This post was created in partnership with The Quaker Oats Company. As always, all opinions are my own and I appreciate your support!

There’s something about arranging different foods on a board that just makes them extra fun to eat, don’t you think?! There are so many ways to create one and there are no limits when it comes to what you can add! 

My rule of thumb when making a snack board is making sure it contains things that are both sweet and salty — I find that most satisfying!

Anatomy of a Snack Board 

I ensure what I snack on contains protein, fat and carbs. A snack board is a great way to make sure you’ll get some of each! 

Add a variety of fruits and veggies for fiber, these Quaker Rice Snacks for whole grains, and nuts and seeds, hummus and nut butter for plant-based protein.

Quaker Rice Snacks, popped, never fried, can satisfy any taste. There’s definitely a flavor for every mood and I’m currently loving the Buffalo Ranch, Cheddar and Apple Cinnamon flavors (especially paired with apple slices and almond butter!). 

They’re gluten free, made with 10-14 grams of whole grains per serving, and do not contain high-fructose corn syrup. 

Here are some of my favorite ways to pair the different flavors of Quaker rice crisps:

  • Apple cinnamon flavor rice crisps with apple slices and almond butter
  • Buffalo ranch flavor rice crisps with carrots and hummus
  • Cheddar flavor rice crisps on top of a salad for a crunch 
  • Sweet and spicy flavor rice crisps dipped in guacamole

In addition to snacks like these, I always have a canister of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats in my pantry that I can use for breakfast and beyond. 

Oats are like a blank canvas that you can add more flavor and nutrition to. A ½ cup serving of oats serves as a good source of fiber. I love thinking of fun ways to spice them up based on the time of year!
