Healthy (and delicious!) versions of your favorite childhood treats!

WReal Snacksho doesn't remember that joyful feeling we experienced as a child opening a fresh Twinkie, finishing off a circus train shaped box of animal crackers or licking your fingers to get the last little bits in a bag of Corn Nuts. Those special snacks always inspire a nostalgic feeling for days past, and, unfortunately, remind us of how lacking in nutrition our treats really were.

Do you want to relive your childhood memories without loading up on white flour, hydrogenated fat, and food coloring? Check out the new cookbook Real Snacks by Lara Ferroni which will help  you make your favorite treats without all the junk.

Flipping through the book is a walk down memory lane in and of itself, but once you realize that you can actually create things like Hostess Cupcakes, Nilla Wafers and Ritz Crackers in your own kitchen, the reminiscing quickly turns into salivating! Each recipe in the book includes a gluten-free and vegan option as well, so everyone can have a bite!

If you're feeling nostalgic, reserve your copy of this fun and delicious new cookbook from your local Santa Clara County Library District branch today. Happy snacking!
