Quick, easy granola bars.
Playgroup Granola Bars
My girlfriend brought these granola bars over for a playgroup one morning and ever since they've been a staple! My son requests them almost daily so I usually triple the recipe and make 2 trays so we have plenty on hand.Sponsored By [object Object]
Extra Easy Hummus
Tahini-free hummus that only takes minutes, and is a favorite with my kids.
Whole Wheat Pumpkin-Applesauce Muffins
This is a great recipe for those times when you have half a can of pumpkin left over. The muffins taste great right from the oven, but are even better the next day—if they last that long! Kids love them and it's a good way to sneak fruits, veggies, and fiber into their diets.
Made these for my daughter one day. She likes them more than store-bought ones, and I like knowing what she's eating.
Carrot Pulp Muffins
Looking at the mound of carrot pulp from my juicer and then at my 2-1/2-year-old daughter (who loves bread) inspired me to experiment... This muffin is dense, healthy, and can be tweaked to suit your tastes. As is, it is not sweet, but you could certainly add mashed ripe banana or pineapple. Once out of the oven, sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar while they are still hot.
A super fun and easy way to serve the usual tuna fish. Just wrap in a tortilla! My kids have been loving these for years, as I did when I was a kid. Awesome for lunch boxes, just wrap in plastic wrap or foil. The kids love calling them 'Tor-tunas'!
Perfect Apple Chips
Perfect snack chips: no fat, low sugar. You can also sprinkle these with curry powder for a different flavor.
Light Fruit and Nut Granola
A delicious granola without the fat can be made with spelt, flax seeds, and pecans!
Pumpkin Almond Joy Bites
A no-bake snack bite made with almond butter and oats blended with winter spices. A healthy snack solution that will save you time and money!
Berry Fruit Salad
Mixture of different delicious berries.
Peanut Butter and Apple Sandwich
My kids love to spread peanut butter on their apples, so one day I thought I would take a favorite of theirs and just tweak it a little bit....voila, a peanut butter and apple sandwich. PB and J can get boring after a while and this provides a healthy alternative.
No-Bake Raspberry Peanut Butter Granola Bars
Deliciously gooey raspberry peanut butter granola bars made with fresh raspberries, peanut butter, oats, and chia seeds. A healthy homemade no-bake snack that takes just 5 minutes to make! Store in a container in the freezer for up to 1 week.
Three Ingredient Carrot Slaw
This recipe will put some fresh vegetables on your table in almost no time at all! My kids love it too. All the ingredients keep very well, so it's pantry-friendly. I keep my sunflower seeds in the freezer, and they stay fresh a long time.
Merrick's PBJ n' Banana Burritos
A quick n' healthy after school snack that kids can make on their own. Invented by my 8-year old son, Merrick. Don't forget a napkin cuz it is very, very sticky and yummy.
Vegan Spinach Bites
Spinach bites that are allergen-friendly for my little guys. Flour keeps them from sticking and gives them a great crust on the outside. Baking dries up the spinach filling and prevents it from being too gooey.
Toasted Coconut Granola Bars
I finally found the ultimate granola bar! After lots of tweaking and experimenting, I feel this is the best version yet. Everyone in my family, from ages 2 to 78, loves them!
Jumbo Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins
I received free blueberries recently. I admit I never actually tasted a real one before. Always the boxed muffin kind. I loved them. Recently switched to whole wheat, so I wanted to try a new muffin recipe out. This is the one that not only turned out great, but filling as well. When I was eating it, I was craving eggs. Next time I will have to remember to throw in a fried egg or two on the side. I made 6 jumbo muffins.
So-Cal University Girl's Granola Bars
I adapted a few granola bars to fit my needs as a short-on-cash college kid. They're easy to adapt to what you have in your pantry and perfect to store individually for a healthy grab-and-go snack! Using dried cherries gives the bars a tarty edge! I recommend cutting bars and storing in refrigerator wrapped individually for grab-and-go snacking.
No-Bake Energy Bars
This is just a quick recipe to make some energy bars without all the added preservatives and other additives. Goes together quickly and it's fun for the kids to help with.
Flourless Spiced Pumpkin Muffin Bites
Bite-sized, kid-friendly, healthy snack.
Honey Spiced Granola Bars
A recipe I twiddled and tweaked to come up with. It has a distinct taste of honey, and the spices are allowed to shine through. Sometimes, I add some cocoa powder for that subtle taste. Hope you like this, its one of the first recipes I managed to really tweak up nicely.
Creamy Apple Dip
I created this simple recipe when I had an abundance of apples in my house, and a taste for peanut butter. Everyone who tries it can't believe how simple it is.
A cute little snack for a kid's birthday or in the afternoon during a play date. I feel whenever I present my kids food in a fun and cute way, they eat whatever I give them.
