Quick & Easy After School Snacks

We really love trying new recipes and sharing them when we find something that we like. So we put together this video of two recipes that we love as well as a super easy snack that Karli loves to make on her own. She takes a banana and slices it into in half inch pieces, spreads peanut butter on a slice and then tops the peanut butter with another slice of banana. It makes a delicious protein filled treat that she can make on her own!

Here are the other recipes in the video as well as the links to the websites where we found them. Both of the websites have tons of other great recipes as well!
