You know those cream cheese spreads you can buy at the store? You can easily make your own at home, which is probably cheaper (although I haven’t done a price comparison), and it can be healthier too! Here’s an easy recipe for honey pecan spread.
- 1 package cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup pecans chopped
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix it all with a hand mixer and wa-la! You can spread it on a toasty whole wheat bagel or dip your apple slices in it! And since you’re making this at home, you can switch it up and make it other ways too, try chopped walnuts or use brown sugar or maple syrup to sweeten it. If you’re trying to cut back on fat, you can even use low-fat cream cheese.
