Ready or not, the school year is back. (Wasn’t it just June?) Fortunately for us all, our cows have been doing their thing, ensuring we have the tastiest ingredients to help kids ease back in. After all, there’s nothing like learning to make a person hungry.
This time of year gets busy. So, while you’ve been shopping for school supplies, we’ve been putting together a list of our favorite after school treats. Consider them homework incentives. But we won’t judge if you “accidentally” eat it all, because they’re really tasty.
Bring on all the flavor with this delectable dish. Chocolatey baked oats are only made better topped with the perfect combo of peanut butter and jelly. Is this somehow all the best flavors in one bowl? Maybe. (Definitely.)
Bright, tangy lemon bars add a pep in anyone’s step. Both Crystal butter and whipping cream add that je ne sais quoi to create the best kind of lemon pastry. These can do double duty as an after school snack and as a treat in their lunchbox. But to be honest, these are always great, no matter the time of day.
Take the pressure off with this time-saving recipe. All you need is 20 minutes for chewy, delectable goodness. Peanut butter is full of protein and magnesium, which will provide a helpful boost for studying. These bars are also great to make when your kid brings friends home…unannounced.
After school, a delicious creamy treat always hits the spot. This easy-to-make fan fave takes advantage of berry season with fresh, tasty raspberries. Mix them with our classic vanilla ice cream, some honey, and lemon-lime soda for a delightful snack!
What’s more fun than a good dip? And yes, that was a rhetorical question. We’ve figured out the best way to take advantage of all the super sweet summer strawberries. Our cheesecake dip brings together protein and fruit (or even graham crackers!) together for a perfect snack to have waiting for when they get home.
