Depending on which state you live in your kids will be back to school this week or next. If you are like us you’ll be needing some lunchbox goodies that can be pulled from the freezer and quickly added to lunchboxes in the morning.
So here’s our ‘Top 5’ lunchbox goodies to give you some inspiration this week!
1. Weetbix Balls
An oldie but an absolute favourite. We love recipes that don’t require actual cooking and this is one the kids can really make themselves. Truth be told I’ve been known to dip in and help myself to one of these goodies as they can be eaten straight from the freezer. Find the recipe here and if your kids are gluten free why don’t you test it out with gluten free Weet Bix!
2. Peanut FREE Peanut Butter Cookies
Say what? How do you make peanut FREE peanut butter cookies? Well thanks to the ingenuity of Erin we discovered you could make these cookies using a can of chickpeas instead of peanut butter! Go to our Ridiculously Delicious Peanut Butter Cookie recipe here and find tips on how to convert them to being peanut FREE at the bottom.
3. Gluten Free Blueberry Loaf with a hint of lemon
Not only gluten free but also dairy and nut free so perfect for gluten free kids to take to school. It’s a ‘throw it all together and stir’ type recipe so really easy to make. Once baked and cooled we slice it, cling wrap slices separately and freeze. Find this delicious recipe here.
4. Paleo Pumpkin Muffins
Most kids LOVE muffins and with these little beauties you are sneaking in some vegetables whilst the kids think they are getting a treat! Once again we’ve used coconut flour in this recipe so great for gluten free kids (or any kid) to take to school. You can see these were popular with our little taste testers. Find the recipe here.
5. The Sugar Breakup Chocolate Biscuits
These chocolate biscuits have started to take on a life of their own with many people telling us they are always in demand in their households. These Chocolate Biscuits and our Gingernut Biscuits are based on a similar recipe and we are always torn as to which one is our favourite! These do not need to be frozen, they will stay crunchy and fresh in an airtight container in the pantry for weeks. Find the recipe here.
Well that’s our Top 5, boy it was a hard choice! There are so many more that we love so why not stop by our Recipe page and check out all our recipes. Need some Golden Rice Malt Syrup or Dextrose for your cooking? Then stop by our online shop and have it delivered straight to your door! And don’t forget to let us know what your kids enjoy in their lunchboxes. We always love hearing new recipes and ideas from you guys.
