Mommy & Me Picnic

by Lynn Lilly, Mar 13 2018

The weather in Atlanta is a rollercoaster of emotions! Last month it was 80 degrees and then earlier this week it was 30 but we finally got a break from the cold spell for a mommy and me picnic with my sweet baby Lily, best friend Jen, and her girls! This is my third picnic for my picnicmaster challenge from Crunchmaster® . For this picnic, we kept it simple and hung out by Jen's pool and to just enjoy time together with the girls.

Throughout my journey to becoming a picnicmaster I realized the three most important things for hosting a good picnic:

  • Nourishing foods are the key (Crunchmaster®  is a perfect choice)
  • Good company makes the picnic (friends and pups are the best)
  • Keep the recipes and snacks simple (easy prep and clean up)

The menu for this picnic was so simple but so good! 

Homemade Granola:

Homemade Granola


  • 1 cup of old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup of crushed Crunchmaster®  Original Crackers
  • 3/4 cup of marshmallows
  • 2/3 cup of dark chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup of dried cranberries
  • 5 tbsp of organic honey
  • 1.5 ounces of Sunbutter (great for kids that have peanut allergies)


Combine ingredients in a bowl until thoroughly sticky. Spread on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Spread it, but keep it semi-packed together. Toast in the oven at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until lightly toasted. Let it cool then cut or break apart.

Sunbutter Sandwiches:

I love Sunbutter as a great alternative to peanut butter since so many kids have peanut allergies. I served a dollop of Sunbutter between two Crunchmaster®  Sea Salt Crackers and it was a great snack for Jen's daughter Sophia who was is 2.

Today was so much fun! I cherish the moments and memories I am making with my daughter and my best friend! I can't believe Lily is already four months old! Every day I just can't believe how lucky I am to be her mom!

In full disclosure, this post is part of a paid campaign for Crunchmaster® but all ideas, recipes are my own. I have been a long time Crunchmaster eater and love these crackers even before I started working with them!
