Snacking is a past-time for many. The trick-or-treat is to find snacks that bring us pleasure and good health. The following two recipes are easy to prepare and eat. Both offer excellent health benefits to boot.
Our Chillin' Chia Seed Pudding is sweeter and creamy while Roasted Bacon Bitz offer crunch and salt. Enjoy!
Chillin' Chia Seed Pudding
Great for breakfast as well as dessert, chia seed pudding is one of the best snacking options out there. Check it out.
▫️2 Tablespoons of chia seeds
▫️1/3 cup of coconut or almond milk, (or a mix of both)
▫️Dash of vanilla, cinnamon, cacao nibs
▫️1/2 teaspoon of maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon of cacao powder to enjoy a more chocolately treat
- Top pudding with organic raspberries
▫️Add all ingredients together into a small bowl.
▫️Stir thoroughly, cover with plastic wrap and let sit in fridge from 30 minutes to overnight. (The longer the mixture sits, the more gelatinous and pudding-like it becomes.)
When ready to eat, top with berries. Enjoy!
Roasted Bacon Bitz
This recipe is too good and easy to be true! When you're in the mood for snacking and you're craving salty and crunchy, look no further. Your roasted bacon bits are good to eat right out of the oven or they can be placed in a plastic zip lock bag and eaten on the run. Your call!
▫️2-3 slices of bacon, (Applegate Organic Uncured Sunday Bacon)
▫️Pre-heat oven for 15 min at 350 degrees F
▫️While oven is warming, line a baking pan with aluminum foil and place a rack on top
▫️Add bacon slices side-by-side on top the rack
▫️When oven reaches desired temperature, put pan with bacon on bottom rack
▫️Let the bacon roast approx 40 min until crunchy.
▫️Remove the bacon from the pan and break up into small pieces. Eat immediately if desired.
This crunchy bacon treat is also excellent later on in the day.
