We can’t let a busy, important, beautiful woman go hungry now can we? We have found some delicious and healthy bite-sized treats anyone can throw in their bag and munch on whenever they feel a little peckish.
Sweet Bagel Chips
Get your stale cinnamon-raisin bagels and cut them crosswise into thin rounds. Brush the tops with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake 10 minutes at 160 degrees C; flip, brush with more butter, sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar and bake 10 more minutes.
Garlic Bagel Chips
Melt 3 tablespoons butter with 2 chopped garlic cloves in a saucepan. Slice stale plain bagels crosswise into thin rounds. Brush the tops with melted garlic butter and sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Bake 10 minutes at 160 degrees C; flip, brush with more butter, sprinkle with more grated Parmesan and bake 10 more minutes.
Split a whole-wheat pita into 2 rounds, then cut into wedges. Broil until golden, then sprinkle with grated cheddar and salsa and broil until the cheese melts. Top with sliced scallions.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan with 1/3 cup each honey and brown sugar, and a pinch of salt. Mix in 2 cups rolled oats, 1 cup each chopped nuts and dried fruit, and 2 tablespoons wheat germ. Press into a parchment-lined 8-inch-square pan and bake 30 minutes at 150 degrees C. Cool, then cut into bars.
Cook a 15-ounce can drained chickpeas in an ovenproof skillet with 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1 teaspoon each cumin and smoked paprika, 2 minutes. Season with salt, then bake 20 minutes at 220 degrees C.
Loaded Oatmeal Cookies
Prepare a package of pre-mix oatmeal cookie box as the label directs, but substitute 1/2 cup applesauce for the butter or oil and add 1/4 cup wheat germ and 1 cup each chopped mixed nuts, dried fruit and shredded coconut to the batter.
