One of our favorite things to do together is cook–and with all of the extra time we have during summer break, it is easy to pile up a lot of irresistible desserts. We have been trying to pick healthier things to make that provide lots of energy to get through long days of camp, swimming and playing! Below are a few favorites:
Warm Chocolate Melting Cups
I was shocked to learn that these are only 200 calories apiece. My daughter loves the individual portion size and this recipe has an impressive presentation for something that does not take much time!
No Bake Healthy Chocolate Chip Blondies
On hot days, who wants to turn on the oven? I love that these are no bake AND only take one bowl!
Strawberry Ice Cream
This is perfect for cool days or as a way to use up strawberries after a picking outing!
I kind of rolled my eyes at making these because buying goldfish is so cheap–and isn’t the whole point that they’re an easy snack? But, I stand corrected. These were super fun to make and taste really great.
Homemade Animal Crackers
Another one that is a huge hit with kids! Bust out the cookie cutters and make this awesome snack. Added bonus: my kiddo makes up stories with the animals during snack time!
