Hi I'm looking for recipes for healthy snacks that I can cook for my two year old. I keep,trying ones I find in magazines and they are so bland and tasteless and neither of us like them.
Is there anything out there or do I need to accept that without heaps of butter/sugar things just taste boring?

Place all the dry ingredients in a food processor and mix together. Gradually add the tahini and the honey whilst the motor in processor is still running.

Store the balls in an airtight container.

We made zucchini chocolate cake! There is a bit of sugar in the one I made, so try googling for the healthiest recipe. Good way to get them eating some veg!

I made similar bliss balls today:
Handful dates and sultanas
Cup mixed nuts
2 TB cocoa
2TB honey or corn syrup
1/4 cup shredded coconut
Whizz in food processor. Shape into balls and roll in coconut.
I'm trying these instead of chocolate when I want a sweet treat. They're yum.

These are pretty good, though I have to say they do taste a little 'weetbixy' and I hate weetbix. I had one and was a little *yuck* and then my 18 month old 'shared' with me and I can't refuse her and it was actually pretty nice. I think they're pretty healthy. They could do with some yummy icing, but that would defeat the purpose.
Ps, the instructions that are missing is just to place them in the pan upside down on a wire rack for 10 minutes before removing the pan, it helps to flatten them out a little, but mine were flat anyway. I made them in the silicone heart shaped muffin tray from K-Mart for Valentines day breaky.

Also, it's pretty simple, and not really skilled at all, but The kids and I LOVE sliced banana rolled in coconut. For a slightly naughtier treat, You can also buy 'moist coconut flakes' from woolies/Coles and its sweetened. Banana slices rolled in those flakes are just awesome. Out of this world!
