My family loves granola. Kids and grown-ups alike – it’s a staple at our breakfast table. It also shows up at dessert time fairly often, and it’s a great snack for when we’re on-the-go.

The problem with a lot of store bought (and even homemade) granola, is that it contains peanuts or tree nuts. Now, don’t get me wrong, we love those types of granola, but there are many cases where we go somewhere that has been designated as a nut-free zone.

My son’s preschool is one of these places, and I’m not able to send several items with him due to allergy restrictions. So I was thrilled to learn that MadeGood has a whole line of allergy-friendly granola snacks.

They’re made in a facility free of 8 common allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, dairy, egg, soy, sesame, and fish. And they’re organic, non-GMO, ethically sourced, too!

There are several flavors, in both bars and minis. And as a bonus, each individual package contains 1 serving of vegetables from 6 vegetable sources.

I immediately gravitated toward the Chocolate Banana Granola Bars. They combine a bunch of my favorite flavors.

And dark chocolate?! Yes, please!

I thought it would be fun to turn the Chocolate Banana Granola Minis into a fun after school snack for my kiddo.

The banana and chocolate were totally giving me banana split vibes, so I added some fresh fruit and paired it with yogurt for dipping.

We happen to love plain yogurt, but vanilla would also be really nice here. It’d give you that vanilla ice cream flavor, but without feeling like junk food.

And if you want to keep this vegan, by all means use your favorite soy or other non-dairy yogurt.

Food on a stick is always fun, and these skewers are no different. They’re different from the lunch kabobs I make for my son’s lunch sometimes, and anything with “banana split” in the title is guaranteed to get a smile.

These would be great packed in his lunchbox for school, too! And I can feel good knowing that he’s getting extra nutrition and not bringing in anything that could potentially cause a reaction to one of his classmates.

The combinations for these kabobs could be endless! The Apple Cinnamon Granola Minis would be fun for an Apple Pie a la Mode Kabob, and the Strawberry Granola Minis would be fun for a Strawberries and Cream Kabob.

Making food more fun without a ton of fuss is always a good idea. My son loves trying new things, and is already asking me when he will get this special treat again.

And how can I say no to that little face?!
