{recipe} Attack of the Snack (Duty)

Peanut Butter Granola Bites

Snack week duties strike again!

Back in November, I shared my first ever snack week plan, complete with Cinnamon Granola Bars, Mini Peanut Butter Sandwiches on Oatmeal Flax Crackers, Zucchini Muffins and more. I even came up with a nut-free version.

It was recently my turn to take care of snack week again. In our school, that means bringing in enough snacks for 15 kids every day of the week. Not one for repeats, I made a whole new snack plan. Yea, I know that 4-year-old like repeats, but isn’t this all about me? Okay, seriously though, I figure that since half of the kids will be disappointed with my snacks anyway — let’s be real: they’re just hoping for cheddar bunnies — I might as well try some new things and encourage them to do the same.

Trying to keep snack week fresh definitely got stressful mid-way through, but that’s because I take this stuff way too seriously. You don’t have to since I’m handing the plan over to you. Now you’re golden, with two snack week plans in your back pocket. Done and DONE!

So check them out. The new snack week plan includes recipes for Peanut Butter Granola Bites (pictured above; for kids 12+ mos), Homemade Fruit Leather (pictured after the jump; for kids 12+ mos), Yogurt Parfaits (can be adapted for kids 6+ mos), plus the secret to getting every kid to eat every bite of fruit (hint below), and MORE.

    I love your recipes! Have you thought of producing a book? If not I am a graphic designer and I would love to produce the art/layout/graphics for you. I look for books all the time and still love being able to hold pages in my hand. I would love to help if you were interested.
