Nut-free, easy, healthy, kid friendly snacks recipe.

Ever feel guilty for handing out store-bought granola bars to your kids when they’re hungry? I do! I know there are some healthier options now but in a sea of different types of granola bars, I get overwhelmed and buy the brand that I know.

I don’t even want to look at the ingredient list as I know sugar is probably at the top of the list, plus some other unpronounceable ingredient.

But they are just so handy! Pre-packaged and all. My kids are always hungry and in a pinch, it’s just so easy to grab something from the pantry that is ready to go.

Another tricky thing is the school will only accept snacks that are nut-free, so that really limited my choices.

A few weekends ago,  I came across a sampling station at our local grocery store. They were handing out these little balls of snacks that looked so healthy and tasted very delicious. When I bought the ingredients home and tried to make it myself, it was super crumbly and I had a hard time making them into balls or squares for the kids.

After tweaking the recipe a few times, I think I’ve got it. My kids loved it. My husband will now snack on them too. I have also added them to my kids’ lunches.

The best part, you can easily substitute the ingredients for something else.

By the way, these are gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free. Try it and let me know how you like them!

    1. Hey Melanie! I guess even though oats themselves are gluten-free, they are often contaminated at the processing facilities. Good to know! I will add that in the recipe as a reminder! 🙂
