After school snack time can be a precious time to regroup, relax and bond with your kids. Days get so busy with new teachers, and new school buildings, we need time to cuddle on the couch & review the day, and plan for tomorrow.
These days with so many processed snack food that should only be for a special treat, I like to have homemade fresh ingredients snacks that I know exactly what is in them.
5 Homemade Afterschool snacks that are easy with whole simple ingredients. Perfect for your little ones who are just starting school to have a small treat while you go over the day. If your kids are a little older they will love to learn how to bake each one of these.
The snacks all keep well for a few days. The cupcakes are a little messy and will only last a day or two because of the frosting. But if you changed up the frosting to just regular vanilla they would keep longer.
(who am I fooling, if you make the s’more cupcakes and turn your back they will be gone. LOL)
