Healthy Snacking Tips

Healthy Snacking Tips

SocialMoms and Snyder's of Hanover has teamed up together and asked me to share with my readers a delicious recipe including pretzels as an ingredient and my healthy snacking tips,you can read more about this request here.

A great recipe that I came across and have tried myself is the Snyder's of Hanover Pretzel Crust Key Lime Pie! It's delicious and it includes Hanover's Pretzels!

 Snyder's of Hanover Pretzel Crust Key Lime Pie
Serves 8-10:
Pie Crust:
5 oz. miniature pretzels
3 T. sugar
1 stick butter, melted

7 large egg yolks
2 (14-oz.) cans sweetened condensed milk
1 c. key lime juice (fresh or bottled)

Lime slice
Whipped cream, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
For crust, place pretzels in a food processor and pulse until pretzels have become fine crumbs. Transfer to a bowl and add sugar and melted butter. Stir to combine.
Press crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie plate. Distribute evenly.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

For filling, combine egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, and key lime juice. Whisk until well incorporated. Pour into cooled pie crust.

Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes. Center will still be slightly jiggly when taken out of oven and edges will JUST be beginning to brown. You don't want them to actually brown, so once you see signs of browning, remove from oven.

Cool on wire rack and then refrigerate for at least 6 hours before serving.

Garnish with a slice of lime and sprinkle coconut around edges

Whala! Your done! What a great tasting snack you will have!!Enjoy this with your family,It will make many smiles at the dinner table!!

Now for some of my healthy snacking tips:
  • Use as less sugar as possible
  • The more colorful your snacks are the best
  • When you use a smaller plate you will feel full quicker
  • Always try to stick to whole wheat products
  • Never snack after 7pm,,or 3 hours before bedtime
  • Always chew slowly
  • Drink a sip of water between each bite
I hope my tips help you,I'd love to read some more tips! Please feel free to comment with some of your tips or recipes with using Hanover Pretzels!

About Snyder’s of Hanover
Our tradition of good taste dates back to 1909 when Harry V. Warehime, founder of Hanover Canning Company, our parent company until 1980, began producing Olde Tyme Pretzels for the Hanover Pretzel Company. In 1963, the Bechtel Pretzel Company, founded by Bill and Helen Bechtel in 1947, was purchased and incorporated into Snyder’s Bakery. Bill developed the original recipe for the Sourdough Hard Pretzel that is still enjoyed by consumers today. More info on Snyder’s of Hanover
