Cinnamon & Sugar After School Snacks

Cinnamon & Sugar After School Snacks


When I was younger, I dreamed of having a mother who would have icy, cold lemonade and fresh, baked chocolate chip cookies waiting for me when I got home from school. Alas, my mom worked instead of baked and felt a snack of chocolate chip cookies was a bad one. In that respect, I've grown to think that the best afternoon snacks are those that combine a little bit of sweet, with a little bit of healthy. These cinnamon and sugar tostadas come together in minutes and pair nicely with fresh cut fruit, making them an ideal after school snack. Kids can help by mixing and sprinkling the cinnamon sugar on the whole wheat tortillas. Want the super easy recipe? Just



Cinnamon Toastada After School Snack
From Martha Stewart

2 (10-inch) whole-wheat tortillas
1 tablespoon light-brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons butter, room temperature

  1. Heat broiler, with rack 4 inches from heat. Place tortillas on a baking sheet.
  2. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Dividing evenly, spread butter on one side of each tortilla; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  3. Broil until sugar is golden brown and has melted, 1 to 2 minutes. (Tortillas will puff under broiler and become flat again once taken out.) Cut each tortilla into wedges.

Serves 2.

A family friend brings this to parties with her all the time. She dices up a bunch of fruit such as kiwi and strawberries and its a salsa for the the cinnamon wedges.

I have made these since I was a kid, I didn't think it was very healthy and I thought other people would think it was gross, but now that it's on the website I don't feel bad about making it anymore!

I just tried this recipe out with my roommate - it was delicious!! One pointer though: watch it VERY closely! It says 1-2 minutes cooking time. It definitely means it!
