So often, the struggle with prepackaged snack foods is finding delicious ones that contain fewer ingredients (especially ones you can pronounce) instead of more. It’s one of the reasons I spend so much time working on simple snack recipes. As the new school year is upon us, I say double these recipes now and keep a big bag in the freezer so you have tons of snacks to munch on and to put into school lunch for months to come! The weekend is the perfect time to get your family in the kitchen together whipping up lots of healthy snacks for the lunch box. Your kids will be so excited to open their lunches every day of the week to find which of their homemade treasures has been included!
Wheat Germ Parmesan Crackers
These Wheat Germ and Parmesan Crackers are made with only 6 ingredients and they have a lot of visual appeal when you cut them into fun shapes with mini cookie cutters. They freeze beautifully, have tons of dietary fiber from the wheat germ, and zesty flavor and protein from the parmesan cheese.
