cinnamon honey whole wheat bread with Nutella~ an after school snack (bread machine recipe)

recipe from Betty Crocker's Best Bread Machine Cookbook

After school snack is a never ending battle in our house!  Riley gets off the bus at 4:00 in the afternoon and is STARVING!  She will gladly eat a bowl of strawberries, an apple or any other fruit I offer her, but she always wants something else.  It's so close to dinner, I can't bring myself to give her the cookies, crackers or snack foods she asks begs for.  Popcorn, yogurt, carrot sticks are great options but don't quite satisfy her treat craving!

This bread machine recipe for cinnamon honey whole wheat bread is a healthy snack option that kids will consider a "treat" when you spread a little bit of Nutella on a slice of it!  If you're not familiar with it, Nutella is a hazelnut spread made with skim milk and cocoa.  The girls love it!  Finally, I have won the snack battle (at least for this week).

*I use cookie cutters to cut out fun shapes! It's fun and makes their snack extra special!
