If you are a busy mom with small children, you know how tough it can be to find quick snacks to feed to your children. In our house, I avoid the easy choice of feeding potato chips, pretzels, candy bars and other store bought food to our daughter by preparing homemade snacks.
Yes, we should all be feeding our children healthy snacks like fresh fruits and vegetables, but there is nothing wrong with letting them snack on crackers, cereal mixes and peanut butter fried tortillas. I believe snacks such as these, should be given in moderation.
These 4 recipes have always been a favorite here in our house. You can easily prepare any of these recipes in just a few minutes.
Peanut Butter Banana Tortilla
1 flour tortilla
2-3 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 banana, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons butter
Place butter in a frying pan and melt over low heat. Spread 2-3 tablespoons of peanut butter on one side of a tortilla, layer sliced banana on top. Fold tortilla in half, place in fry pan and lightly fry on each side for 1 minute or until lightly browned. Remove. Let cool and slice into wedges.
Cereal Snack Mix
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
12 oz. butterscotch chips
1 teaspoon butter
1 box of Chex cereal
2 cups confectioner’s sugar
Place cereal in a large mixing bowl. Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips with butter in a large saucepan, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; pour mixture over cereal and mix well. Pour confectioner’s sugar over cereal. Cover bowl and shake until all ingredients are mixed.
Baked Mozzarella Bites
Cut Mozzarella cheese to fit between 2 crackers and place on a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and put crackers with cheese in them into the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
Strawberry Cracker Sandwiches
1 teaspoon strawberry cream cheese
2 Ritz Crackers
1 teaspoon strawberry preserves
Spread cream cheese and strawberry preserves onto your cracker. Top with an additional cracker.
Easy treats for just about anytime! Enjoy y’all!
In His Grace.
