Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet potato chips is one of the easiest snack recipes you can make. Whether you are making it for your kids (as an alternative for the highly processed chips) or for yourself to snack on while watching a movie. They are crispy, tasty, yummy, and just full of flavor! There is a trick to baking them so crispy as if they are fried: keep your oven at 200 degrees, flip the chips halfway to make sure they become crispy on both sides.

Homemade Peanut Butter

In all honesty, peanut butter is one of those foods that you really don’t need to buy from a store. Anyone who owns a food processor can make it in less than 10 minutes with only ONE ingredient (peanuts). YES, its that easy! Not only that, but it is much healthier too!! Most of the imported peanut butter that we find at all the supermarkets in Egypt contain hydrogenated oil and added sugar. We all know that nuts are already high in fats (the good kind of fats that our body recognizes and needs). Factories add hydrogenated oil to extend the shelf life of their products, and you know that saying of “the longer the shelf life, the shorter yours” so, no thank you, we don’t need the jar with the one year expiration date. Once you start making your own peanut butter or any nut butter at home, you will never go back to buying the manufactured ones. Try it!

Date Pops

I like to call them energy on a stick. The bitterness of the raw cacao and the natural sweetness of the dates are the perfect mix to satisfy your sweet tooth. Imagine having a sweet treat that is also an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Dates are a rich source of B vitamins, magnesium, potassium, copper, manganese, calcium, and iron. Healthy food doesn’t have to be boring and the date pops are the biggest example of a delicious, fun, tasty but healthy treat.
