This healthy oven-dried apple recipe is perfect if you want to make dried apples at home and don't have a dehydrator. Great for lunchboxes or as a snack, homemade dried apples are easy to make in the oven and are high in fiber and nutrients. To retain the fiber from the peels and to save time, we skip the step of peeling the apples first. We also skip coring--the star-shaped core makes a pretty shape in the center of each dried apple. For crispy apple chips, bake the apples about 1 hour more.
Crunchy Chocolate-Raspberry Yogurt
This fun snack features high-protein Greek yogurt. If kids won't eat plain yogurt, substitute vanilla fat-free Greek yogurt. (If you want to wean kids off sweet yogurt, mix together half of each kind.)
Cucumber Hummus Sandwiches
Cucumber tea sandwiches get a low-carb makeover when you skip the bread and add high-protein hummus.
Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas
Try this satisfying snack instead of nuts. The tasty legumes are lower in calories and packed with fiber.
Kids not a fan of kale? These crispy baked kale chips might change their mind! For the best result, don't overcrowd the pans.
Pink Lemonade Nice Cream
Sweet, tangy and so refreshing, this treat tastes like dessert but it's 100% fruit! The bananas make it ultra creamy, so it tastes like a cross between sorbet and ice cream.
Chocolate-Dipped Frozen Banana Bites
Kids will love these bite-size frosty morsels of frozen banana, peanut butter and vegan chocolate. Make ahead and store in the freezer.
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Be sure to save the seeds from your pumpkin so you can make this crunchy, healthy snack.
