Quick and easy after-school snacks
You know the drill – back from school, straight to the fridge. If you're looking to fill it with healthy snacks (RIP Curly Wurlies) here are 10 delicious recipes your kids will love. On top of that, they're quick and easy to whip up, so you won't shed a tear when they disappear in seconds.
1. Courgette muffins
Top tip: this is a sticky mixture, so silicon muffin cases are your new BFF.
2. Savoury popcorn
Top tip: pre-mix the spices to save time (and adapt according to your children's tastes).
3. Cheese and sweetcorn pancakes
Top tip: make up the batter in the morning (or the night before) and then keep in the fridge until you're ready to cook them.
4. Simple onion bhajis
Top tip: if you want a healthier version, bake the bhajis in an oven at 200°C for around 15 minutes instead of frying them.
5. Sweet potato wedges
Top tip: let the kids help with tossing the wedges in oil if they (and you) don't mind getting their hands dirty.
6. Easy garlic bread
Top tip: prepare this up to the baking stage and then wrap in foil and chill until you're ready to cook.
Top tip: if you have fussy eaters, the jalapeno pepper is definitely optional.
8. Muffin pizzas
Top tip: turn making these into a fun activity by roping in the kids to help.
9. Carrot cookies
Top tip: tell yourself they count as part of your five a day…
