It’s easy to reach for a pre-made snack. I know because I reach for them all of the time. And while I love them, I love the taste of a good, homemade snack better. And this Apple Walnut Snack Cake is no exception! It’s a simple recipe that EVERYONE in your house will soon claim as their favorite!
A little over a year ago I posted a recipe for breakfast cookies. I liked that recipe so much, I decided to re-create the recipe with a seasonal twist, by adding pumpkin to it. And I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with how these Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies turned out!
‘Tis the season for pumpkins, but I’m making banana bread. Not because I don’t love pumpkins, but because I had bananas and well, you know the saying, “if you’ve got brown bananas, you must make banana bread.” What? That’s not a saying? Oh well, it is in my world. And I love bananas and banana bread as well as oats and chocolate chips – so yeah, here comes Chocolate Oat Banana Bread!

You know what tastes good? Pistachios inside pancakes! That’s right! If you’re looking for a way to “up” your pancake game, it’s time you added some pistachios to your pancake batter! Don’t know how to do that? Well, that’s why I’m here! I jammed plenty of pistachio goodness into these Pistachio Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes!
Do you ever get tired of the same old snack mix that gets set out at parties? I know I do. Give me something with a balance of salty and sweet, please. Is That kind of snack is hard to come by. Or is it? This Holiday Snack Mix might save your next party!
When life is out of control, I bake. If you follow along here on my blog, you know this about me. Baking is my meditation. So when life ordered up devastation, I turned to my oven. My old reliable friend whispered, “I know what you need, comfort in the form of baked goods.” Yes, oven, I sure did. And nothing was more comforting than warm, Applesauce Cranberry Muffins.
Does that exclamation sound familiar? It sure does to me. When I pick up my little sous chef from school, I’m always met with those two words. Luckily, we both love a delicious, nourishing snack. And the effort in making that nourishing snack is worth it, because snacking can be a great way for your kids to get more nutrition while keeping them happy and satisfied until their next meal. Today I’ve partnered with Simple Mills for this post all about making snack time meaningful and I’m sharing a recipe for my Avocado Watermelon Cracker Snackers.
