25 Homemade Popsicle Recipes (Gluten-Free)

I recently posted about our summer love affair with ice cream over on my Instagram account. When the warm weather hits, my kids LOVE cool treats. And when they visit Grammy, my kids indulge in some gluten-free, dairy-free ice cream. We are loyal forever and always to...

20 Homemade Cracker Recipes

If you have children, you are familiar with… cracker addictions. Am I right? Or is it just my kids? In theory this is fine, because crackers can be topped with all sorts of healthy and yummy spreads. Hummus or guacamole? Raw cheese or nut butter? There are so...

Homemade Chocolate Granola Bars

Do you ever just want something…CHOCOLATE?  I do, often.  My kids are no different.  So whenever we spend an afternoon in the kitchen baking, they usually request chocolate chips as an ingredient, no matter what we’re making. These granola bars we created...

Easy Cassava Flour Crackers

I am constantly on the search for easy homemade lunch and snack ideas.  Both of my children take a homemade lunch or snack to school everyday, so each night before bed I find myself in the same place… …in front of the open fridge, staring and waiting for a...

Healthy Rice Krispies Treats

My kids love dessert.  Yes, I said that out loud. I will admit my kids are not organic, grass-fed meat and veggie-loving kids.  In fact when my son gets really angry with me he likes to tell me how much he LOVES GMOs and wants to eat them everyday. Oh parenthood. My...

Homemade Plantain Chips

My husband told me yesterday that I have a plantain problem. Um, I guess I’ve been a little obsessed with them lately. Personally I can’t think of a reason NOT to love plantains.  They allow me to make grain-free versions of some of my favorite comfort...

DIY Freezer Protein Bars for Kids

I have to come clean about something here. My kids love bars. My daughter loves them so much she asks me for a bar about 30 times a day and I do not exaggerate that number in the slightest. As a mom, I like the idea of a bar.  You know…a small, portable (!!),...

Teeny Cookies (Gluten-free)

Funny story about these “cookies.” The recipe is adapted from Rebecca Katz’s “Legal Cookie” recipe in the cookbook: The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen. I don’t need to tell you again how much I love her cookbooks (One Bite at a Time and...

Easy Homemade Chocolate Gummies

I am constantly trying to find ways to sneak in more protein and grass-fed gelatin into my kids meals.  The other day we made “chocolate flowers” as my children are calling them and even my son (who usually won’t touch things made with gelatin) kept...

Toasted Sunflower Honey Crackers (gluten-free, dairy-free)

Lately, I’ve been pretty obsessed with making a homemade cracker my kids will eat. You see, we moved to Argentina awhile back and all things changed for us food-wise. I had no idea I was moving to the country of crackers, cookies and coca-cola, but that’s...

Homemade Fruit Snacks (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

I have been working on this recipe for WEEKS.  My kids have always loved the idea of fruit snacks, but the store bought varieties are so full of artificial colors and sweeteners that I never buy them.  I love portable homemade snacks for kids so when I bought my first...

Toddler-Friendly Green Smoothie

A simple way to give your child’s daily meal plan a super nutrition boost is to introduce daily green smoothies.  The earlier you do this the better because a child’s taste buds start developing before birth!  Pregnant and nursing women should eat a wide...

Homemade Crackers (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

My son eats crackers every day at school for his snack.  While this isn’t exactly my first choice when it comes to his mid-morning nutrition—we don’t have a lot of other options here in Argentina.  Well, maybe cookies.  And if the choice is between...

Puffed Quinoa Granola Bars (Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free)

We’ve been making these around here for the past week. They have a similar texture to store bought granola bars which my son really likes. He ate them like crazy the first day we made them, but like most things in the food department, he’s tired of it after a day…more...

Protein Cookies (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

Where oh where has Kula Mama gone??? Well… Kula Baby is now a big brother!  We welcomed his little sister about 6 weeks ago. I’ve re-entered the world of frequent feedings, diapers changes, swaddling, and cat napping to salvage some semblance of sanity. I...

Kula Baby’s Favorite Milkshake

This “milkshake” is Kula Baby’s new favorite summer treat.  He thinks he’s getting some sort of chocolate-flavored ice cream and I’m in no hurry to tell him otherwise.  This smoothie is a perfect blend of protein and sweet.  It’s...

Brain-Building Trail Mix (Gluten-free)

We are preparing for a big trip to Disneyland soon so I’ve been busy in the kitchen preparing lots of healthy snacks to take with us.  I figure it’s my job to try to balance all the crap we are sure to eat at the park with some healthy snack options.  I...

Energy Bites (Dairy-free, Gluten-free)

Our pantry has been bare the last couple of weeks.  Kula Baby’s been surviving on rice bread and almond butter at snack time because I’ve been too lazy to whip up something better.  The problem is he always eats rice bread and almond butter so he really...
