snack like a kid.

When it comes to mid-afternoon snacktime my tastebuds have a tendency to…regress. Its inexplicable but as soon 3pm hits my palate forgets about all the years I’ve spent growing to appreciate new, complex flavour profiles and instead starts crazing (crazy craving? you wish you thought of it) the flavours of my childhood.

In my fam after school snack-fare included: granola bars, fruit to gos, soup (i was a strange child. more explanation on my childhood soup obsession here), goldfish crackers AND – the king of after school snacks – pizza flavoured EVERYTHING.

Be it bagel, pop or pocket: pizza snacks were (and are) THE JAM.

So naturally, when the “after-school hour” hits and my mind turns to all things munchie, I know that only one snack will suffice. With a few tweaks of course…

“Bagel Bite” Style Pizza Snacks (All Grow’d Up)

  • 1 whole wheat english muffin
  • 2 triangles of light laughing cow cheese OR (vegan-styles) 1/4 avocado mashed with 2 tbsp nutritional yeast 
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • fresh basil 
  • pepper
  • cherry tomatoes, sliced (optional) 
Split and toast the english muffin in a toaster or pan. Spread each half with 1 serving of cheese or 1/2 the avocado mash. Broil in oven or toaster oven for 2 minutes or so. Then top with about 1.5 tbsp of tomato paste/side, fresh basil, pepper + cherry tomatoes (I like to keep it simple but you can add any toppings you like!).
Do they still play re-runs of full house after school? I miss me some Kimmy Gibbler.
