Do you want to pack light and still have something delicious for your travels? If so, this post is for you! Here are some favourite snack recipes that will be perfect for your journey. These recipes all require minimal ingredients and prep time, and you can make them ahead of time or on the go.
These peanut butter cookies are delicious, and they will be perfect for your trip. They can last up to two weeks, so you don’t have to worry about them going bad quickly.
- One cup of sugar
- One teaspoon baking soda
- Half cup brown sugar
- Three-fourths cups of all-purpose flour ( do not pack the flour )
- One teaspoon of salt
- Half cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
- Two tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
- One large egg yolk
- One teaspoon vanilla extract
- Two tablespoons of milk
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and sugars. Make sure they are well blended. Add in peanut butter through milk, mix until dough forms. Scoop out rounded tablespoon-sized balls and place them on the baking sheet—Bake for eight to ten minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Let cool and enjoy.
Popcorn is a delicious and healthy snack, but it doesn’t have to be plain. You can make your caramel popcorn at home with a few simple ingredients. This recipe is easy to make and requires only a handful of ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.
Popcorn and caramel together make the perfect combination for a movie night at home or when you’re travelling on long flights. What better way to enjoy this snack if not in a classy and beautiful vehicle from your Local Mini dealerships?
- Popcorn kernels (amount depends on how many people you are serving)
- Brown sugar, packed
- Butter, cut into pieces
- Kosher salt, to taste
Place the brown sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add two tablespoons of butter to the mixture, stirring as it melts. Continue cooking for about three minutes after all ingredients have melted together, and turn off the heat when you’re satisfied with the consistency (it should be thick but pourable). Pour your caramel sauce over the popcorn and stir until all pieces are covered. Add more butter if you want a richer flavour, then salt to taste.
PB & J Sandwiches
The classic peanut butter and jelly is a timeless sandwich that you can enjoy both at home and on the go. An excellent choice for snacks when travelling, this simple combination of flavours has been around forever. And it’s easy to make your homemade version with some bread, PB & J spread (or whatever flavour jam you prefer), and a knife.
Adding chocolate to a sandwich is another great idea when you are in the mood for something sweet. It’s simple, and it requires only two ingredients: bread and milk or dark chocolate bars (or both). But if PB & J isn’t your jam, no pun intended, there are plenty of other options that will be perfect for your travel.
It’s all the rage to snack on healthy foods, but it can often feel impossible to stick with a healthier lifestyle when travelling or going out of town. So go ahead and try these snacks out next time you leave town, no matter how long that trip might be – it will help to keep you feeling full but still healthy till your next meal comes around!
