Healthy snack ideas

Ideas for making these recipes found on the above link even healthier:

I'd replace peanut butter with an other nut or seed butter. Peanut butter is a high allergen, high fat butter that can harbor bacteria for months even after processing. For more see salmonella in peanut butter.

Replace butter with coconut oil.

Some new ideas I just learned about & want to try

Healthy apple 'donuts'
Core an organic apple, slice it into rings, spread almond butter on top, then top with organic raisins, organic unsweetened shredded coconut, or chopped nuts  

Healthy banana split
Banana halves, spread on your almond butter and top with a healthy item listed above. Your kids will have fun topping them & everyone will enjoy eating them!

In a food processor mix dates with (almond, walnut, pecan, macadamia) nuts, organic unsweetened coconut, spices of your choice (nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, cacao, maca, pure vanilla extract, other natural extracts, vanilla bean, clove), mix it up! Roll into little balls and place on a cookie sheet... Pop in freezer for 15 min.
