Easy snacks the kids can help make

By on September 23, 2016

My kids can be very picky eaters, but they love snacking. They also love helping in the kitchen so I tried to find some good snack ideas they can even make ‘mostly’ themselves.

Banana Burritos

Easy snacks the kids can help make

Spread peanut butter over the tortilla. Peel banana and put it at the edge of the tortilla. Spread the banana with your optional topping (jelly, Nutella, marshmallow fluff) and then roll up the tortilla. Fold the ends to hold all the ingredients inside. For a yummy alternative warm up the tortilla in the microwave for 10-15 seconds for an ooey gooey treat.

PB & J
• Whole-Wheat Tortilla
• 2 Tbsps. Peanut Butter
• Banana
• 1 Tbsp. Jelly

Nutella and PB

Mini Calzones

Easy snacks the kids can help make

Ingredients :

• 1 Roll Your Favorite Biscuits
• 1/2 Ricotta Cheese
• 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella
• 2 tsps. Grated Parmesan Cheese
• Dash Salt
• Dash Garlic Powder


Open the biscuits and roll each one out flat with a rolling pin. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin take a little bit of flour and sprinkle over the rolling pin.

For each biscuit add a 1/4 tsp. of Parmesan cheese onto one half of the flattened biscuit. Then add 3 Tbsps. of mozzarella and a tsp. of ricotta. Sprinkle with a little salt and garlic powder. Fold the biscuit over on itself. Crimp with a fork.

Cook at 350F for 14-17 minutes or until the biscuit is golden brown. I also add some extra spaghetti sauce for dipping.
