    I’ve been having such a problem with snacks lately this came at exactly the right time. I’m going to make the granola bars today!

    @janel, I love those granola bars! Let me know how they turn out for you.

    Do you have any snack questions I can answer? Maybe I can help with some other ideas.

    Hi Amy,

    This post is of great interest to me, as I’m a HUGE snacker and always have a few on hand (errands and trips – always!). And it’s essential to have snacks at all times with kids. I try to not buy packaged snacks (bars and the like), as it’s wasteful and often has cane-sugar (and other stuff I don’t like), so thank you for these great recipes. The chewy granola bars are awesome, and I love it when I see carob, as I don’t give my son (3 years) chocolate (and I happen to really like carob) so this is great. :-)

    Have a beautiful weekend!

    @amber, I love carob, too. It’s been my stand-in for chocolate for the last 8 years. Just recently refined sugar-free chocolate came on the market but oh-my is it expensive!! I know you can get chocolate with malitol but who wants to eat that?? I am with you – carob rocks.

    xoxo,
    Amy

    Hi Amy,
    I am so excited about these snacks, as I need to eat about every hour or two and if I don’t have something with me I opt for food that’s available and that’s never any good! For some reason I am unable to see the actual recipes :( Is there something I’m doing wrong?

    When we travel I take heaps of snacks as well, but usually bring them back home as I’m not a snacker at heart. It’s more a matter of principle, I hate to feel left out and grumpy if there is nothing available on the rare chance I feel like some- sad but true! :)

    Perfect timing! I am doing some advance planning to take my 2 gluten free girls on a six dance dance competition trip. Snacks are a big part of my planning, so I am excited to have some new ideas. We are staying in a town I am not familiar with, and in a regular hotel to be with the team (no kitchen.) I am going to go crazy on the snacks to make up for not knowing exactly what to expect every meal. I can live on salads if I need to for six days – an 8 and 10 year (who is competing) needs more!

    @Elaine Locke, You are such a good mom!!! I used to teach elementary school and many moms would just stock up on processed foods. I wish more moms would make the sacrifice (and it is a huge time sacrifice!!) for their child’s health. Kudos to you!

    This is so important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle- people find it so hard (including me!) to not fall off the bandwagon when they travel. With these snacks you can’t go wrong. Love it. Can’t wait to try the carrot date muffins!

    @skylor, Those muffins are so good. :) I understand what you mean about traveling! I have been hungry on enough road trips to know better.

    Where do you get your cashews? I really struggle to find safe, cross contamination free nuts and I love cashews!
