I recently wrote a post with dinner recipes you need to try, so now I’m going to share sweet and healthy snack recipes that you need to try too. Now that I’m nursing a new baby, I’ve been browsing Pinterest a lot on my tablet to pass the time. Honestly I don’t know how I managed without a tablet when I nursed my boys. I think they should hand them out at the hospital when you have a baby as an essential item for nursing moms. And since nursing makes me hungry, I’ve been trying out several of the snacks that I’ve discovered on Pinterest. These are some of my favourite finds.
Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bites by And They Cooked Happily Ever After
These little morsels of nutritious quinoa and sweet apples make a perfect balanced snack that’s high in protein and fiber, and low in sugar. Plus, they’re gluten-free. The kids liked them, and they’re great for packing in lunches.
Blueberry Yogurt Cookies by La Fuji Mama
I made these to bring to an afternoon playdate and they were gobbled up very quickly. They’re very nice with cream cheese frosting, but I like them on their own too. I baked the lemon zest right into the cookies rather than in the frosting.These are soft cookies, like muffin tops. The kids adored these things!
Primal Fudge by Practical Paleo
Oh wow, this fudge was so delicious! I still have some in my freezer to sneak a little whenever I have a chocolate craving. Best of all, they’re made with healthy and natural ingredients. They’re not that sweet so the boys didn’t like them, but if you like a really dark chocolate then I’m sure you’ll like these too.
Coconut Crack Bars by Chocolate Covered Katie
I topped these addictive no-bake coconut bars with some of the chocolate from the above Primal Fudge. The result was too good for words. You need to try this!
