Do you find yourself craving all sorts of sweet, salty, crunchy snacks around 3:00 in the afternoon? Instead of reaching for another cup of coffee, a candy bar, or some chips, try this simple, guilt-free snack instead! It satisfies those intense cravings without involving future caffeine and/or sugar crashes.

Why this Recipe Works:

  • This afternoon snack is crunchy, salty, sweet, tart and it takes a good while to eat. Oh yah – and it involves chocolate!
  • This snack is great for on-the-go snacking! Just place the ingredients in a bag and you’re good to go.
  • The whole grains from the popcorn, the Omega-3’s from the walnuts, and bit of sugar from the cranberries and chocolate make this snack a perfect (and healthy) pick-me-up!

Top Tips for Making My Ultimate Craving Crusher:

  • If you’re not in the mood for sweets, I’ll replace the cranberries and chocolate chips with about 10 cashews or almonds.
  • Hosting a party or having guests? Triple the recipe!
  • Not a fan of dried cranberries? You can get creative and add in another dried fruit of choice!
  • When buying popcorn, be sure to choose a type with the least amount of fat as possible. Or if you’re feeling up to it, you can pop your own!
