A mom can never have too many snacks in her purse right?
Well, I found myself grabbing the quickest thing to eat which was not always the healthiest. I am always in the car or running around to the next activity. I needed something that I could prep in advance and eat in the car if needed. My two year old always wants to try what I am eating, so it had to be kid friendly too! So, I turned to my fit BFF Jill for some healthy and “on the go” snack ideas.
If you find yourself in the same situation as me then you will appreciate these three healthy snack ideas below:
- Protein Balls
*1 C Dry Oatmeal
*1/2 C Peanut Butter
*1/3 C Honey or Agave Nectar
*1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (or any flavor)
*1/8 C Ground Flax Seed (optional)
*1 TB chia seeds (optional)
*1 TSP Vanilla
*1/2 C Mini Chocolate Chips
Mix, roll, and refrigerate! It’s that simple.
- Rice Cakes with Peanut Butter
*Peanut Butter (Other options: PB2 or Almond Butter)
You can prep and put in a Ziploc bag to make these a super quick option.
- Banana Protein Muffins
Ya’ll, these are a family favorite! We literally make these once or sometimes twice a week.
* 2 C Power Cakes (Kodiak Brand)
* 1 C Milk
*1/2 C Brown Sugar (or substitute)
* 1/4 C Softened Butter
*2 Ripe Bananas, mashed
*1 TSP Cinnamon
*1 C Dark Chocolate Chips or Chopped Walnuts
Combine all ingredients and bake at 350′ for 14-18 minutes.
What is your favorite snack?
