I used to feed the kids store bought bars for our snack when we’re on the go, but that got expensive, so now I’m trying to make my own portable snacks. I try to add protein to everything. Bookworm has been a big eater for years, but now PB & J Girl has an increased appetite, and I find that protein fills them up.
Here is what I made for make ahead snacks and meals this week:
Homemade Energy Bites (These were a huge hit with the kids and kept them full.)
Gluten Free/Dairy Free Brownies (These were so yummy! I use 1/2 c. coconut sugar instead of 1 cup and use carob instead of cocoa for mine and made a separate batch for the kids with cocoa.)
Peanut Butter Protein Bars (I tweaked this recipe quite a bit, so I’ll be sharing my version of it next week.)
Blueberry Baked Oatmeal (we made this last week and loved it, so it’s up again this week!)
And I browned ground beef for Chalupa Salad (from MyFreezEasy) later in the week.
I’d love to know if you do any make ahead prep on the weekends and what you make.
