Après Ski Snacks

Après Ski Snacks

Last winter, my group of friends got really into cross country skiing. We mostly went to Westmount Golf Course (which is open to the public in the winter!) but this winter, we're hoping to branch out to other parks and conservation areas. If you have any recommendations, send them my way!

One of my favourite things about cross country skiing is the aprės drinks and snacks enjoyed outdoors. Read on for recipe recommendations and ideas!

Rosemary Paprika Cashews:

  • 1 cup of raw cashews
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • Pinch of Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Spread cashews out on cookie sheet. Roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven, flip cashews around and roast for an additional 2-5 minutes until cashews have a golden colour on their edges. Let cool. Pack in individual containers for your ski-people.

 

Banana Bread:

Banana bread is a fabulous après snack, especially with chocolate chips! And a great way to use up any frozen bananas you might have in your freezer.
