Are you a peanut butter lover like me? If you are, you need to try these healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip muffins. Fellow fit mom and owner of Blissful Eats, Nicole Culver, shared her recipe for these peanut butter chocolate chip muffins with me. Since I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, I was super excited to try these. They are delicious, made with healthy ingredients, and kid approved! Today I am sharing the recipe with you (with her permission of course!) and I hope you give them a try!
It’s that time of year for baking Holiday cookies and I am super excited to share this cookie recipe with you. These cookies are gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and free of refined sugar. But they are not free of taste! Plus they are made with ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen and you don’t even need a hand mixer to make them! Perfect for busy moms looking for a quick healthy snack for their kids (or themselves!). They are also a great gluten free cookie to bring to your next cookie exchange party.
It’s summer and we have a few vacations planned. We will be heading off on a family vacation this week and it is the first trip that we have taken since our 7 year old outgrew his milk allergy. This is a HUGE relief, but it also means that now we will be preparing less food at the hotel and eating at restaurants more often. The boys are excited about this, but I still want them to have some healthy snacks for the 3 hour road trip, the amusement parks, beach, zoo and parks. So here are a few of the travel snacks that I am taking along with us.
Let’s talk about snacks! Snacks are an important part a child’s diet. Most children need two to three healthy snacks each day in addition to three meals. It is especially important for kids to have snacks throughout the day because their bodies are growing. Children require a sufficient amount of calories each day to allow them to build more tissue, and healthy snacks provide extra energy and essential vitamins and nutrients to fuel their developing bodies.
As a mom with two young children, I am constantly on the go and it is important to always have snacks with me. I have made the mistake of going out without my arsenal of snacks in my bag, and I won’t do that I again! It was meltdown city until I stopped at a local grocery store and bought snacks for the kids. Not only is it important for me to have snacks in my bag at all times, but it is important that they are healthy and do not require refrigeration. I wanted to share my 10 “grab and go” snacks with you! Here they are:
This is a snack that the whole family will love!! Even my picky toddler gobbles this up and my 6 year old eats it by the spoonful! It’s the perfect after school snack and can be easily packed in your child’s lunch box along with fruits such as apple slices, strawberries, pears, bananas and more. This healthy and delicious dip can be made quickly and uses ingredients that are generally found in your refrigerator and pantry. That is one of the things I love about this recipe…I can make it when my kids are looking for a healthy snack without having to run out to the grocery store! I also love that it’s full of protein and probiotics!
