slow-releasing energy until your next meal. It helps keep cravings and the temptation to snack at bay!
What You Need for This Triple-Layered Breakfast Apple Sandwich Recipe
- Apples: Gala apples or pink lady apples work best in this recipe as they offer a lot of crunch, sweetness, and juiciness. Of course, you can use any apple you like. The only apples we perhaps wouldn’t recommend are granny smith or Bramley apples.
- Cashew butter: Made from roasted cashew nuts, this nut butter has a similar consistency to thick peanut butter and adds a wonderful depth of flavor to the recipe.
- Honey: Nature’s nectar. Honey is a wonderful natural sweetener and is significantly less harmful to our health than processed sugar. Due to its viscous nature, it also acts like edible glue and helps bind the other ingredients together.
- Chia seeds: These edible seeds from the Salvia Hispanica plant, a member of the mint family native to central and southern Mexico, are known to help lower cholesterol.
- Dried cranberries: Cranberries are a fantastic source of vitamin C that’ll help energize you throughout the day. They also add an interesting balance of sweetness with a touch of sharp tang to the recipe.
- Raw cashew nuts: This recipe needs cashew nuts that haven’t been roasted or salted as the salt would throw off the flavors and wouldn’t be very pleasing to the palate.
- Cashew nut butter: You can use any nut butter — almond, hazelnut, or peanut butter would work fantastically. I’d recommend substituting the cashew nuts for the same nuts used in your chosen nut butter.
- Honey: To make a vegan version of this recipe, you can simply replace the honey with agave or maple syrup.
- Dried cranberries: If you aren’t keen on cranberries, you can use any dried fruits instead, such as raisins, sultanas, currants, or dried apricots.
Can I Make This Ahead Of Time?
Absolutely. You can make this the night before, wrap them tightly in cling film or a beeswax wrap to prevent the nut butter and honey from leaking, and store them in the refrigerator until the morning.
Can I Make This Vegan?
Yes! Substitute the honey for a vegan alternative such as agave or maple syrup!
Where Can I Find The Specialist Ingredients?
Most supermarkets will have a range of nut butter, or you can place an order on online stores such as Amazon.

Make sure you rinse your apples before preparing the recipe, even if they’re organic, to remove any organic matter and particulates.
