Whip up these nut-free snacks for a post-workout fix, a kid's lunchbox snack, or just as a mid-day pick me up.
Maintaining a healthy diet with any kind of food allergy can seem tricky, but a nut allergy can feel like a life-sized road block on your path to health. Nuts boast tons of nutritious benefits, so they find themselves sprinkled into calorie-conscience granola bar and spooned into protein packed smoothies. As more schools are going nut free, parents are scouring Pinterest to find replacements for their go-to peanut butter cracker snack.
