10 Easy Back to School Recipes You Need to Know

It’s always helpful to have an arsenal of easy back to school recipes in your back pocket, no matter the age of your babes. From healthy chips to no bake snacks, these are things you and your kids will both love! What’s your go-to back to school recipe? 

VEGGIE CHIPS

This simple recipe is so easy and these veggie chips are WAY healthier than the store bought kind. With three options to choose from (carrot, beet and garlic), your family will have so much fun eating them all — I’m partial to the garlic.

AVOCADO BOATS

This recipe allows you to mix and match! Don’t feel like you have to follow all of our ingredients — use whatever tickles your fancy. There is no such thing as a bad avocado boat.

CROCK-POT MINI CHICKEN TACOS

When you are a mom time is of the essence. That is why I love my Crock-Pot, especially in the fall and winter seasons. Nothing is better than coming home to a cooked meal and these cute little tacos require very easy assembly.

NO BAKE UNICORN GRANOLA BARS

Do you know the only thing I love more than my Crock-Pot in the kitchen? Reading the words “no bake” at the top of a recipe! Mix the ingredients together, press into a pan and cut. It doesn’t get more time efficient than that.

KIDS CANDY SUSHI

Step up your Rice Krispies game with Kids Candy Sushi. These adorable “sushi” rolls are too cute not to try.

CHEESE & APPLE TIC • TAC • TOE

We loved making this when Zelda was just starting to become interested in food. If you have cheese, apples, a knife and a cookie cutter you won’t need to buy anything else.

MINI AVOCADO, BACON & GOAT CHEESE PIZZAS

Zelda and I made this for an event a few years ago at Wiliams-Sonoma and I can tell you with confidence, it was a huge hit with the crowd. It makes for a perfect after school snack or a pizza party movie night. No red sauce required.

KITTY CAT BUTTER COOKIES

There is nothing Zelda wants more than a cat. However, since I’m already harboring two men, a toddler, a rabbit and two dogs in my home, we’ll stick to Kitty Cat cookies for now.

MELON STICKS

It always amazes me how a cookie cutter can transform something and these melon sticks are an adorable example. Just pop these hearts on a toothpick and enjoy!

DIY LUNCHABLES

I used Zelda’s favorite OmieBox and separated the food with cupcake liners. Putting this together took less time than making a sandwich and it is so much cuter!
