It is so difficult to find peanut free and nut free granola. Believe me. I know. Most granolas either have peanuts and/or nuts in them or have traces of them. Thankfully companies like I.M. Healthy have dedicated peanut and tree nut free facilities. This assurance is a necessity when you have a child with an allergy.
So we got to try out I.M. Healthy's new line of granola and let me tell you: We love it! It is perfect on top of yogurt, with fruit, or mixed in with cereal or in a trail mix-- you name it. You can use it everywhere you use regular granola, but you get the assurance of it being peanut free and nut free. High in fiber, protein, and yummyness.
Make an easy Halloween Snack:I put some vanilla yogurt in our pumpkin silicone cups and topped it with the granola for a snack. This would be a great addition to any lunch too! I chose to use these pumpkin silicone cups because it is pumpkin season (and we love all things pumpkin) but you can easily use any silicone cup. You can also keep the granola separate from the yogurt so that it doesn't get soggy while sitting in the lunchbox all day. We love to use our mini dippers. By keeping the granola in a separate container it can easily be poured on top of the yogurt during lunchtime:)
Trust me. Your kids will be begging for treats instead of tricks!
Healthy Halloween Treats that is.

We decided to add some fun to our granola! In the top pumpkin I added some mini leaf sprinkles to our granola A few sprinkles go a long way. By just adding a few sprinkles you can turn ordinary granola into fun food. In the bottom left I added some Jack-o-Lantern Sprinkles. In the bottom right I added a few Sixlets.
And now.. onto my little pumpkin thief...This is what happens when you are taking pictures of your granola around your 4 year old... She takes one. And replaces it with a craft pumpkin (which she made). Smart kid ;)
