back to school snack roundup.

What was your favorite after-school snack as a kid?

Mine was a bowl of “dessert” cereal – Frosted Flakes, Corn Pops, Honey Nut Cheerios…what a treat it was to have a big bowl in the afternoon, if Mom would let me.

Well it’s that time of year again…kids headed back to school, life returning to a crazy and frenzied pace.

Looking for some fresh ideas for after-school snacks for the kiddos that are both nutritious and frugal?

Here’s a roundup of a few I’ve found to share.

Raspberry Oatmeal Scones from A Cozy Kitchen

Gluten Free Maple Cinnamon Popcorn Wafers by The Kitchn.

Cheese Straws from Smitten Kitchen.

Blood and Bones from Joy the Baker.  Perfect for Halloween!

Roasted Chickpeas by  Use leftover chickpeas for hummus!

Blueberry Mango Smoothie from Two Peas and their Pod.

Baked Carrot Oven Fries by 101 Cookbooks.

And a shameless plug…my Homemade Hummus and Pita Chips.

Happy Snacking!

  1. Those scones look awesome. The colour is just fantastic. However, it does pain me to call them scones as a British person… they aren’t scones 😀 Why do Americans call them scones? I don’t understand?! 😀

    • What do you call them? Do you have “scones” in Britain?
