3 Healthy After School Treats for Your Little Veggie

3 Healthy After School Treats for Your Little Veggie

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

I want my children growing up eating healthy foods without animal products. I understand I can not control their diet every minute of the day, so I make sure they have vegan healthy snacks after school. I have my children help make the snacks they eat. Here are a few fun snack recipes for your little vegan.

1.) Peanut Butter Play Dough 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Jar 18 ounces organic peanut butter – smooth
  • 6 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • Almond milk power – mix until right consistency
  • Vegan chocolate chips
  • Raisins
  • Unsalted nuts 

Preparation:

  • Add all ingredients to mixing bowl.
  • Slowly add almond milk powder mixing well
  • Continue to slowly add almond milk power until it forms a dough that you can handle and will not stick to your hands

Instructions: 

The children can make shapes from the dough and decorate with vegan chocolate chips, raisins and nuts. After they finish their clay forms they can be eaten. Store the rest of the children’s clay forms in a sealed plastic container in your refrigerator.

2.) Dinosaur Balls

This is a fun treat for the children. When we make at home the children have named the ingredients for different part of dinosaurs.

Ingredients Part 1:

  •  2 Cups Pterodactyl toenails, crushed (vegan sugar)
  • ½ Cup Swamp water (evaporated milk 1 cup dry soy milk with ½ cups water)

  • Remove from heat 

Ingredients Part 2:

  • 3 Cups bones (dried oats)
  • 1 Cup dried grass (coconut)
  • 2 Tablespoon dirt (vegan cocoa)

Preparation:

  • Mix the ingredients together
  • Pour the hot liquid mixture into dry ingredients
  • Mix well
  • Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper
  • Let cool
  • Fun part eat

 When we make this recipe at home, I have the children call them dinosaur eggs or dinosaur balls for fun.
