My daughters class is nut-free, so we’re always looking for healthy and nut-free snacks. The Classic Glo Bar recipe from fellow Canadian Angela Liddon’s amazing vegan cookbook is a great alternative. It’s so much healthier than typical granola bars, packed with hemp, chia, oatmeal, seeds, and held together with a mix of brown rice syrup (has a lower glycemic index so you’ll avoid blood sugar spikes) and nut-free butter.
Who doesn’t like banana bread really? It’s the classic snack, great for on-the-go and terrific as a litter-less snack for school-aged kids. A lot of coffee shops often sell individually wrapped slices, but to me they’re often lacking flavour, or made with questionable ingredients, and way too much sugar for my palate.
Today I was busy getting new labels written out and ordered, working out the design and text for our new Bare Bum Balm (which will be making it’s debut later this month), and generally doing some thinking on how to word things, different containers to consider, that sort of thing.
