Just found Simply Balanced apple cinnamon muesli at target. D eats it hot or cold or by the handfuls. She's sick of granola but this is a much lighter texture and has 250 calories per HALF cup. I add more pecans to it.

They are made from pork rind - they are a popular pub snack in the UK. I get them in the supermarket - not sure if you can find them in other countries, though!

Just wanted to mention what has been working for us for a quick, portable snack:

Mix 1 TBL canola oil into just under 1/2 cup applesauce.  I made it and took it to work before I dared include it in E's school lunch because I was afraid it would separate and not look appetizing/normal to her.  I put it in a tupperware and left it in the fridge all day at work.  At the end of the day it was still just like when I put it in the tupperware. So I can put one in her lunch without worry. 

Also, she eats a mid-morning snack in the classroom so it needs to be very clean, quick, easy so it does not distract E or the other kids too much from class.  I have loved using re-fillable pouches she can "drink" from -- so far I have put in the applesauce/canola mix. Each pouch holds about 1/2 cup -- so over 200 calories of that mixture.  I've been filling several at once and keeping them in the fridge for a go-to for snacks or anytime I can sneak one in.  

I plan to try pudding/oil and yogurt/oil -- does anyone know if the pudding or yogurt and canola will separate, or will it be like the applesauce and keep mixed in fairly well for a day??  If no one posts with experience, I'll post back once I've experimented.

Here is a link to the refillable pouches.  Been using them a week now and have had no leakage, and they seem to clean well and are user-friendly for the filler and the eater.  I hope it is okay to post the link??

I have never tried pudding with oil but I make instant pudding all the time with one cup of HWC and one cup of whole milk. Blend well and it does not separate or get watery for several days in the refrigerator. Top with whipped cream!

Somewhere on here I read to add a little salt when adding oil to keep it from separating. I haven't tried that yet. Oil stirs well into hummus and makes another great snack with crackers.

What works well also for yogurt is to mix the oil into granola first. The granola soaks it all up. We did not have any issues with oil separating in yogurt or pudding.

Had success with this recipe today:
Scones (sweet)
225g self raising flour
40g butter
150ml double cream
Pinch of salt
1.5 tablespoons of caster sugar

Rub the butter and flour together. Using a knife stir in sugar, salt (if liked you can also add dried fruit at this point) and then double cream. Bring together to make a dough. If the mixture is too crumbly add more double cream - should be quite a sticky dough. Shape into 6 round balls and then slightly flatten. Brush tops with milk and then bake near the top of the oven for 12-15 minutes at 200 degrees centigrade.

Got 1 down him with butter, jam and clotted cream.

I just realized I never posted my granola and granola bar recipes.. I know the granola by heart so I will come back later and post the granola bar recipe.

Granola

4 cups oats
2 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup maple syrup (use the real stuff - pancake syrup doesn't work as well)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
cinnamon

1 or more cups chopped nuts - whatever you like, we use unsalted cashews, almonds and pecans - 

1/2 to 1 cup dried fruit - again whatever you like, our standby is Craisins and dried blueberries

Preheat oven to  325.  Dump the oats, coconut, and nuts in a large bowl, Mix your liquids in a measuring cup and pour over. Mix well.  Spread mixture in a deep baking sheet.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.  Bake approx 40 minutes depending how crunchy you want it.  I stir about half way through.  When done, dump into container or bowl and mix in the dried fruit.  

I will try putting this into an app to see what a basic calorie count is, but you can add more nuts, etc to pump it up if need be.  Serve with whole milk yogurt

If you already bake your own bread, this makes a lovely loaf and works for sandwiches and toast:
1.5 tsp yeast
400g strong White bread flour
4 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp double cream
120g butter
180mls warm water
2 eggs, beaten
Put the ingredients in the loaf pan of the bread maker in that order. My bread maker has a setting for brioche which is no 10. It's a 3.30hr program, which is rest, 30 mins knead 25-45 mins, rise ,1 hr 25 mins, bake 50 mins

Ok, back with granola bars..

3 cups quick cooking oats
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 TB butter, melted
1 cup shredded coconut

1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup mini choc chips, mini m&ms, etc
1/2 cup dried fruit

Preheat oven to 350 (175-180C).  Lightly grease 9x13 pan.

Mix everything together in large bowl. Press evenly into pan.  (my tip is to press using wax paper to keep it from sticking to you.)

Bake for 20-25 min depending how crunchy you like them. Lightly browned at edges will give you chewy bars.  I score them into bars when they come out and then let cool for  a while before cutting completely through.

Use whatever combos you like. Dried apricot and choc chip is one I enjoy a lot.

Flapjack recipe (good one for the suspicious child who dislikes bits)
110g soft brown sugar
110g butter
1 tbspn golden syrup
175g porridge oats (whole (rolled) oats work well)
3/4 cup of chopped mixed nuts (these came ready chopped from the supermarket - key is that they need to be smaller than the oat flakes)

Spray or line a 20cm square baking tin. Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan gently. Take off the heat and stir in the nuts and oats until throughly coated. Press into the tin, bake in the centre of the oven for 45 minutes at 150 centigrade. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then score into bars. Leave in the tin until completly cool and then they will snap on your score lines. Store in a tin. Makes quite a crunchy not cakey flapjack. And the nuts are completly camouflaged.

I just wanted to add that those tiny cups of bread sticks with Nutella are almost 300 calories each.  However, the stupid cup has the calorie and fat count on them so if you have a label reader you may need to switch it out.  I will add that Nutella is awesome!

Thank you for posting this.  I struggle with feeding a variety of snacks for my already picky AN daughter.  We are working on trying to expand her palette by incorporating new things but it is so hard when they are picky to begin with.  I am thankful that she is gaining in Phase 1 but we are still a way off from WR.  Are there other threads on this forum that have other meal/snack options also?  We tend to follow a fairly healthy diet in our home (prior to ED) due to heart disease and diabetes in our family history which makes giving her cakes, cookies, ice cream even more challenging because it's just not what we'd do before.  Any one else struggle with this?

aboncosk,  Yes we are that kind of family too.  Giving my D several cookies would not have been our "normal".  We only had desert for special occasions too. 

A few swaps:
Crackers can have just as many or more calories as some cookies!  Ritz type butter crackers are the best!
My D never likes mayonnaise so I would spread her sandwich bread with hummus (with some canola oil stirred in).
Granola is very high calorie and high fat, more than most basic cold cereals.
Instant oatmeal made with a HWC and milk instead of water like the package says.  Add some granola for crunch!
If your D is not allergic to nuts, put them in anything you serve, like oatmeal or yogurt or trail mix.
I was able to give my D muffins and they can really pack a calorific punch!  The large ones from the store can by 500 to 600 calories each.  If you make them yourself, just swap some ingredients like use HWC and use more oil.
Yogurt covered pretzels.
Dried banana chips.
Quiches are really high in calories.  Especially the store bought ones.   
Trader Joe stores has a premade hamburger patty that is very high in fat and calories.  
Avocados on everything- sliced on sandwiches and eggs or make your own guacamole and serve with chips or crackers.

Enjoy [smile]

Thank you iHateED!  Great ideas.  I feel like I have a toddler all over again as far as trying to get her to eat new things.  It's a combination of the ED and pickiness (but not an ARFID diagnosis).  I will keep pushing new things and see how else I can make her meals/snacks more calorie dense and nutritious.
