healthy after school snacks your kids will love

I don't like to admit it (because it means summer is coming to an abrupt end), but it's back-to-school time.

(Heck, it's been back-to-school time for weeks now for my nephews but I think they're district might be a little ahead of everyone else.)

Which makes this the perfect time to talk about after-school snacks. Forget about mini packages of chips, cheese curls, candy or any of the other junk you'll see in gargantuan packages at the grocery store. These seven easy after school snack recipes are all healthy and super easy to make.

So you can feel good about giving these snacks to your kids. And maybe to yourself as well.

Check out what I and some of my favorite foodie friends will be snacking on this fall:

1. Chocolate Beet Brownie Bites

Dude -- there are BEETS in these and no one will know because of the chocolate awesomeness

2. Blueberry Coconut Almond Smoothie

Lots of protein and oh-so yummy, thanks to Through Her Looking Glass

3. Healthy No-Bake Oat Bars

Did you see the words "no bake"? And sweetened naturally with dates and honey

4. Brown Paper Bag Popcorn

Here's one the kids can make for themselves in the microwave, courtesy of The Snappy Gourmet

5. 5-Minute Chocolate Pudding Cups

Dude -- there is TOFU in these and no one will know because of the chocolate awesomeness

6. Parmesan Whole Wheat Crackers

From Back to Her Roots, these are perfect with some homemade hummus or just solo

7. Peanut Butter Pretzel Energy Balls

It takes just 15 minutes to create this salty-sweet snack perfection from Healthy Seasonal Recipes
