Tacoma Boys Favorite Snack Recipes
While some snack recipes may seem like a no-brainer, it can be fun to get creative with new ideas. Rather than grabbing an apple and cheese or a handful of nuts, you can try different small recipes to satisfy your hunger throughout the day. Other than homemade trail mix, it’s also easy to make customized snack packs with a variety of foods —Think hummus, olives, crispy chickpeas, cured meats, rice crackers, avocado— The options are endless! And it’s simple enough to throw together odds and ends like these for a little snack box on the go or at home.
For trail mix snack recipes, you don’t always have to include the standard nuts and dried fruit if that’s not your thing! You could start with something different like wasabi peas, crispy chickpeas, dried mango, popcorn, or oyster crackers if that sounds good to you.
Ingredients for Small Bites
Another tasty and crisp snack to enjoy in trail mix is puffed quinoa, which may sound new or odd but is simple and tasty. This puffed quinoa recipe is as easy to make as popcorn and fits well with other small ingredients for a snack mix or trail mix packed with protein! Snack recipes like these are ideal when you’re looking to use what ingredients you already have on hand. You might even have all the ingredients for a satisfying trail mix within your kitchen already— Just grab those odds and ends and make new snack recipes all on your own.
