Make-ahead lunch box filler ideas

 

I hope you’re all settling into the new year and 2022 has gotten off to a smooth start! Personally, I’m still trying to get back into work mode, but it’s tricky with the kids at home on holiday. They will be returning this week though, and that means that lunch boxes will be added back onto the daily to-do list!

5 ingredient honey and seed bars

 

Happy New Year! I hope that 2022 has gotten off to a good start – maybe you’re still on holiday (yay!). I had a short break over Christmas which was just wonderful. We stayed home and enjoyed lots of eating, swimming, napping and quality time with the fam, just what the doctor ordered. We also hosted Christmas dinner at our place which was very special. Of course it went all too quickly and I had a to-do list waiting for me on Monday morning. Including sharing this short and sweet recipe for these easy and tasty honey and seed bars.

The warmer weather means that smoothies are featuring more regularly on our breakfast and snack menu at home, and chocolate smoothies (not surprisingly) are my favourite. Not only are they delicious but they’re filling too, not to mention filled with wholesome ingredients – love it!

As most children returned to school this week I read a very funny meme posted by a friend that read: “I’m just not sure how my child will survive back at school without 6 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 367 snacks a day!” Snack time is serious business…parents, you can relate right? 😉 And being prepared with a plethora of wholesome options for snack time makes life so much easier. This recipe is perfect for that, and one of our new faves.

Peanut butter fudge blocks

 

Chocolate and peanut butter – definitely a match made in heaven. But enjoying this flavour experience doesn’t necessarily have to be a naughty indulgence. I’ve made these fudge blocks using sugar free peanut butter, honey and coconut oil for a more wholesome but satisfying snack.

Apple and cinnamon fritters with butterscotch sauce

 

I’ve made this recipe quite a few times for the family over the last few weeks – this is lockdown comfort food to the max! The fritters are very easy to whip up and my kids love getting involved and making the recipe themselves. (Batter everywhere but hey, it’s worth it.) It’s a lovely treat for the family, especially on weekends, and sure to bring sugar coated smiles to their faces.

Cranberry cookies

 

I’ve been on the cookie train since lockdown started in March, and this is just one of the many recipes I’ve been playing around with recently. It’s been a while since I last posted a  recipe – the last few weeks have been a blur of school work and moving house (I know, superb timing) whilst keeping on top of my freelance projects. I’m sure many of you are also still finding your way in this new and strange reality. One thing we’ve all been reminded of though is that life is uncertain, so bake cookies with reckless abandon I say!
