What’s your go-to snack for travel? This segment is one of my favorites, because long ago, as a momma of teeny ones, I learned that the snacks along the way make or break the trip. Sounds like I’m exaggerating, but seriously – we either arrive at our destination feeling energized and in a good mood, OR cranky, hangry, and in a bad mood from all of the sugar and sluggish from junk food. I think even more for kids – snack affect their mood.
So I took my favorite newest 5-ingredient creation to Channel 5 KDSK’s Show Me St Louis…and it was a blast! In here find the best muesli I use to make these easy travel-friendly chocolate chip power cookies – Seven Sundays Muesli. Learn about it and travel snack trips by watching!
5-Ingredient Power Cookies
2 really ripe bananas
3/4 cup unsweetened peanut butter
2 cups blueberry buckwheat chia muesli
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350º. In a medium bowl, mash bananas with the back of a fork until mixture is pureed.
- Add peanut butter, stirring mixture together until smooth. Add vanilla extract and muesli, mixing until well incorporated. Fold in dark chocolate chips.
- Scoop mixture into 2 tablespoon rounds onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Press each down a little to shape. Bake for 10 minutes, until cookies look done, but chocolate chips are still gooey.
- Remove and let cookies set 5 minutes. Dive in!
