Being on-the-go doesn’t mean letting yourself go. With all the festivals you’ll be going to and the Holy Week trips lined up, it’s important to keep in shape and stay healthy to maximize your travel experience!
Resist the urge to buy unhealthy snacks by bringing your own homemade alternatives. Here are recipes to some of our favorite easy-to-make travel snacks.
- 2 under-ripe bananas
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- Salt and pepper
Slice your bananas into thin strips.
Coat both sides of each strip in brown sugar.
Lay the dipped bananas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and drizzle olive oil on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake at 400°F for 16-20 minutes.
- Keep in room temperature for one to two days.
- ⅓ cup maple syrup
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- 4 tsp. vanilla extract
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 5 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 2 cups whole raw almonds, coarsely chopped
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 1 cup chopped dried apricots
Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Gradually mix in the vegetable oil.
Add oats and almonds, and fold the mixture together with a rubber spatula.
Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and spread into a thin, even layer. Compress until the mixture is compact.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Rotate the sheet halfway through to get an even golden brown color.
Remove the granola from the oven and let cool on a wire rack at room temperature, about an hour.
Break the cooled granola into any size piece, and pile it into a mason jar or any airtight container. Mix in dried cranberries and dried apricots.
- Kept at room temperature. Each serving will last for up to two weeks.
