My kids love to snack on nuts-doesn't matter what kind they just love them. We always have a jar of peanuts or a bag of walnuts in the refrigerator. Or we have boxes of granola bars in the pantry. When it comes to making school lunches and snacks I have to be so careful not to make or buy anything with nuts.
I think it makes me nut!! anyway....
These are just a few ideas I have made at home for my kids and yet they may not be organic or so called 100% health they are a happy balance, the kids get what they want and so do I.
This is an Apple Cranberry Oat bar. I used
apple sauce and diced apples with dried cranberries. Full of fiber and antioxidants plus it still tastes great.
helps to spruce up any apple.
1 can sweetened condense milk
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
bring all except vanilla to a low boil for 2-4 min
remove from heat and vanilla allow to cool.
You can never go wrong with chocolate chip cookies.
Replace 1/2 cup all purpose flour with 1/2 whole
wheat flour if you'd like.
I thought these would be great for when the
neighborhood kids come over. Whole wheat
pretzel sticks dipped in a little chocolate and
sprinkles. Fun and tasty :)
