With so many allergies nowadays, finding safe and healthy snacks and treats can be a challenge – but it gets easier when you make recipes from scratch at home. This recipe for school safe energy bites is a perfect example – it’s simple, very flavourful and great for kids of all ages!
These allergen-friendly energy bites were created by Culinary Nutrition Expert Suzy Larsen.
Suzy is well-known for her tasty and creative blog recipes – and for being the prime videographer and editor for her daughter’s Youtube cooking show, Cooking With Coco.
Like all of the recipes featured on our blog, this recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free. Pumpkin pie and carrot cake are the inspiration behind these energy balls full of brain-building omega-3s from hemp seeds and muscle-calming magnesium from pumpkin seeds. Figs round out the flavour and texture sensation while adding soluble fibre for great digestion. While most children around the world aren’t in school right now, this recipe is very allergen-friendly and it’s a good one to have in your back pocket for snacks during the day and to use once school begins in-person again!
