Ever get in the mood for a really great satisfying snack? Well, this is a good one; just applesauce, cottage cheese, and pecans. We have eaten this little snack for a long time and we always enjoy it. It fills us up and we feel that we have been eating something that is good for us.
This is a recipe that can be made your own by whatever you choose to add to the bowl. The applesauce can be sugar free or not; it can have cinnamon for extra flavor. You can make your own applesauce if you want; that is what we did.
Cottage cheese is another by choice food. There are so many kinds in the store that you can choose: fat free, 2%, or 4%. Whatever kind your family likes will do just fine. We used the 2% for this recipe, but we have used the different kinds and they all work.
The nuts we choose for the applesauce and cottage cheese snack were pecans; they are just really good. We have found that pretty much any kind of nut works well though. We just had a large bag of pecans at the time and used them.
We think this recipe is a better choice sometimes when you want something to snack on. We know potato chips are great to grab for a snack as well as a candy bar (love them both), but this is a nice change that is truly delicious.
Applesauce and cottage cheese is also a really quick snack to make because it is fast to grab when everyone takes a TV break at night. You can get up and have your snack made in no time; probably beat everybody back to the TV. Hope you try it and enjoy it as much as our family.
