I am here to divulge to you that I am a snacker. To be honest, when I’m on my own, snacks substitute meals. I’ve heard several smaller meals are better for your digestion than three large ones. I must have skewed this a bit in my brain to mean snack all day, my friend. I don’t know that nachos, crackers or scones were what was referenced as examples of small meals. But interpretation is in the eye (or stomach) of the beholder right?
Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook. I just won’t put the effort in if I’m the only one partaking in the meal. So I’ve worked on finding some half decent healthy snacks to counter the cookies and chocolate.
So here is my take on a crunchy cereal mix…it’s not a health food, but it has some whole grains and honey. It’s easy to make and very easy to eat.
4 cups Golden Grahams
1/2 bag honey wheat pretzels, broken in half
1 cup cocktail peanuts
1/8 cup olive oil
1/2 cup honey
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Place oil and honey in microwave safe cup. Microwave for 20 seconds, then stir. Add to dry ingredients and toss to coat. Spread onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-13 minutes, stirring halfway through. Let cool.
Now you can add things like mixed nuts or coconut or whatever sounds good to you.
Then munch away. I think it gives me inspiration. I know it makes me happy.
