Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 8 3 3/4-inch round low-fat, whole-grain waffles
  • 1 Fuji apple, cored and sliced into 1/8-inch-thick pieces
  • 4 Tbs. all-fruit jam, such as raspberry or strawberry
  • 2 tsp. unsalted butter

Preparation

  1. Combine raisins, peanut butter and honey in small bowl; stir to blend. Divide among 4 waffles, and spread to cover. Top each with several apple slices (about 5).
  2. Spread 1 Tbs. jam on each of 4 remaining waffles; place jam side down on peanut butter-topped waffles.
  3. Heat 1 tsp. butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add waffle sandwiches and reduce heat to medium-low. Place another skillet over waffles, making sure it rests evenly on waffles. Cook waffle panini 1 1/2 minutes. Flip panini, add remaining 1 tsp. of butter to skillet, and slide panini around skillet to coat with melted butter. Replace top skillet and cook 1 more minute, or until lightly browned. Cut each panini in half and serve with any remaining apple slices.
