It’s been a busy week-end, with St. Patrick’s Day and other activities for warmer days. Perhaps you haven’t had time to check your cookbook or creative spirit for healthy snacks made only from the ingredients in the last post.

I want to share a cookie recipe I like that has some redeeming qualities as far as nutrition is concerned. But the time factor is way off the chart as far as “right- now- eat-ability” (if that is a word) is concerned. Check it out. Kids will love making them but they won’t like not being able to eat them right away.

Dream Keeper Cookies

2 egg whites
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup nuts, chopped
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Beat whites very stiff. Gradually add sugar until stiff peaks form. Stir in nuts and mix lightly.  Drop by teaspoon on cookie sheets. Place cookies in preheated oven. Turn off oven and leave cookies in the oven overnight. Next morning, carefully pull each cookie from the paper or foil. Enjoy.

Now I’ll put on my thinking cap for other fast snacks using these ingredients, but with a much, much shorter time-frame. What are some of your healthy snack ideas using these ingredients?
