Chocolate Caramel Matzah “Crack”ersBaking this addicting chocolatey caramel dessert with the kids is our family’s yearly Passover tradition, and trust me, you want in!! Using whole wheat matzah (you can sub with saltine-type crackers if not going the matzah route) and coconut sugar to make it a bit healthier, these crackers are crunchy, sweet, and delicious.
Chocolate Hamantaschen🔺These triangular stuffed cookies are for the Jewish holiday Purim, and many believe they resemble the 3-cornered hat that the evil Haman wore. ❌Supposedly, taking a bite out of the cookie is in defiance of bowing down to Haman and preventing him from carrying out his evil plan. 🧺 On Purim, we also make baskets each year with the kids, filled with candy and hamantashen cookies. We give the baskets out to our neighbors and friends to ensure that everyone has enough food for the Purim feast held later in the day, and to increase love and friendship.
Apple Ring MasksThe Jewish holiday of Purim, the Festival of Masks, starts next week, and we’re getting holiday ready with a festive take on our apple slice “donuts”. 🎭 The kids had so much fun putting their creativity to the test as they dipped and decorated their apple slice masks with all the dye-free candy we had in our cabinet. Even if you don’t celebrate Purim, save these apple masks down in your bookmarks because they are perfect for Mardi Gras or even just a fun snack activity.
Fruit DreidelsThese fruit dreidels are a fun snacktivity for children to celebrate the Festival of Lights. With only three ingredients needed, this snack can be made gluten free and vegan. Happy Chanukah to all who celebrate!
Homemade Blender HummusCreamy and protein-rich, our homemade hummus is made with simple ingredients and comes together in a blender making cleanup a cinch! With canned chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and spices, this easy dip will become your new favorite go-to snack!
Sufganiyot MuffinsWith Chanukah finally here, we baked these “healthified” sufganiyot muffins. Generally, we eat fried jelly donuts stuffed with strawberry jelly on this holiday, so in order to get that same jelly-donut feel, we baked vanilla-maple muffins stuffed with naturally sweetened strawberry preserves. These gluten-free muffins are so unbelievably moist and dusted with cinnamon to give them a warm winter feel.
Cauliflower Latkes (Pancakes)These cauliflower latkes are a great alternative to traditional Chanukah potato latkes! Loaded with fiber and B-vitamins from the cauliflower and high in protein from the chickpea crumbs, this is a lighter version of the classic that's also kid-friendly.
