    These puffed amaranth, pistachio, and dark chocolate granola bars are a great, soy-free alternative for kids with wheat allergies, and they're also grown-up enough for mom to want to steal a few bites for herself. 

  • Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies

    These carrot cake oatmeal cookies are one of the healthiest things we've ever actually enjoyed. We defy kids to even know they're healthy ... just don't tell them and they'll never, ever find out. So very good.

  • Greek Yogurt Dip With Apple Slices

    What we love above all else: A healthy snack that doesn't actually taste healthy. Enter this awesome Greek yogurt dip with apple slices. This recipe calls for peanut butter, but almond or cashew butter would make a great substitute. 

  • Freeze-Dried Strawberry Slices

    We're as likely to throw this into our kids' lunch bags as we are to stash them in our own bag. Super healthy, low-calorie, sweet without any added sugar, don't need to be refrigerated ... they're kind of amazing.

  • Black Bean Brownies

    We know, we know: Black beans don't belong in brownies. Until they do. Honestly, we like this black bean brownies recipe better than mom's classic one, and that used to be our gold standard. It's creamy.

    Let kids pretend to be mermaids (or sea otters!) with these tasty snacks made from just sustainably grown, organic seaweed, olive oil, and sea salt. It's a crunchy, chip-like snack that's wayyyy healthier than chips.

    Kid-friendly guacamole and vegetable sticks is an alternative to serving the delicious, healthy fat of avocados with high-calorie tortilla chips. All that great guac flavor without any of the problems (and lots of vitamins).
