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 haven't been...

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 doesn't...

Simple Hummus (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

I am a hummus addict. For real. Not a day goes by that I don't dip a veggie or spread a cracker with this delectable treat.  Early in Kula Baby's culinary adventures, I learned to use hummus as a protein source for any snack involving his beloved cracker.  For a...

Roasted Veggie Fries (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

You can never have enough snack recipes on hand when trying to keep up with a child's fast metabolism. These Roasted Veggie Fries are a great snack for both kids and adults. They take about 35 minutes to prepare from start to finish. Loaded with immune-boosting...

Kale Chips

Kale Chips! (Don't be scared.) This is such an easy, nutritious snack...I want to thank my friend Suzanne for reminding me about them on her website last month.  Kula Baby and I made them together awhile ago and then promptly forgot about these yummy chips.  Do you...

Gluten-free Coconut Banana Muffins

We are always trying out new gluten-free recipe experiments in this house. Creating homemade finger foods we can take on the road is always a plus, too. This recipe has both components, making it a Kula Baby favorite. GF Coconut Banana Muffins contain flaxseeds, a...

Power Bites (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

These Power Bites serve as a healthy dessert when your kids want something sweet but you don't want them climbing the walls for the next 8 hours.  Made with brown rice syrup, these treats are yummy without raising blood sugar to temper tantrum levels!  Power Bites are...

Gluten-Free Maple Cherry Bread

I'm forbidden from making this bread again for the next month because we've eaten 2 loaves in under a week.  This yummy bread is gluten-free crack---so addictive. Kula Baby started running into the kitchen every day and pointing to the bread, demanding his fix. You...

Choose Your Own Adventure Energy Bars

It is impossible to go anywhere with children if you don't have healthy (and mess-free) snacks on hand.  Lately I've been obsessed with trying to make the perfect energy bar.  We aren't fans of pre-made energy bars in this house because they are highly processed and...

Maple Flax Yogurt

I've learned never to underestimate the power of maple syrup.  A few drops can change the "wow" kid factor of many dishes.  Grade B maple syrup contains a lot of zinc, a mineral needed for immune function, among other things.  This doesn't mean maple syrup should...

Fruity Cashew Cream

Enjoy something sweet for Valentine's Day!  Kula Baby has been eating this cashew cream on his oatmeal for the past week.  It's a great way to add a healthy fat and protein to your child's meal.  It also contains real fruit. Fruity Cashew Cream tastes like dessert (He...

Hummus and Trees

Kula Baby loves broccoli.  Mostly because it dips in hummus, makes a mess, and tastes yummy.  This lunch is a great way for him to practice his hand-to-eye coordination and get in his daily greens at the same time.  It is also a great way for him to make a mess while...

Roasted Asparagus

They're HEEEEERRRREEEE!  Asparagus reappeared at our farmer's market last weekend and I've been living on roasted asparagus ever since.  Kula Baby is officially a fan of his new green finger food.  He loves it when I give him the whole asparagus at once.  He does not...
