6 Healthy Alternative Recipes For Our Favorite Snacks As Kids
Remember how exciting it was to open up our lunch boxes as kids? Of course, we wouldn’t be too excited about the sandwich or the apple. But, when we saw that twinkie on the side….oh yea! But, let’s be real, we can’t hoe down a twinkie or a tasty cake, like we used to. They’re too junky for us now. But, there are healthy alternative recipes for these things. Yes, a twinkie can now be healthy and nutritious!
Healthy Homemade Twinkies
Twinkies that are free of sugar and gluten, but high in protein and fiber? Sounds like a trick—but all it takes is a couple of smart substitutions like coconut flour instead of refined all-purpose flour and stevia extract instead of sugar. Each finished pastry has 8 grams of protein and 2 grams of sugar. Compare that to a real Twinkie, with 1 of gram protein and 18 (!) grams of sugar.
