The other morning on Periscope, I made a homemade version of Goldfish Crackers. It only has four ingredients and tastes great. At the time I couldn’t remember the source of the recipe but have since found it. The simple but awesome recipe was not my own and I want to ensure I give the proper credit to the inventive blogger who created it (See recipe below). This got me thinking of what other homemade (healthier versions) of snack food are floating around the internet. So here is a round up of what I found.
Homemade Goldfish – Tasty Kitchen
Note: To make these Gluten Free, substitute 1 cup of Gluten Free Flour and be sure the cheese you use is gluten free. Pre-shredded cheese is often not gluten free so it might be best to shred the block yourself.
Homemade Fruit Roll-ups – Mommy Musing
You can make these with far less sugar then the store bought versions however you won’t be going anywhere for a while since they essentially dehydrate in your oven for 6-8 hours. I love Thin Mints however I had the laundry list of ingredients
Homemade Thin Mints – The view from Great Island
Ok, these are not exactly a healthy remake. I love Thin Mints however I don’t love the laundry list of ingredient that don’t agree with my body. I am excited to try this alternative.
Homemade Apple Chips – Sally’s Baking Addiction
These are simpler to the fruit roll up recipes in that you are using your oven as a dehydrator. You can use a mandolin to cut then super thin so they are nice and crispy. I don’t have one so I just tried to cut them as thin as possible by hand, which worked fine.
Homemade Doritos – Momables
A while back I had bought corn tortillas instead of flour for a recipe and tried this out to use up the excess ingredient. They we’re crunchy and flavorful and a lot less powdery then the store bought version.
Homemade Nutri-Grain Bars – Weelicious
I know for so long I though Nutri-Grain is healthy right? No… not really. Sure it has some fiber but it is loaded with chemicals. I like this version soooo much better. Sometimes I end up eating these before they ever make it into my kids lunch. Yes, they are that good. Watch Catherine McCord’s video to see how easy these are to make.
