½ cup gorp
¼ cup peanut butter, almond butter or soy nut butter
2 large tart apples, such as Granny Smith or Pink Lady
Place the gorp in a food processor and pulse for 3-5 seconds, or until lightly chopped. Transfer to a small bowl and mix in the peanut butter. Set aside.
To make the apple bowls, carefully slice each apple in half down the center. Use a melon baller to hollow out each of the 4 apple halves, leaving about ½ inch of apple flesh to form the bowls. Brush the apples with lemon juice to prevent browning.
Spoon a quarter of the peanut butter mixture into each apple half. Serve immediately or wrap to pack for lunch. To wrap, press 2 of the apple halves together, then wrap in plastic.
