20 easy nut-free snack recipes your kids will love

Cityline | posted Thursday, Sep 3rd, 2015

Need some new snack ideas for the school year? We’ve rounded up our favourite recipes that fit perfectly into lunch boxes, and best of all, they’re all school-safe and nut-free!

Pina-Colada-MuffinsMuffins and banana bread are a perfect afternoon snack, or an on-the-go breakfast! We love these tropical pina colada muffins, these hearty raspberry oat bran muffins, and these yummy blueberry-lemon streusel crunch muffins which are a delicious twist on a classic. If you’re a banana bread fan, try this super healthy (and easy!) spelt and chocolate banana bread.

Want to sneak a few more fruits & veggies into your kids’ lunch? We love these risotto, spinach and kale cakes and these three fresh fruit salsas.

Granola bars are easy to pick up at the grocery store, but if you make them at home they’ll be cheaper, healthier, and even more delicious! You can also personalize the ingredients to match your child’s favourite flavours. For a sweet and salty mix, try these chocolate-pretzel granola bars! For something more traditional, we love these cranberry granola balls. And if you need a boost of energy, these power crisp treats will do the trick.

mar4-chickpeasLooking for a bit of crunch, without all the fat and salt of potato chips? Try these sweet and spicy maple-cinnamon roasted chickpeas or apple chips!

Cookies are always a popular snack choice for kids of any age (and adults, too)! If you don’t have any dietary concerns to consider, try our ultimate chocolate chip cookie or our classic oatmeal raisin cookie. Can’t eat gluten? Try our gluten-free crispy and chewy chocolate chip cookies!

Dips are a great way to get your kids to eat their veggies! Cut up their favourite crudités (or try our easy buttery edamame!) and pair them with our creamy roasted sweet potato & white bean dip, our Mexican-inspired black bean and sweet corn guacamole dip, or our homemade hummus with roasted red peppers.
