I love to make healthy snacks for my girls after we pick up my oldest daughter Allie from school. We are all hungry and need a little something to hold us over until dinner. These are my five favorite snacks to give them (and eat myself!)
1. Trail Mix
I love to make my own trail mix and add different things to it. Our favorite variety is unsalted peanuts, unsalted almonds, and dried cranberries. The nuts have protein to keep us full, and the cranberries give a little tang and hint of sweetness. LOVE THIS.
2. Frozen Blueberries
This is anther super simple snack to make, just dip some blueberries in yogurt, lay out on some parchment paper, freeze, and voila! A sweet frozen treat!
Larabars are so awesome for on-the-go, or when I don’t have time to make a snack. Most of the flavors only have two or three ingredients, and they are so yummy! They contain nuts and fruit, so they have that salty sweet thing going on.
Cashew Cookie and Apple Pie are my favorite flavors.
4. Lettuce Wraps
I like to take a little bit of turkey and cheese and roll them up in some lettuce.
Secure with a toothpick, and there you go! Delish and guilt-free.
5. Peanut Butter Toast
I like to grab some whole-grain bread, spread a little peanut butter, drizzle some honey on top, and sprinkle with some cinnamon. Delicious, and perfect for when I crave something sweet.
