Celebrate the Victoria Day long weekend with a gourmet twist on a childhood favourite snack! Try out these Super Seedy Apple Rings.

If you’re looking for healthier, but still equally as tasty snack for the long weekend festivities, these apple rings are a great option. Upgrading to Granny Smith apples offer a touch of tartness, and any and all nut butters work with this recipe – so go wild!

Seeds are nutritional powerhouses packed with a wide range of health benefits, including:

  1. Heart Health: Many seeds, such as flaxseeds, chia seeds, and hemp seeds, are rich in heart-healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats. These fats help lower cholesterol levels, reduce inflammation, and support cardiovascular health, lowering the risk of heart disease.
  2. Digestive Health: Seeds are an excellent source of dietary fiber, which supports digestive health by promoting regular bowel movements, preventing constipation, and supporting a healthy gut microbiome. Fiber-rich seeds like chia seeds and flaxseeds also absorb water and form a gel-like substance in the digestive tract, which can help regulate blood sugar levels and promote feelings of fullness.
  3. Weight Management: Due to their high fiber content, seeds can help promote satiety and reduce appetite, making them a valuable addition to a weight loss or weight management diet. Including seeds in meals and snacks can help control hunger and cravings while providing essential nutrients and energy.

The ombre effect of the seeds make them a show stopper snack – but feel free to just mix, dip and go! It’s also a fun recipe to try with kids.


  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced horizontally into ¼-inch-thick rings
  • 4 tablespoons almond butter
  • pink Himalayan sea salt
  • chia seeds
  • sunflower seeds
  • hemp seeds
  • hulled pumpkin seeds
  • sesame seeds
  • sliced almonds


  1. Spread the almond butter evenly among the apple rings (you might need a little more or less depending on how many rings your apple yields). Sprinkle them with just a touch of pink Himalayan sea salt.
  2. Spoon a little line of each kind of seed onto a flat plate, nudging them close so that all together they are about the width of the apple. Dip the apple ring, almond butter side down, into the seeds and gently press to set the seeds in. Carefully turn it over and repeat with the rest of the apple rings—you might need to replenish some of the seeds as you go from slice to slice.
  3. If that process is too fussy (we admit it’s fussy), feel free to combine equal parts of all the seeds and simple sprinkle them on top.
