Your kids can only eat so many pretzels. 😊 Here are 5 snacks, easy enough for kids to make, that will give them energy to finish their homework and won’t leave them bouncing off the wall once it’s done.  

Brown Paper Popcorn

Microwave 1/3 cup popcorn in a brown paper bag (folding down the corners of the bag so it doesn’t open) for about 2.5 minutes. When popping slows down, remove. Be sure to monitor so nothing burns.

Semi-Homemade Pop Tarts

Unroll a can of crescent rolls, keeping them as rectangles. Pinch the seems closed. Spoon about 1 tablespoon jam in the center of rectangle, leaving about 1/4 inch empty along the edges. Place another rectangle on top and crimp edges with a fork. Bake at 425 for about 8-10 minutes.

Fruit Dip

Mix Ÿ cup greek yogurt,  Ÿ cup almond butter,  1 tbsp honey,  Ÿ tsp cinnamon, Ÿ tsp vanilla in a small bowl.  Dip strawberries and apples!

Mug Cake

Mix 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 3 tbsp flour, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1 tbsp sugar, 3 tsp coconut or vegetable oil, 3 tbsp milk, 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract and 1 tbsp kid-friendly protein powder in a bowl. Pour into a mug and microwave for 1-1.5 minutes.
