When 3pm rolls around, don’t reach for your candy stash. 

These three easy homemade snacks are just as tasty – and are packed with healthful protein, too.

Apple Slices with Peanut Butter and Lärabar™ Renola™

Take the classic combo of apples and peanut butter and take it up a notch with Larabar™ Renola™, a delicious mix of fruits, nuts and seeds. Just slice up your apple, spread on some PB and sprinkle with Renola™ for a sweet, crunchy, gluten-free treat.


DIY Protein Bars

Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper and set aside. On your stovetop over medium heat, stir together 1/3 cup of honey and 1/2 cup of almond butter until smooth. Add in 1/4 cup of ground flax and 3 cups of Cheerios™ Protein cereal. Once it’s nicely mixed, transfer it to the pan and pack it down. Freeze for 15 minutes or so, then cut into squares. Voila! Homemade protein bars.


Hummus with Falafel Chips

Just pick up some Food Should Taste Good™ Multigrain tortilla chips and dip ‘em in your favorite hummus for a yummy, Middle Eastern-inspired snack.


Want to give your hummus an extra flavor bump? Drizzle with a little olive oil and top with fresh herbs – try basil, rosemary, thyme, cilantro, dill, marjoram…the options are endless!
