Well, we’ve had our requisite four days of spring here in South Texas and now the temperatures are in the 90s so out comes the water table in the back yard, the sunscreen, the mosquito spray (yep, we use DEET and our pediatrician said it was best because have you met the mosquitos in Houston??), and warm-weather snacks.
I recently bought some pop molds that I’ll use to make fresh fruit and yogurt popsicles, we do fruit smoothies year round, and I busted out a batch of homemade oatmeal raisin pecan cookies last week (and the two mom’s in the household are guilty of finishing them off), but the easiest shmeziest snack of all has been a combo of yogurt and fresh berries that I’ve been serving up with homemade granola.
Well, the granola was actually meant to be granola BARS, but I’ve yet to perfect the recipe, and they’re more crumbly than intended. But crumbly delicious works!
Here’s what we use:
MMMMMMM, dee-lish! And just the kind of snack that the parents can enjoy alongside the kiddos, too!
Okay, now your turn to dish on a favorite spring/summer snack!
