Healthy Snacks for Road Trips
Have an away tournament coming up? Business trip? Who doesn’t love road trips? It’s nice to get a way, but sometimes we aren’t fully prepared, so stopping and grabbing fast food may be your only option. Yeah that option may be quick and easy, but most fast food restaurants are extremely limited to healthy options. We are hitting the road and making sure you’re prepared with easy healthy snack options, for you, your family and friends to enjoy!
Snack Option 1:
PB&A Peanut Butter and Apples Sandwiches
1 Apple (any variety will do)
2 tablespoons Peanut Butter or any nut butter you prefer
Start out by coring an apple of your choice and slicing it thinly. Then take any nut butter of your choice and spread it thinly over half of the wedges. Then you’ll place the other half of the apples to place on top to make an Apple and Peanut Butter Sandwich. ENJOY!
Snack Option 2:
Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bark (ice chest required)
2 cups full fat plain greek yogurt
2 Tbsp honey
4 Tbsp cacoa powder
2 ripe bananas
In a bowl, mix together the greek yogurt, honey and cacoa powder until well combined. Next you will want to slice the banana into coin slices. Pour half the yogurt mixture into a dish lined with parchment paper. Add a layer of bananas then pour the remaining yogurt mixture on top then finish the top with the left over banana. Freeze until solid 2-3 hours or overnight. Remove from freezer and cut into large chunks. Serve immediately or put into an airtight container and keep stored in the freezer. This breakfast bark can last up to two months in freezer. ENJOY!
Snack Option 3:
No Bake Oatmeal Energy Bites (ice chest required)
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup almond butter
½ cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
¼ cup ground flax seed
In a large bowl, mix all those ingredients together. After you’ve mixed everything together cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Letting the mixture chill makes for easier ball forming. Once chilled, roll out into tablespoon-sized balls. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to a week.
I hope these recipes make an appearance the next time you plan a road trip! ENJOY!
