Can you smell it in the air? The fresh aroma of study binders, newly sharpened pencils, and multi-scented erasers. It’s already time for back-to-school shopping, first-day-of-school photos, and — most importantly — long lists of snacking go-tos and must-haves. Whether you’re a hungry high schooler, a poor college student, or a mom with munchie kiddos, these recipes are quick, delicious, and can be made by almost anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Get ready to put those pens to good use. Take notes, make changes, and create these delights or twist them into your versions. Either way, you’ll be satisfied, stuffed, and ready to put those fueled-up brains to work.

And if you think these snacks take hours to prepare, they don’t. Some can be made in minutes or can be part of your Sunday meal-prep.
