There are so many store-bought foods you can easily make at home and this collection is just a start! Making things from scratch at home versus buying them at the store does many things: cuts down on added sugar and fats, contains less preservatives and less sodium.
While making things from scratch is not always the best option especially if you are trying to save time sometimes it’s just fun! Kids especially will love to help make a lot of these items that can be purchased premade.
Some of these may even save you some money! Take a look to see which foods we like to make at home (not all the time).
Super simple Homemade Slice and Bake Sugar Cookies can be baked plain, with sprinkles or decorated with icing! The possibilities are endless. Don't want to slice and bake? Chill the dough and roll it out and cut into desired shapes.
These no bake chocolate peanut butter protein bars are super easy to make and use dates for sweetness.
