Healthy kid snack

Current kid snack obsession:
3 cups raw nuts. (We like pecans and almonds)
1/3 cup honey.
2 tsp cinnamon.
teeny little bit of cayenne pepper.

Stir together and bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes.
Unless it's me today. Then forget about them and bake them until the house starts to fill with smoke and the smell overwhelms you. Remove from oven and bring to the deck. Once they cook, feed them to the kids who remark, "They're a little burnt, but it's ok." Domestic goddess. All the way.

What are your favorite healthy afternoon snacks? I'd love some recipes to mix it up a bit.


  1. You're funny! This sounds yummy! Today's snack in our house was Greek Yogurt Almond Butter Dip. 8 oz plain Greek yogurt (we prefer the full fat kind!), 1/4 cup almond or other nut butter, 1 TBSP of honey, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Mix everything together and enjoy with fresh fruit. :)
