I eat two snacks a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Without my snacks my blood sugar would crash. I can’t live without my snacks. My car, purse, stroller, you name it there is probably a snack in there. I keep them everywhere in case of an emergency.
If you eat as many snacks as I do, you may need another idea! Yes, yes?! If I eat 2 snacks a day that means 14 snacks a week, 56 snacks a month, 672 snacks a year and quite possibly if you lived to 100 years old, you could have had 67,200 snacks by the time you died. Woah, thats a lot of snacks. Do you have that many options to peak your interest for 67,200 snacks?
What kind of snacks do you eat? I always try to balance my snacks with a carbohydrate and a protein, that way it doesn’t spike my blood sugar and it burns more efficiently.
One of my favorite snacks is apples and peanut butter. Who doesn’t love peanut butter. I love peanut butter everything. Peanut butter ice cream, peanut butter in my yogurt, peanut butter on my toast, peanut butter in my oatmeal and scoops of peanut butter.
I wanted to change up one of my old favorites and swap it for a super hyped up version! Want to know what’s in it? Too bad. No, seriously too bad. Alright fine, here we go. This apple cookie has peanut butter (obviously), mini chocolate chips and granola!! Sweet, creamy, crisp, tart, crunchy, heavenly apple cookies!
Enjoy this amazing snack, or breakfast, or dinner, or whatever!
