I have been trying to make healthier snacks for my kids for about six years.
Ive spent so much time and money trying to figure out what snacks my kids would like, but its never really been an easy task.
In a few years Ive tried a bunch of different types of snacks and decided on the one that had the highest quality and was most suitable for my little one.
Since then Ive been trying out different flavors, but none of them have ever quite made the grade for me.
So this is the result.
Its a healthy package.
Ingredients: (all recipes will be updated) 4 small pieces of salted butter (about 3 oz) 1 tbsp peanut butter (any type) 1 tsp cocoa powder 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 cup whole milk, room temperature 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 cup whole wheat flour 1 cup of fresh chopped chives 2 tbsp nutritional yeast 1/3 cup almond milk 1 tbsp honey To make the salted buttermilk and peanut butter: In large bowl combine butter and peanut or cocoa powder, and cinnamon and mix until smooth.
Add milk and vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.
Stir in the flour, milk, and vanilla.
Use a spatula to make a well in the middle.
Fill the dough ball with the mixture and pipe the mixture into the bottom of a greased, parchment-lined baking dish.
Place salted peanut butter and chives in a large bowl and mix well.
Once combined, add the milk, vanilla extract, and yeast and mix again.
Cover with the lid and leave in a warm place for about 5 minutes.
Transfer to the refrigerator and let rise in the refrigerator for about an hour.
To prepare the buttermils: Cut the butternut squash into small chunks.
Whip together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
Divide the mixture among the prepared baking dishes.
Spread evenly over the baked goods.
Bake at 350º for 30-40 minutes.
To make the almond milk: Place the almonds in a medium saucepan.
Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly, until the almonds have cooked through.
Remove from the heat, stir in the nutritional yeast and stir.
Let stand for about 15 minutes, or until soft and smooth.
