I’m back from a wonderful 4 days at the cottage where the weather was beautiful and the sun was shining!
At home the weather is rainy and it feels like Fall. Time to start planning homemade, nutritious snack ideas for the kids lunches. I got two huge zucchini from my father-in-law when we were at the cottage and I made these Zucchini Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars with one of them. Good thing the kids like them because they’re going in the freezer for their snacks.
I was actually surprised the kids liked them because normally they’re turning their noses up to zucchini. I didn’t tell them at first there was zucchini in them but they figured it out by all the strands of green inside. I grated my zucchini rather big but you could grate it a lot finer and I’m sure no one would ever know it was in there.
I added chocolate chips into mine because that always gets my kids interested in what I’m baking. You can add whatever you feel like, such as coconut, raisins or nuts. When I’m baking for my family I always go with chocolate chips because I know they’ll get eaten in no time!
If you have any healthy (nut-free) snacks that freeze well, let me know. I’d love to get lots of great ideas and share some on my blog!
Have a great day!
