I remember the days when it seemed like healthy recipes for snacks were the holy grail of motherhood in the kitchen.
Healthy Recipes for Snacks
That was when I was feeding hoards of hungry snackers, creating everything from low carb cookies, to tasty gluten free pizza muffins, to a healthy apple sauce recipe and much more.
Easy Recipes for Snacks
Walking down memory lane, I recall all of the easy recipes for snacks I made for the boys when they were little.
The recipes were so simple, and they loved helping me out in the kitchen.
Children and Diet Restrictions
But wait, why all the fuss about healthy recipes?
It all began with my older son. You see, diet restrictions for children can be challenging, and my kiddo was diagnosed with celiac disease when he was only 3 years old.
In turn, I made it my mission to create the best healthy treats so that he would feel like a “normal” kid. Now he’s 24 years old and crushes it in the kitchen.
Snacks That Are Easy to Make
All of these treats are easy to make and both gluten free and grain free. For those of you dealing with additional allergies, many are nut free and egg free as well.
I hope you find your new favorite snack here!
