Crunchy Granola Clusters

Sometimes you just need something to snack on…a nibbly kind of snack for a quick bit of energy and to satisfy a craving. Today I am here with some Crunchy Granola Clusters which do just that. A similar recipe to my favourite granola but with crushed nuts and baked slowly and packed together, you leave it to cool and then break it up into finger size bites. Perfect for a little on the go snack if you have pushchair aged children or for after school for the older ones. It’s pretty good for busy mummies too!

Super Sweet & Healthy Apple, Carrot & Raisin Muffins

Drumroll please... there’s a new sweet muffin recipe for you on the menu this week - tried and tested on the little tummies, and sure to be a crowd pleaser for you too! I like to keep the snacks as varied and healthy as possible, with as many nutrients as I can manage, and these little delights are no exception. Packed with carrots, apples and raisins, as well as some nutty protein, they are great snacks for older children but also in mini version can be a good baby-led weaning food (just make sure you chop the nuts finely). They also work well as a breakfast on the go. Another bonus (like all my recipes) is that you can swap ingredients in and out - leave the raisins out or swap them them for chopped dates or apricots; add seeds instead of nuts or use a mix of different nuts. It’s up to you!

Little Trekkers Trail Mix

Nuts! I am nuts about nuts! I love snacking on nuts, nut butters are my little slice of heaven on apples and they pack a punch in a morning smoothie that will keep you full and not hangry all morning. But truth be told my Clean Little Tummies don't share my love of nuts. Nut butters are passable, cashew nuts win too but other than that nibbling on nuts is not their thing. Unless they're mixed up in this trail mix of mine.
