Looking for a GREAT snack that is not only quick to make, quick to grab and not too bad for you!???? I have talked about making this for.ever. It just took doing it once to become addicted. We all enjoy grabbing this for a snack! The best part it that you can make it ALL your own! So, this really isn’t a “recipe” per say ~ more of a “method” lets say. Add what you want!! Take out what you don’t!!!
Please let us know your combinations!!! Maybe it will inspire us! THANKS!
nuts (whole almonds, mixed nuts, cashews, etc.)
peanuts (dry roasted, lightly salted, cocktail, etc.)
dried fruit (raisins, craisins, mixed dried fruit, apricots ~ cut up, etc.)
M & M’s (of course…….or chocolote chips, dark chocolate, peanut butter chips, vanilla chips, etc. will work too!!!)
yogurt covered raisins (Aldi…..WHY have you not had these for weeks?!?!?!? OH, this past week they had them!! So, below is another batch I made. ↓)
Mix as much or as little of the ingredients you like. Store in a covered container and ENJOY!!!!
Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins
I have been telling a few people about this recipe, TIME to share it!!! We have these with “breakfast for dinner” or for breakfast…..or for snack…….. I enjoy knowing that there is wheat flour in it……sneaking some goodness into my kids without them knowing it! I hope you too make these and enjoy! Grab the recipe here at Kats’ Kitchen. (PLEASE enjoy her picture, mine really wasn’t so very good, sorry……)
My tips for the muffins!!!
* I use 4 TB. oil and about 4 TB. applesauce.
* I find that this recipe yields more then 12, closer to 16 muffins I would say.
* I like to brush the muffins with the butter instead of dipping.
OH, another thing!!! PLEASE, if you are trying to figure out the whole snacking- healthy-fill-you-up-sorta-thing……THEN please, check this recipe out from Lisa at Cooking Up a Sale. My kids and I enjoyed this yesterday as a snack. I served it with apples, though thought that graham crackers would be a fabulous dipper as well!!! Though, I was encouraging my kids to eat their fruit AND BOY DID THEY!!!
Light (er) Apple Dip
The taste is much like Peanut Butter Gram-wiches, so if you liked the taste of those, you will enjoy the dip as well.
She has GREAT tips on her post, please take the time to check it out. ESPECIALLY the tip about “Grab and Go Apple Slices! I ended up using plain Greek yogurt and added a touch of vanilla extract.
