Read some reviews:

“This book has been a real lifesaver!”

Chic Mummy

“Katie has a wonderful focus on stewarding our time and energy well, and she’s always looking for ways to make things more efficient and streamlined in the kitchen. For anyone still learning and transitioning to more real and traditional foods, Katie makes it all so simple and basic.She offers lots of explanations and info, in a completely down-to-earth way.”
–Stephanie Langford, editor of Keeper of the Home and author of
Real Food on a Real Budget

 

I’ve piddled around and tried a few of the recipes from Healthy Snacks to Go and I have to say, I had rave reviews from family and friends this weekend on our camping trip when I went all out on a bunch of recipes. There were three adults camping (one of whom is my husband, who typically grazes all day like a horse).We made crispy chickpeas, Kid-friendly beef, Power bars, Grain-free cardamom spiced granola, KS healthy granola bars and all of the recipes were a success. All of them will be made again, everybody was pleased, happy, and excited about all of the healthy and nourishing food/snacks, thanks to you.

My friend will probably be purchasing this e-book and some others I’m sure, since she helped me prepare everything and saw how easy it was, how inexpensive it was overall. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

 

“Katie’s writing style is both engaging and thorough. Her recipes are interesting enough for the accomplished cook yet explained in such a way that they feel approachable for those of us who routinely contemplate purchasing Cooking for Dummies.”
–Anne McClure of Catholic Mommy Brain, in a review at Catholic Mom

 

“I can tell you my proudest achievement to date. I am just starting our journey to ‘real food’. Last weekend I made homemade fruit roll ups from my own homemade applesauce! My husband was sooo impressed! Your HEALTHY SNACKS TO GO ebook is fabulous!”
–Jen (a reader)

In a time when recipes are abundant online, why would you pay a little extra money to purchase an e-book like this? Here’s why:

“There are so many great recipes included, all in one handy little book.No digging through sites, reading through comments for variations, and printing out page after page of feedback and adjustments. Katie has thoroughly vetted, worked through, and perfected each recipe she shares.”
(See the rest from Megan of SortaCrunchy)

 

“Katie’s recipes are very, very easy to understand even for someone like me who is phobic about baking…the Wheat Thins are labeled “hard.” But honestly, if I could make them, how hard can they actually be???”
–Beth from Fake Plastic Fish

I worked with a team of testers on Crispy Roasted Chickpeas together, with great feedback:

“My 15 month old son who’s allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, and nuts LOVES these! …It’s the first snack I’ve found that I can make at home and take with us to the store! I can keep fruit and frozen peas ready at home but they’re quite messy when we’re out. We’ve been eating rice chex but I didn’t like giving them to him.

I’ll send my feedback on everything later but had to say thank you thank you thank you!!!”
–M, from her phone

“I’ve made crispy chickpeas in the past…However, I had more success on your original recipe.”
–A

 

How About Food Sensitivities?

It seems like more and more people are having to cut foods from their diets these days. Healthy Snacks to Go has always had helpful icons so you can see at a glance whether a recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free or grain-free. Here’s the breakdown, out of 45 recipes:

    • grain-free: 33
    • gluten-free: 38
    • dairy-free: all but 4 have CF (casein free) adaptations
    • nut-free: 24 have the option
    • egg-free: 37, plus at least 3 of the remaining ones, maybe 5, would work great with the flax/water egg substitute
    • I even added a new section on how to substitute coconut, if you’re one of those people who just don’t like it. Winking smile

Please see the satisfaction guarantee below if you have food sensitivities and are worried you won’t get your investment’s worth out of Healthy Snacks to Go…

My favorite gluten-free blogger reviewed the book here: “Fantastic.”

What Changed in the Second Edition?

The first edition of Healthy Snacks to Go had been helping people cope with “running out the door hungry” syndrome for nearly two years, and it was time to upgrade the system.

Since the first edition of this book, which was my first eBook, I’d spent a lot of time in the kitchen. I had cooked many meals and made many snacks.

Life had also changed a lot: we added a child, discovered a gluten sensitivity, gone grain-free for a few periods of time, and moved to a new house.

My oldest child was now in school all day, so I had first-hand knowledge of the drudgery of packing lunches and managing snacks on the go daily. (For the record, I don’t like it. It’s a pain. But it did make me realize even more the value of a book of snacks!)

I’d also taken more steps along the real food journey: I have a grain mill and a dehydrator, I’ve delved into natural sweeteners, and we’ve cut even more processed foods from our cupboards.

I regularly make power bars, granola, crackers, muffins, and a whole bunch of other recipes from this book. I have food-stained printed copies of certain favorites and often open it on the computer for others.

The updates and new recipes in the second edition reflect all of this: more grain-free options (9 of the 11 new recipes), much less white sugar, dehydrator variations on some old favorites, and some handy fixes to problems with the old recipes. Don’t worry though – this new edition and nearly all the recipes it contains are still very applicable for a real food rookie or novice chef.

I’ve also started using recipe testers to make sure everything makes sense. They improve the format and final results SO much! When I asked readers to test the new granola bar improvements, I had no shortage of volunteers. We tweaked the instructions a bit, but the recipe held fast…literally. See what they have to say:

“My husband said they look just like the ones from the store, but taste better.” –V

“Perfect! Not crumbly at all. This will be my go-to recipe for making granola bars for on-the-go snacks.” –N

Spend Money to Save Money

Some people might wonder why you’d bother to pay for recipes when there are so many free on the Internet.

I’d sure like to think that I can save you money. In fact, if you make just a few batches of the famous power bars, packed with expensive ingredients like dried fruit and nuts, you’ll save the purchase price of the book vs. buying individual Larabars. A couple batches of homemade Wheat Thins, and you’ll not only have a much healthier end product, but a few bucks still in your pocket as well.

crispy roasted chickpeas (22) (475x356)

I won’t hide the fact that about a third of the recipes are posted right here at Kitchen Stewardship, including the FREE download of the No-Bake (Soaked) Granola Bars, also revised and updated. Another handful have been adapted from other recipes on the web. You could trawl the Internet to find good snacks…but they won’t be as thorough or easily accessible and printable as an eBook. I take great pains to make my eBooks user-friendly and practical, even putting all the photos on three pages so you can save printer ink.

    Great book! I just read it from cover to cover and can’t wait to get cooking. I just wish I didn’t have my A/C on so I could justify turning on the oven in the middle of the day.

    Hi Katie,

    This sounds like just what we need, with our newly limited budget and my trying to avoid processed stuff. One question- do many of the snacks freeze/keep? I will surely need good snacks when baby Andrew arrives but there’s no way i’ll be cooking from scratch for a while!

    Thanks,

    LP

    Katie Reply:

    Lindsay,
    That is a really good question! I had to go look at the table of contents just to see. Some wouldn’t keep well at all, like potato salad, but those are obvious. Here’s what would freeze well for sure: granola and bars, all muffins, crackers, and I assume the biscuits, but I admit we always eat those before I consider freezing! The power bars have stayed well for quite a while for me in the fridge, I bet a month (maybe more) wouldn’t be too long to ask of them. The dried fruit rolls would be perfect for the nursing nest… :) Thanks!

    with 8 kids, I struggle to keep up with the volume of food running through the pantry. I also struggle to keep it at my target cost – less than a quarter a pop. A handful a raisins or nuts is what I do now, but that doesn’t satify teenage boys. (go figure!)

    I just bought a book. :)

    For some reason the Amazon links don’t work for me on Chrome but I will try them on Explorer and see if that works.

    Have you considered including a page of included links as part of the index?

    I think this book is well written. The instructions are easy and include lots of Katie-esque extra info :) I’m glad you included a page on soaking. That is very helpful.

    Just a follow up note that NO! the affiliate links to Amazon aren’t working properly when viewing in IE either…

    I received an error message for the blender-in-one: “Looking for something?
    We’re sorry. The Web address you entered is not a functioning page on our site ” While other links aren’t mapping as affiliate links (with Kitchen Stew in the address bar) or are not returning what you had intended.

    Bottom line, in IE, the links are all good. The links to Amazon aren’t mapping as affiliate and if there is a search involved, well the search doesn’t result in anything but an error or random results.

    I would love to try the soaked granola bars which would be great for my three kids and hubbies weekly snacks. I love to soak things because of the nutritional benefit and how it helps our bodies process food better. Coming from a family with entergetic children and a mom striving to be healthy and fun, this would be a huge blessing because of the nutritional benefits, time saved to be together, and fun smiles on everyones faces! I would love one of these!

    I’m so sorry! Some days, I hate computers. 😉 I tested the GN- code, and it’s working fine right now. However, I wonder if you have a caching issue, which means your computer remembered my page the way it used to be before the code got fixed? You have to use the “add to cart” button on the page here, NOT the “buy now” button in the sidebar. That’s the only way to enter the code. If you get an error again, go ahead and email me at kitchenstew at gmail.com and we’ll work something out – my apologies again for the hassle! I’m honored you’re still trying to buy my book, truly.

    Just bought this great book!!!

    Do you think the protein bars could be made RAW, or at least dehydrated? My oven goes down to 145 degrees (though i hope a dehydrator is in my future!). They look marvelous, & i have some raw cocoa in my pantry!

    Virginia,
    I had another person ask me that via email, and I have to say I’ve never tried it (but it’s going on my list). I absolutely understand wanting to keep those enzymes alive. I don’t think just mooshing everything together would work, but I bet doing a low temp would be no problem. It you try it, it would be lovely if you’d let me know at what temp and how long it took. It’s on my “someday” list! Thank you much for your purchase! :) Katie

    Virginia,
    “Someday” came! I tried dehydrating the protein bars (the ones that call for baking at 250 for an hour, right?) at about 135F for 24-36 hours. They are EXCELLENT, better than in the oven. I’m a fan! I’m sure your oven at 145 would do a great job, maybe 18 hours or so? I just stopped when they held together well enough to cut.

    Enjoy!
    :) Katie

    Virginia Reply:

    Hi Katie!
    I forgot to post, but I did try them – I was impatient, so I smooshed them into a pan and dehydrated in my oven (145 is my lowest temp) for only 2-3 hours. They were delicious!! Soft, yummy. Do they get crispy if left in longer?

    Anyway, they DISAPPEARED at my Holistic Moms Network meeting and I had many recipe requests, so I plugged your ebook :)

    Thanks so much!

    Can anyone tell me if these recipes are gluten free? We are all GF in this house so while I want the book if the recipes aren’t GF it does me no good.

    Katie,
    At least half the recipes are GF, including all 14 Larabar variations. An SCD diet blogger will be reviewing it at some point, so I’ll be sure to link to her notes when that time comes. Good question!

    Hello! I would *really* like to purchase the ebook, but I have one question. This might be dumb, but since I’ve never bought an ebook before, do I have to have a Kindle to be able to read it? Will it work in another regular computer program?

    I would hate to purchase it and then not be able to use it!

    Thanks,
    Jessica

    Jessica,
    Not a dumb question at all – you are not the only one wondering this. An eBook (at least this one) can be read in Adobe reader, which is a free download if you don’t already have it. It will come as a PDF file. I think you can even open it in a browser. If you were shooting for the sale and missed it because I didn’t reply quickly, shoot me an email and I’ll help you out. 😉 Katie

    I tried to order, filled out the paypal info , mastercard # and the password but couldn’t continue. Kept telling me I needed the correct password???

    How can I order your book? I am excited to try out the recipes. At this point I find that, for my children, snacks are the hardest to eat healthily. I’m hoping this will help.

    Tracy,
    It sounds like maybe you forgot your Paypal password…is there a place to have Paypal email it to you? Otherwise, dash me an email for special instructions. Thanks! :) Katie

    Tracey,
    I don’t see an order with this email address; does that mean it didn’t work? If you need help, email me – kitchenstew at gmail.com

    Hello,
    I ordered and paid for your ebook, but I can’t figure out how to get access it. Where do I go now to find it? Sorry for the dumb question, but I’m on my iPhone because our computer got a nasty virus and I can’t seem to figure out where to find the ebook now. Thanks so much.

    I’m jumping in because I have an iPhone…

    When your order is complete (by submitting payment via paypal), a link for the book will be emailed to you. You have a limited amount of click before the link expires. 5?

    Once in your mail, you’ll want to save somewhere. Do you have MobileMe or something like that? If not, you’ll need a computer to save the doc. I saved my PDF to my Google Docs and can view it easily on my iphone.

    Thank you for a wonderful book, the granola bars are cooling in the pan as I write.

    I had to laugh at your comment on the Take Along Spelt Biscuit page about historical figures taking biscuits. I live in New Zealand and for us a biscuit is your cookie and I think our “english muffin” is your biscuit, so I have always had to adjust my thinking when searching for a “biscuit” recipe.
