Hey everyone, and happy 2021! It is Jaena here from the blog team. I know the struggle of finding delicious but healthy things to fit your cravings, whether it be after school lunchtime, etc. but I'm here to give you some quick, easy, and healthy afterschool snacks anyone can make! Let me know down below in the comments if you try any of them out :)
1. Apple Bites
The first one is apple bites! This recipe is so simple, you only need 2 ingredients and any toppings you like. Collect however many apples you need, I usually use about 1 since apples are pretty filling, and wash it off. Once it is thoroughly washed, you can use an apple cutter to cut your apples, or cut them with a sharp knife into any shape. You could also take the skin off with a knife, but PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHILE DOING THIS! Put your sliced apples on a plate and then add your desired dip! Some of my favorites are peanut butter, carmel, fruit dip, or nutella! There are also a variety of toppings you coat your apples in such as chocolate chips, nuts, sprinkles, and coconut shreds!
The second snack is also a personal favorite, smoothies! There are hundreds of recipes you can use to make smoothies, but another one of my favorites is strawberry banana and mixed berry! Pinterest has amazing recipes for smoothie bowls, so if you are looking for a different flavor I would 100% recommend looking on there or a YouTube channel called “Twin Coast”. Some tips for making any sort of smoothie is to make sure your fruit is frozen, and to not add ice if it is. Oat milk is also amazing for smoothies since it makes it creamy and is a healthier alternative to regular milk. If you are wanting a thick smoothie bowl you only need a little liquid. Make sure you shake up/mix your smoothie after blending for a few seconds so your smoothie is one consistency. Comment below your favorite smoothie recipe for others to try!
3. Chocolate Peanut Butter Bananas (yum!)
Chocolate peanut butter bananas is the next amazing snack you need to try! Grab some bananas, 1 whole one probably makes around 10 pieces, and cut them into about ½ inch thick pieces. Grab some peanut butter and add a little onto one side of the banana and sandwich another piece of banana on top! Freeze for about 10 minutes. Then, melt some chocolate chips (milk or dark), in intervals in your microwave being careful to not burn your chocolate! Dip each individual banana sandwich into the melted chocolate, and add onto a freezer safe plate lined with parchment paper. Freeze until the chocolate has completely hardened, and they are amazing! 10/10 recommend!
4. HEALTHY cookie dough
Another sweet one, but healthy cookie dough is a great after school snack! It only takes 5 ingredients, and makes about 1 serving size. You will need 4 tablespoons of almond flour, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, 1 tablespoons of almond or peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons of milk. Stir thoroughly until it becomes a thick crumbly cookie dough texture. Add in some chocolate chips and you're done! So amazing and healthy as well!
5. Peppers & Cream Cheese
To finish off with a viral snack, peppers and cream cheese! You will only need a bell pepper, cream cheese, and everything bagel seasoning (any brand works!) Cut your bell peppers into thick strips, making sure you cut off the top, end, and deseed it. Spread a generous layer of cream cheese on a bell pepper strip and sprinkle some bagel seasoning to top it off. Super simple, healthy, and amazingly good! All of the components of this snack work so well together to give an amazing flavor!

Hey guys I’m Emma and today’s blog post will be about the best Fall-themed deserts. If you are as crazy as me and go all out for fall, this blog post is for you!
Pumpkins, Sweaters, and orange leaves are fall but let me help you have an even better autumn experience! Here are my top 3 favorite fall desserts...
1. Pumpkin Pie
I love pumpkin pie at any time of the year. It could be winter, spring, or summer and I could still be eating pumpkin pie! My family has our own unique pumpkin pie recipe that makes it even more special. And of course, we always make more than one because we always eat it in less than 5 minutes haha. Some of my fav pumpkin pie recipes are Simply recipes or Sallys Baking Addiction.
2. Pumpkin Bread
As you might have noticed, I’m obsessed with pumpkins. But pumpkin bread. Once I have it I can’t stop. It's a pretty bad addiction. Pumpkin bread is made in so many ways but a recipe that’s my favorite is Food Networks. So I highly recommend you try it out!
3. Pumpkin Cupcakes
I not only love pumpkin cupcakes but I love making them. It’s like doing chemistry, but in your kitchen. If I had either to have soda for the rest of my life or Pumpkin cupcakes, I would for sure choose pumpkin cupcakes. My favorite pumpkin cupcake recipe is Live Well Bake Often.
