Spring break is almost here and everyone is busy finalizing their plans! Maybe you’re headed out on an exciting road trip or just planning to spend a fun week hanging out with friends?

Whatever your plans are it will be handy to have some delicious snacks when the munchies hit.  Yummy chocolate peanut buttery banana trail mix and pizza muffins make great travel snacks and fruit kabobs will be perfect to have while playing video games or having friends over.  Have a super fun holiday!!

Monkey Trail Mix

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of banana chips
  • ¾ cup peanuts

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter chips

Pizza Muffins

  • 2 tbsp finely fresh chopped basil (or 1 tbsp dried basil)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Using a paper towel, rub vegetable oil all over the inside of your 6-hole muffin tin to keep your muffins from sticking (Hint! If you only have a 12-hole muffin tin add a small amount of water to the unused cups so you don’t damage your pan)
  3. In a large bowl mix the flour, egg, milk, oil, cheeses, tomatoes, pepperoni and herbs. (Hint! Save a bit of the cheese to sprinkle on the top)
  4. Divide the mixture evenly into muffin pan and top with remaining cheese
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown
  6. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!

Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family

Both of my brothers have autism. I am 12 and a girl. I also have a 3 y/o sister. It always seems like my parents pay more attention to them then me. I don't want to tell them about it because they will think I'm being selfish. But i can't do ANYTHING fun. My little brother is allergic to half the ingredients in most candies, so I can never go trick-or-treating. And I have not had eggs since I was 3. I always have to do everything by myself. How do I deal with this?
