that planning snacks could be so hard? Let me clarify. Who knew that
planning DIFFERENT snacks EVERY DAY could be so hard? If you are tired of giving your kids the
typical banana, pretzels and granola bars, then today's round-up is for
you. We're taking typical ingredients
that you would have in your kitchen and mixing them up to give you and your kids
a variety of #onfleek treats. Happy
Sweet Potato Pancakes: Take
1/2 cup of smashed sweet potato and 2 eggs. Whisk together and then cook in oil over medium heat in a frying pan
just as you would a regular pancake, for about 3-5 minutes. You can eat plain or jazz them up with things
like maple syrup, cinnamon, powdered sugar, or sunflower seed butter.
Oatmeal Energy Bites: If
you are looking for a snack that's easy to take on the go, doesn't require any
baking and is kid approved, then look no further than these delicious Oatmeal Energy Bites. They are perfect for after-school pickup or an easy bite for right
before the weekend baseball game.
Pizza Rolls: What's
better than pizza? Pizza that you can
make in less than 20 minutes! These are
so simple to make and can easily be modified. Add in some spinach or other healthy toppings
to sneak in some added nutrition.
Banana Roll-Ups: This is a delicious, fun way to serve bananas to the family. It's a warm, sweet treat that is easy to make in a few quick steps. Spread a mixture of cream cheese, honey and cinnamon onto a tortilla. Then roll in a banana and grill until all sides are golden.
Frozen Yogurt Blueberries: Perfect for a hot day, frozen yogurt blueberries are the ideal poolside snack. Just use a toothpick to dip the blueberries in yogurt. Spread them on a baking sheet (cover the sheet in parchment paper so they don't stick) and freeze. When frozen, just store them in a freezer safe bag and enjoy!
Baked Mango: We've
all heard of baked apples. This is the
more tropical version! You can either
cut your own mango or buy pre-cut chunks in the frozen section of your
supermarket (a much easier option). Toss
the chunks in cinnamon and vanilla extract. Then layer them in a baking dish that's been sprayed with non-stick
cooking spray. Bake at 400F for 8
minutes and you're done!
Fruit Pops: Any combination of fruits and vegetables can be turned into a popsicle. Add the fruits and veggies that you have in your fridge. You can also add in yogurt and a splash of juice for sweetness. Then pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours.
