When you buy packaged cookies, granola bars, muffins, bread, etc. in store there are tons of additives and sugars to make them last longer. When we cook and bake at home we can omit the added junk and make healthier substitutions.
Here are 10 foods you should make instead of buy:
- Pumpkin Spice Muffins
- Banana Carrot Muffins
- Protein Bites
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
- Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Nutty Granola Bars
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Granola Bars
- Banana Bread
- Skinny Banana Bread
- Corn Loaves
We try to make a double batch of homemade bread every second week. We also take a few days a month to bake cookies, granola bars, and other school snacks, plus we make and freeze our own lasagnas, casseroles, and pizzas. It saves money and it’s healthier then buying in stores, saving you unnecessary calories, fats, and sugars.
What do you prefer to cook at home instead of buying in stores?
