Historically, I’ve always leaned towards having a sweet tooth. However, as life goes on, I seem to be leaning towards salty a bit more. What gives? Is this was happens once someone they get past their 30th year of life?

Anyways, I wanted to showcase two snack recipes that I’ve been loving recently that are both sweet and salty. They are both super easy to make….like super easy. One is a 5 Minute Microwave Mug Cinnamon Roll (what?!) and the other are they delicious High Protein & High Fibre Garlic Crackers. 

Let me know which one wins the “Snack-off” for you!
