Blueberry + Raspberry Little Bites

We have been making these twice a week of late. All my little ones love to eat them, plus I don’t mind a cheeky one for afternoon tea either. It’s so handy to have bite size foods to grab straight from the fridge that are made from wholesome foods with no added nasties!

They are really simple to create and take 5minutes prep time and then 20minutes to bake.

The is perfect for your older bub or toddler for breakie, morning tea or an afternoon snack.

Here is the recipe! Tag me @aliceinhealthyland if you make them. It melts my heart seeing your little ones eat my recipes!

Ingredients 💁🏼‍♀️

1/2 cup blueberries

1 cup organic raw oats

1 banana

1 apple

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 chia egg (you can do egg if you prefer a non vegan option)

1 tsp yogurt of choice, we use coconut

1/4 cup milk of choice, we use almond

Handful of spinach leaves

Method 💁🏼‍♀️

1. Blitz all ingredients in blender. I use my @vitamix_aunz 💫.

2. Put mixture into mini muffin moulds and top with strawberries.

3. Place in a 180 degree preheated oven.

Bake for 15minutes to 20minutes or until cooked through. We have a fan forced oven.

4. Enjoy with your kiddies.

Notes

– You can double or triple the recipe and pop in freezer for meal prep.

– I store mine in my fridge in air tight jar or container.

I love making these for morning tea for myself too. I just add a little @180nutrition superfood vegan protein blend into mine.

Peanut Butter + Maple Cookies

Peanut Butter + Maple Cookies

I made these cookies for breakfast as I wanted to have a bit of a change from the usual smoothies and porridge. The cookies are completely egg and dairy free. I got them out the oven and within literally 30 minutes, the tribe and I ate them all. None left haha! I guess they were a winner. They were chewy on the outside and soft on the inside, delicious!

Pawpaw & avocado deliciousness for Winnie

Papaya, also known as papaw, is a rich source of antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and special digestive enzymes. The powerhouse of these enzymes is the proteolytic enzyme papain.

The papaya enzyme papain plays a key role in digestive processes involving breaking down tough protein fibers.

What is in my toddlers lunchbox?

 

Feat. Australian Certified Organic.

 

Packing my toddlers lunch box daily can be a bit of a challenge as Cruz (nearly 2) can like something one day and then change his mind the next and say his famous “no” to what I have on offer. So I like to mix up his lunchbox with a few different yummy goodies and options but also like to offer him some of the same foods daily even if he doesn’t eat them because tomorrow he may haha.

Little Banana Bites 

I often walk through the supermarket checking out what they have to offer, what’s new in store, what can I give my son and myself for lunchbox snacks. 
Everytime I thought I found something that would be good for us, I turned it over to read the nutrients and it would be high sugar, high sodium or would have an ingredient I couldn’t even pronounce in it. 

DO WE REALLY WANT TO PUT THAT IN OUR BODIES OR OUR CHILDREN’S BODIES?

Even a lot of baby foods were high in these ingredients! It’s crazy. 

I decided this week to create a mini lunch box snack that I used to enjoy when I was in primary school “little bites” for Cruzies lunch box. I’m sure I wouldn’t mind them in mine either! 


The baking tray for these minis is from @kmartaus it was $2. 

Recipe is simple – 1 banana, 30g organic oats, 30mls of my green juice (kale, spinach and coconut water), can just use coconut water, 1 egg, cinnamon and 30g of wholemeal flour. Blend all ingredients together in a blender or you can mix a bowl of you wish it to be more chunky. 

Pour into cake mould and and bake on 180degrees for 15minutes. 


This made 8 mini bites. Cruz ate two in one serving. 

Note – can double or triple the recipe and add in blueberries or extra mix ins. 

Little mashies – yogurt and fruit bubba snacks. 


I decided to prep some yogurt and fruit/veg for Cruzie. I think it would also be a great idea for adults to have as a snack or a quick breakie on the go. 
I’m always looking for new lunch box ideas. I’ve noticed that supermarkets have been selling alot of children’s pre made snacks, juices, meals and yogurts in these pouches. 
So many of them are so so high in sugar. Some higher that cans of coke and they have 4 health stars? How can they do that? Trucking so many people into thinking these products are healthy. 
From my own research I have seen that sugar is an addiction that so many of us want to break. I don’t want to pass this on to our children. I want to start good habits. 
Here are 3 quick easy recipes for either yourself or your child to add to the lunchbox. 

Apple Bircher 

1/2 Apple steamed

20g frozen spinach

Pinch of cinnamon

Blend the above ingredients in a blender.

Spoon in the mixture into the pouch. 

Then add a layer of 2 tbsp coconut or full fat Greek yogurt to the pouch. 

Can add a layer of organic oats soaked in coconut water. 


Berry blitz yogurt

30g blueberries 

3 large strawberries

1/2 a steamed Apple

30mls coconut water

Cinnamon

Blend the above ingredients in a blender.

Spoon in the mixture into the pouch. 
Then add a layer of 2 tbsp coconut or full fat Greek yogurt to the pouch.


Green yogurt smoothie

30g baby spinach

1/2 Apple steamed

Cinnamon

1/4 steam zucchini

1/2 steamed pear

Blend the above ingredients in a blender.

Spoon in the mixture into the pouch. 

Then add a layer of 2 tbsp coconut or full fat Greek yogurt to the pouch.


You can enjoy all of these straight from the fridge and can leave in fridge for up to 48hrs. Can freeze too and get out when you need! 

Hope you enjoy these super quick recipes.
