Spring is in the air. And do you know how I can tell? Allergies! I don’t know about the rest of the planet, but right here, right now, it’s allergy chaos. Never mind that Austin has been engulfed with what is now going on three WAVES of the flu. Just a couple of weeks ago, my daughter’s whole third grade class was pretty thin. Some out for allergies. Others out with a virus. Thank goodness the little babes are in a little bit better spirits this week.
Every year they have a fun book party to celebrate reading a certain amount of ‘crown books’. This year the request from the librarian was for Spring themed eats and treats. So, I was put to the task of whipping up a delicious Spring snack mix after a few of the parents got a peak of my Camp Out Trail Mix from a while back.
Of course, since this mix is for the kids, I didn’t stick so much with ‘healthy’ or ‘skinny’ as I did with focusing on ‘better options’ such as whole grains, organic, and gluten-free pieces to go into this mix. I also try to stick with a blend of half sweet and half savory so that the kids aren’t fully loaded with sugar at the end of the day.
Most of the bits and pieces in here come from the same organic brand that’s well known for it’s bunny shapes. In fact, almost everything, except for the candies and marshmallows are all from that same brand and it happens to be one of my favorites.
My little sneak couldn’t keep her hands off the snack mix. Not even when I was trying to take pictures here. It’s easy to see why too.
Off to school the whole huge container of snack mix went this morning. I can’t wait to hear how well all the kiddos enjoyed this mix at their well deserved party!
