Healthy Recipes for Students on the Go!

With summer slowly ruling around the corner, students are anxious for the fun gatherings and parties. But, are chips and cookies always the healthiest alternative to eat for a munch? Of course the students could place out a veggie tray, but we all know that no one will eat that. After researching, I found a unique twist for a snack. Look at and for more inspiring twists on food. Stayed tune for this delicious recipe called “Popcorn Balls.”


1 tablespoon of oil (Canola)
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons unpopped popcorn kernels
1 cup of “Cheerios” (Honey-Nut or Original)
2 ¼ cups of mini marshmallows
1 ounce pretzels, broken (Pretzel Sticks work the best)
¼ cup of dry-roasted peanuts (Chopped and Salted for the best flavor)

Heat the oven with the oil on medium-high heat. Use a pan. Then, add the kernels. Cook on the pan covered for about 4 minutes. Shake the pan frequently for a better effect. When popping starts to slow down, remove the pan from the heat. Let it stand for about 1-2 minutes. After that, melt butter over low heat on another pan. Add the marshmallows and cook for two minutes. Remove from the heat. then at the popcorn mixture and all of the ingredients not used. Let that sit for 2 minutes. To include, form the mixture into small 3 inch balls. This recipe makes about 10 balls. Finally, let cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
