Ideas for making yummy "sweet" snacks?

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I have made homemade potato chips. I have made sweet potato fries. I like raw cauliflower with light dip...I love them all, but I'm starting to get "bored" with the same things. I'd love some and easy to make. The only things I've had are some light oatmeal raisin cookies. Again, I'd like something different. I need to start getting some variety into my "snack" plan. I like to snack early evening, and cut off food after 7:30 pm.

Simple and easy, because I'm so busy I hardly have time to plan my meals, but I'm doing it. Any favorites you can share?

    I like frozen bananas. Much more satisfying texture than fresh bananas.

    I tend to reach for Greek Yogurt, that satisfies my sweet need and is good for me. I never tire of it either!
Tried a new to me one yesterday . . . Greek Yogurt in coconut flavour, oh yummy!

    If you like Nutella... these are AMAZING. I left off the hazelnuts and they were great!

    Hungry Girl has many low calorie recipes and she has them on-line so no cost for you. I hope you find something that suits you.

    How about a sliced apple sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar? Or apple dipped in the 5 calorie jello powder? I like clementine oranges and all kinds of other fruits, and veggies they make great snacks. Also look at some recipes on spark that are low calorie and quick and easy. Heres a good one for when you want something sweet. rice crispie treats, they are sweet and cut small they wont destroy your calorie count!

    There is a GREAT peanut butter cookie recipe on here that I got from someone else. It is SOOOOO easy and pretty healthy as well. There are only 3 ingredients AND they are easy to make.

You start with one cup of peanut butter, add one egg, and add sugar (original recipe said one cup - to make them healthier, I have used as little as a quarter of a cup but while half a cup is just about perfect, 1/4 cup leaves the cookies really crumbliy but still tasty - but even with the whole cup, they are not bad for you). Bake in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 7-12 minutes depending on size (smaller take less time) I prefer to make cookies small to make them last longer and to reduce the cals further.

    Cool Whip on rice cakes with a couple sliced strawberries or whatever kind of fresh fruit you have.
