Healthy, Quick ‘n Easy Snack/Breakfast For You and Your Spawn

by Gina

This is more assembly instructions than a true recipe…

What you’ll need:

  • Lightly salted rice cakes (Quaker has a widely available brand of rice cakes)
  • Peanut butter or other nut butter
  • Your favorite fruit and/or chocolate chips

Take a lightly salted rice cake. Spread peanut butter (or your preferred nut butter) over the top of it. Add your fruit of choice to the top of the peanut butter layer. Boy Spawn and I both like thinly sliced bananas and strawberries. Girl Spawn prefers whole raspberries in the shape of a smiley face. Experiment with your favorite nut butters and fruits, and let your spawn experiment with different shapes and flavors. It lends well to preschool aged DIY. It’s also good with chocolate chips, either alone or with fruit. Don’t discount the rice cake until you try it with nut butters and fruit and/or chocolate embellishments! Depending on what you top it with, it can be low carb, low cal, and low fat…
