Easy Dessert Recipes For Kids and Lunch Ideas for Toddlers – Delicious Gluten Free Homemade Holiday Treats

 

The holidays are filled with baked treats that our kids look forward to at this time of year. Baking with quality ingredients and even a few superfoods will make you feel better about the treats you give your children over the holidays. These easy dessert recipes for kids are so delicious, tested on kids and adults alike, there will be no need for the store bought varieties that contain many preservatives, artificial colours and flavors that we do not want to put into children’s (or anyone’s) body. They are also great lunch ideas for toddlers and kids!

Gluten can be hard to digest for many people but be weary of packaged food that says gluten-free, as it often contains other unhealthy gluten replacements.

My gluten-free muffin and cookie recipes use quality flours like almond flour and organic oat flour, which contain no gluten (gluten is the protein in flours such as wheat). Gluten can be hard to digest for many people but be weary of packaged food that says gluten-free, as it often contains other unhealthy gluten replacements. With these gluten free muffins and cookies, you can be sure nothing is added to replace gluten except healthier flour choices. You can also be sure that they will put a smile on someone’s face when they take a bite!

Happy Holidays and happy baking!
