Fun kids afternoon snack made with a celery & peanut butter tree, bread monkey and Cocoa Krispy ground!
Breakfast for my little guy!
1 Ole Xtreme low carb tortilla
1tsp Paleo Butter (stay tuned for a new product spotlight, it’s amazing!)
1 container of fat free strawberry Greek yogurt
Fresh fruit of choice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut two smaller circles out of the tortilla. Mix together the cinnamon and stevia on a small paper plate. Melt the Paleo Butter (@paleobutter) in the microwave for 25 seconds. Brush both sides of the tortillas with the butter and then dip them into the cinnamon sugar. Place in ramekins that have been sprayed with cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes or until crispy. Fill each cup with yogurt and top with fruit!
Mash the banana & peanut butter together in a bowl with a fork. Next add in the cacao powder, vanilla & stevia and stir until well combined. Finally mix the cooked quinoa into the banana mixture & enjoy!
This is currently the ONLY way that I can get my 4 year old to eat Quinoa, but it’s a start!
Quinoa Fruit Salad – only 175 calories!
60grams precooked Better Body Foods tricolor quinoa
1tsp Better Body Foods agave nectar
Juice from half a lemon
In a small bowl combine the agave nectar & lemon juice. Cut up all of the fruit and mix together with the precooked quinoa and top with the lemon dressing!
My little guy was responsible for using the cookie cutter on the bread as well as crushing the cereal! His future wife will thank me for the cooking skills he is going to have by then!
Few Slices of bread
1/2-1cup of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal (plan on about 1/3-1/2 cup per serving of bread)
2 egg whites
1oz any milk
1/2tsp vanilla extract
Place the cereal in a zip lock bag and using a rolling pin, rubber mallet or even little hands crush up the cereal into smaller pieces and pour into a shallow dish. Optional – Use any cookie cutter to cut out desired shape of bread. Combine the eggs, milk, cinnamon & vanilla together in a small bowl and lightly beat with a fork. Dip bread into egg mixture and then into the cereal, coating both sides. Cook over medium low heat (cereal will burn on high temps, ask me how I know!) for a few minutes on each side. Serve with warm maple syrup!
Super easy & fun for the kids!
1 Granny Smith apple
Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Wash & dry apple. Slice the apple as thin as possible using a mandolin slicer (you could try using a knife but it won’t be easy!). Mix together the coconut palm sugar and cinnamon on a plate. Let the little ones get involved by dipping each piece of apple lightly into the mixture on both sides. Place apple pieces on parchment lined baking sheets(2). Bake in the oven for 60 minutes, remove and flip apple slices. Place back in the oven for another 60 minutes, making sure to rotate the baking sheets so that the one that was on the bottom is now on the top.
