Satisfying snacks....

As our families transition back to school, or prepare for fall activities and commitments, food comes to my mind. And with the end of summer around the corner, I'm beginning to get an itch for baking....and eating in general!

In just 1-2 weeks my kitchen will be finished and I can starting measuring and mixing to my heart's content. Until then, there are plenty of easy recipes that don't involve any mixing and measuring.

With cooler weather coming, it's beneficial to have some good snacks on hand to feed hungry mouths...whether that's kids, spouses or friends and family members!

Here are a few ideas:
Mix peanuts, almonds, raisins and m&ms for a quick and protein-filled snack.

Use up left over bananas and instead of making banana bread, mix up your favorite recipe and put it in muffin tins instead of a loaf pan. A quick muffin snack on the go.

Make up a few pieces of celery with peanut butter and raisins - kids love this and it is healthy!

Mix together pretzels, white Cheez-its, peanuts and m&ms. A tasty, salty treat for afternoon cravings.

Mix mini Oreos and mini Nutterbutters together for a chocolate peanut butter combination.

Do you have a favorite, easy snack for when you are on the go? Please share!
