Jack O’Lantern Apple PopsIt’s almost spooky season and we’re rounding up our favorite Halloween treats! These apple pops are made with just five ingredients: apples, white chocolate, plant-based natural orange food color, semi-sweet chocolate, and dye-free candy for the green stem. It’s a fun after-school treat and a great hands-on activity for the kids to get creative!
Rice Crispy FootballsLet’s level up football season with these no-bake chocolate rice crispy treats! We used almond butter instead of marshmallows to give it a bit of creamy and a bit of crunchy with the brown rice crisp cereal. Trust me, you don’t want to pass on this one!
Apple Pie SmoothieNothing says autumn more than sweet apples and the warm flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. 🥧 This smoothie comes together in minutes, contains nutritious apples and bananas, whole grain oats, and is naturally sweetened by dates!
Apple NachosAn easy way to spice up snack time for the kids is to change the way a typical snack is presented. Watch as we level up our apples and peanut butter while getting the kids to eat superfood hemp seeds as well as vitamin rich pumpkin & sunflower seeds 😉
Autumn Chocolate BarkLet’s make some seasonal chocolate bark and recreate all the colors of autumn! Made with white chocolate and plant-based dye-free color, these chocolates are a sweet treat without all the junk artificial food coloring. Want in on a secret for how we got those golden hues? It’s just some nutrient dense turmeric! We’re all for coloring our foods with nature’s rainbow of colors. Ditch the Red40 (and every other number) and make these instead!
Smore’s Energy BitesThese 𝒏𝒐-𝒃𝒂𝒌𝒆 bliss balls are great for lunchboxes, make ahead snacks, or on-the-go treats. We love storing them in the freezer so they’re always ready for those moments when my kids are “staaaarving” aka 5 min after they had a meal 🙄 . They're everything you want from a fire-pit s’mores but without all the prep, hassle, and smokey scent that just won’t leave your clothes 🫤. These bliss balls are made with whole grain oats and are sweetened naturally by pure maple syrup.
Apple Slice “Donuts”If you’re looking for a wonderful seasonal food activity to do with the kids, I highly recommend these apple "donuts"! Both Liv and Sawyer had the best time painting and decorating their apple slices. It’s great for fine motor skills and sparks creativity. All you need is 2 apples, a cup of Greek yogurt (nondairy yogurt works great too if vegan!) and 2 starter spoons to act as their paint brushes. (Also note that the yogurt can easily be replaced with chocolate spread, peanut butter, or hazelnut spread. The options are endless!) Fill some bowls with different toppings, and let their imagination take care of the rest!
Spiced Apple Granola CupsLet’s get all the Autumn feels together with these no-bake breakfast treats. 🍂 Crunchy granola combined with creamy nut butter forms our addicting cup’s base. Once frozen, we fill it with tart Greek yogurt topped with cinnamon coated cooked apples and a drizzle of sweet honey or pure maple syrup.
Vegan Gummy BearsThese 4-ingredient plant-based rainbow gummies are about to become your newest addiction. Made with fruit and no artificial colors or refined sugars, these are a clean treat that I’m happy to give my kids. The combinations are endless depending on what fruits and juices you use. For extra sweetness, try adding pure maple syrup or honey. To make it plant-based, we used agar powder in place of gelatin for our gummies. Agar powder is derived from seaweed and a great source of iron, fiber, and zinc.
Hungry Caterpillar Snack BoardBack to school season is upon us and we're celebrating with a yummy after-school snack! 🐛 All you need are green apples, a strawberry, raisins, blueberries, popcorn and cheddar balls.
Chocolate Eclair PopsThese copy-cat ice cream popsicles from my childhood have a new fresh and cleaner look! Kick that artificial flavor and corn syrup to the curb (alongside the other 35+ ingredients… yup, I counted) and make these instead! Made with coconut milk, cashews, and cocoa powder as the base, we used ingredients even my 5 year old could understand. Trust me, you need to try these!
Chia JamThis 3- ingredient jam is the perfect recipe for back to school! Made with just berries, chia seeds, and optional pure maple syrup/honey, this lunch comes together within minutes (and even my 5 year old can put it together himself!). We love making homemade jam because it’s made with chia seeds which are a great source of fiber and minerals and contains way less sugar than store-bought.
