Here are a few of my foolproof kid-friendly recipes.
Pinterest has the most amazing & simple kids snack ideas, which is where I found these! One of my top after-school snacks: ‘Mini Ham and Cheese Quinoa Cups.’ Packed with protein and low in calories!
I’ve been using quinoa a ton recently and the extremely picky 5-year-old I nanny gobbled these up!
The BEST part is you can adapt this recipe so easily depending on your taste and what you have in the fridge.
- 1 cup shredded zucchini
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg whites
- 2 cups cooked quinoa
- 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup diced ham
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
- 2 tablespoons parmesan
- 2 sliced green onions
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
Non-stick spray a mini muffin tin and spoon in mixture.
Bake 15-20 min until edges are golden brown. Let cool before removing from tin.
I got this idea for ‘Simple Cinnamon Rolls’ from one of my favorite blogs and had to share! So easy, healthy, and kids are sure to love this treat.
- 1 can refrigerated dough
- Olive oil
- Cinnamon sugar
- Granny smith apples – or apples of your choice
First, open the dough and roll it out flat onto a floured cookie sheet. Brush it with olive oil then sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.
My favorite dough is from Immaculate Baking Co. & sold at Whole Foods. The ingredients are all recognizable, unlike Pillsbury, etc. Their biscuit dough makes delicious cinnamon rolls, you’ll just need to roll it out into a sheet.
Cut pieces length wise so you have long, thin strips.
Roll up each strip and stick in a few thin slices of apple.
Put in a greased mini muffin tin and bake at 350 for 10-15 min.
YUM! Using a mini muffin pan will keep it to an individual small treat.
