If you’re looking for a healthy snack that will satisfy your sweet tooth, try fruit! Fruit is naturally low in sugar, contains vitamins and minerals, can be mixed with other foods for added taste, and best of all you can eat it anytime of the day. Here are five tasty snacks that are perfect for when you need something sweet.
-Apple: Apples are a great way to get your daily dose of vitamin C. They also contain potassium which aids in muscle recovery after exercise. If you want something sweeter, take some dried cranberries or raisins from your pantry shelf and combine them with an apple slice. The tartness from the fruit will cut through the sweetness in the dried berries or raisins giving both flavors a chance to shine through.
For a quick fix, try making some baked goods. A batch of these cookies will only take an hour or so, and they’re the perfect substitute for that afternoon snack craving. I recommend adding some chocolate chips to the recipe if you want something a little extra indulgent!
1 Cup Butter (softened)
