Zombie FingersAs Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, we go all out with even the simplest of snacks. Itโ€™s important for me that our kids have a healthy relationship with food, so I find itโ€™s always easy to get them to eat healthy if I make it fun in the kitchen. These snacks take just a few minutes to assemble, are super simple, and get Liv & Sawyer excited for snack time (and Halloween!!).
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+ ingredientsโ€ฆ 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!
PB&J CupsThese no-bake mini bites are about to become your new favorite indulgent snack. Made with white chocolate, peanut butter, and homemade chia jam, these are a fun take on the classic peanut butter and jelly combo. My kids love these because everything is more fun in bite size, and I love that their snack has protein from peanut butter and fiber from chia seeds.
Seashore Chocolate BarkWhile in Hawaii, we snorkeled with sea turtles and saw magnificent fish of every color in the rainbow, and we knew we had to recreate that image with a fun snack activity! Made with white chocolate, plant-based food color, and some crushed graham crackers, we brought some aloha back with us to NY!
Carrot Cake PopsDuring the summer months I make an extra effort to create all the frozen treats so my kids stay hydrated. As a mom, itโ€™s also my secret guilty pleasure to add veggies to their snacks whenever I can ๐Ÿ˜. My 7 year old self-proclaimed carrot hater of a daughter will not eat a raw carrot but sheโ€™s obsessed with these carrot cake pops. Is it the creamy indulgent filling? Is it the graham cracker crusted white chocolate coating? Try them out and see for yourself!
Beach Ball Cake PopsSummerโ€™s in full swing and weโ€™re celebrating at the beach! While in SoCal and Hawaii, weโ€™re constantly next to the sand and ocean, so we had to make cake pops to match our vibes. โ›ฑ๏ธ These cake pops are made with a gluten-free mix to make things super easy. We then tossed in some clean frosting, covered in white chocolate, and decorated with dye-free sanding sugar. My kids had fun rolling the cake pops and decoratingโ€ฆ such a fun way to get the kids cookin in the kitchen!
Chocolate Yogurt ClustersThese no-bake frozen yogurt treats are about to become your new favorite snack! Made with wholesome yogurt, fresh fruit, and pure maple syrup or honey, these frozen yogurt treats are then dipped in sweet white chocolate, making it the perfect red, white, and blue dessert this Fourth of July!
No-Bake Easter Egg NestsThese treats taste like oatmeal raisin cookies and are naturally sweetened by dates! We used coconut flour, making it a grain free and gluten free treat. Oh, and for all those celebrating Passover, this works for that holiday too (as long as peanut butter is part of your tradition)! Cookies bring us all togetherโœŒ๏ธ
Gingerbread Energy Bitesโ€˜Tis the season for all things sprinkled with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves! These no-bake energy bites taste like gingerbread cookies and pumpkin pie had a baby and are great for meal prep and perfect size for lunchboxes.
No-Bake Cereal BarsWith the school year quickly approaching, Iโ€™ve been compiling a list of quick + easy breakfast ideas we can grab and go. Made with just ๐“ฏ๐“ธ๐“พ๐“ป ingredients, these cereal bars are a kid-friendly breakfast that are super versatile and great for meal prep. Unlike many store-bought cereal bars, these are made with ingredients you can actually pronounce and are a good source of fiber, protein, and healthy fats.
