Five kid-friendly snacks featuring
Palm Beach Creamed Honey
Busy parents know that keeping the kids happy with delicious and nutritious snacks can be a little challenging, and with the summer months upon us, it’s important to have lots of different snacks on hand in the house.
Palm Beach Creamed Honey offers a wide variety of tasty honey flavors that are perfect for summertime treats and kid-friendly snacks. Our creamed honey is made from pure, natural, unfiltered, raw honey that’s collected straight from the hive and stirred and refrigerated over the course of a few days to guide the crystallization process. This creates a smooth and creamy honey that’s perfect for adding to all kinds of recipes and snacks all summer long that you and your kids will love.
In this post, we’ll give you our five favorite kid-friendly snacks that feature Palm Beach Creamed Honey’s yummy creamed honey.
Here are five kid-friendly snacks featuring creamed honey
Apple slices and creamed honey
Super easy honey and peanut butter toast
Peanut butter toast is a simple go-to snack for any time of day, and adding a bit of creamed honey will keep your kids satisfied between meals. Plus, it’s easy enough for your kids to make themselves.
Simply toast a slice of bread and let it cool for a minute. Then, spread a bit of creamed honey and peanut butter on top. You can also top your toast with sliced banana or strawberries. We love the Chocolate, Strawberry, or Raspberry Creamed Honeys on our PB&H. We call it "Peanut Butter and Honey Time" in our house for a delicious afternoon snack.
Doctors recommend that children eat a wide variety of whole grains, protein, fruit, and vegetables. Finding ways to sneak in an extra serving of fruit and whole grains throughout the day can greatly benefit them in the long run, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Sweet, fruity smoothies perfect for summer
Smoothies are the perfect summertime snack because they’re a great way to cool down on a warm day, plus they’re filling enough to keep your kids satisfied until their next meal.
Use creamed honey as a substitute for sweetener in any of your favorite fruit smoothie recipes. You can also add a bit of greek yogurt, rolled oats, and nut butter for an extra bit of natural protein.
You can even get a little creative and use one of Palm Beach Creamed Honey’s flavored honey varieties like our delicious Raspberry, or our zesty Lemon flavored creamed honey to compliment your different smoothie flavors.
Baked honey-coated snack mix for crunchy munchies.
There’s nothing like a crunchy snack when you’re craving a little something during the day, but many crunchy snacks get to be a little too salty.
You can easily make your own healthy snack mix using plain cereals, oats, seeds, pretzels, and nuts. Pour the ingredients on a baking sheet that’s lined with parchment paper.
Drizzle some creamed honey on top and bake at 350 in the oven for 15-20 minutes, so the honey melts into the ingredients. Be sure to stir the mixture every so often to make sure it cooks evenly. When you pull it out of the oven, you’ll have a honey-glazed snack mix that’s warm and ready to munch on.
Easy homemade honey granola bars for the whole family
Store-bought granola bars are full of added sugars, preservatives, and artificial ingredients. Luckily, making your own granola bars at home is pretty easy.
The National Honey Board has an amazing Honey Granola Bar recipe that contains wholesome and healthy ingredients for you and your family. One recipe is enough to make an entire sheet pan of granola bars, so you’ll have plenty on hand throughout the week for a quick snack.
You can also play around with different varieties of granola bars. Mix in chocolate chips, dried fruit, seeds, and nuts to find your family’s own special granola bar snack.
