Today I also administered the final exam of my first semester of teaching! It's been a fun semester, though I will say there is a huge learning curve when it comes to effectively managing a classroom of 40 seniors and graduate students AND teaching them something in the process. Needless to say, my brain is feeling a bit over-extended and blogging has been pushed to the wayside. So, I'm keeping this one short and sweet, sort of like this small and subtly sweet snack parfait that I've been meaning to share with you all for quite some time now.
1/2 small sweet potato, baked until soft
2-3 tbsp vanilla greek yogurt
2-3 tbsp granola
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Sprinkle of coconut
Sprinkle of chia seeds
Mash the sweet potato (skin, optional) and top with yogurt, granola and remaining ingredients. For an extra special snack, melt and drizzle 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter. Use gluten-free granola and coconut yogurt to make this one gluten-free, dairy-free.
A filling yet light treat, the combination of protein + complex carbs + cinnamon in this snack will help stabilize blood sugar levels and keep the afternoon munchies at bay.
