When the late afternoon munchies strike, strike back with a smart snack made with real ingredients.
Sure, you could hit up the vending machine and have a candy bar instead, but what’s REALLY in those and will one REALLY keep you full until dinner? These brilliant (and quick!) snacks focus on quality ingredients and bonus, you can make them ahead of time for whenever the hangries strike!
Lärabar™ Fruit Skewers
This one’s easy. Grab a Cashew Cookie Lärabar and cut it into cubes. Then stick them on some toothpicks—or skewers, if you’re feeling fancy—with strawberries and blackberries. It’s like PBJ on a stick. SO. GOOD.
Sriracha Lime Roasted Edamame
Preheat your oven to 400 F. While it’s heating up, mix together a bag of Cascadian Farm™ frozen edamame with lime juice and sriracha. Sprinkle with salt to taste and roast in the oven for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally. This crispy, spicy, tangy snack can’t be beat!
Chocolate Coconut Bark with Pistachios
This stuff is addictive. Start by preheating your oven to 300 degrees F and roast your pistachios for about 10 minutes. Add some unsweetened flaked coconut and roast for another 3.
Meanwhile, chop up 8 oz of semisweet chocolate and melt it in a double boiler (or in the microwave, if you’re in a pinch).
Pour the melted chocolate onto parchment paper. Sprinkle with the roasted nuts and some sea salt. Freeze for 15-20 minutes, then break into pieces and devour.
