Healthy Easter Snack Mix

Easter is fast approaching and I am all about the Cadbury Mini Eggs, the best chocolate candy ever created. While I am a chocolate fan in moderation, I am not ready to share those treats with my two-year-old daughter.

I am completely fine with giving my daughter the occasional birthday party cupcake, but when it comes to normal snacking, I prefer offering her healthier alternatives. For Easter this year, I decided to put together a really simple snack mix that I could pack into a few plastic eggs – she can survive without chocolate and jelly beans for another year.

Throwing together this mix couldn’t be any easier, I usually toss a few handfuls of the bunnies and peanut butter chips, a few packets of the fruit bites {estimating 10 per package}, and a few letter cookies as they are about twice the size of the bunnies.

The eggs I purchased are small and fit about a tablespoon of the mix – a few bunnies, peanut butter chips, and a fruit snack and maybe one letter cookie. The smaller eggs are actually perfect for my two-year-old, otherwise she would just keep snacking or beg me for more.

I created a similar mix for Christmas and it was a big hit. I thought anything bunny shaped was perfect for Easter and the strawberry bites provide a little Springtime pop of color. The peanut butter chips, which I also included in the Christmas mix, were added for a dose of protein and fat. The letter cookies are adorable and she’s currently learning and exploring the alphabet – eating and learning at the same time, genius.

If you are looking for additional add-ins, I used mini marshmallows for the Christmas mix, and there are always chocolate chips, dried fruits, nuts, etc. I plan to fill the eggs the night before Easter to avoid the food from going stale and maybe we’ll even conduct a mini egg hunt in the apartment – parenthood really brings out my wild side! 😉

Enjoy,
Anna
