Mornings are hectic. Getting everyone up, ready, and out the door for the school bus and off to work on time isn’t easy. Thankfully I pack lunches the night before, but I still find myself running out the door with little to no breakfast in my stomach. I know many other parents can sympathize – we make sure our kids get a hearty breakfast, but we’re scrambling to get dishes done, bags packed, and are just thankful everyone’s socks match.
That’s why the gluten free snacks that I pack for work are so important. They’re often my only morning fuel to give me the energy I need to make it until lunch time. And thanks to Van’s Natural Foods, they don’t have to be boring!
Waffles aren’t just for breakfast! They’re a great bread substitute. This snack idea is fun for adults and kids – who love eating anything on a stick. Using Van’s Gluten Free Blueberry Waffles cut them into squares and spread on a bit of cream cheese to each side. Then add a banana slice to the center before stacking and sliding a pop stick or food pick to through them, to create a “waffle sandwich on a stick”. Pair with fresh fruit on the side. Tip: If you’re worried about the banana slices browning, dip them in a mixture of lemon juice or pineapple juice and water. The acids will help prevent them from browning and by diluting it with water, it won’t affect the taste.
