Homemade Snack Mix Recipe
By Stephanie Kay
I am a snacker. There. I admitted it. I like to snack. Sweet. Salty. Doesn't matter. I am an equally opportunity snack eater.
Finding healthy snacks to eat is a bit of a challenge for me. I think you'll agree that there is only so much fruit a person can eat!
Snack mix is one of my favorite mid-afternoon breaks. Unfortunately, store bought mixes are loaded with calories and salt and everything I'm trying to avoid right now as I create a fitness lifestyle.
So I created my own snack mix recipe:
1 oz whole almonds (not roasted, salt free)
30 chocolate chips (or 15g)
1/3 cup dried cranberries (look on the baking aisle)
Measure ingredients. Combine.
I do NOT recommend you eat the whole bowl in one serving. All 3 items added together totals 360 calories. That is a whole lot of calories for a snack!!
I pour the snack mix into a Ziploc bag and grab a handful once or twice a day when I feel snackish.
What is your favorite healthy food snack?
