You’ve been loving the 15 Minute Meals and having those breakfast lunch and dinner options that you can turn to when you don’t have that much time is essential for any pro home. But for me, well I’m also a snacker and I think it’s very important that we don’t undervalue the time in between meals when you have those salty or sweet cravings. What I generally regret doing is turning to the bag of chips or those processed snacks. So, I’m going to be showing you my top five snacks of all time! Those quick and easy munchies that are going to satisfy your sweet and salty craving but they’re going to do it in a much more sustainable way because they’re all made completely from scratch. Plus, they all come together with just five ingredients each. Click here to check out the full video!

    I appreciate the breakdown, but it would really help to have serving sizes for each recipe. For instance, roughly how many crackers does the recipe make? How many energy balls?
