Valentine’s Day takes on a whole new meaning when you add kids to the mix. Along with red roses and romantic dinners out, clever classroom Valentines and sweet treats also take center stage. Unfortunately, that can often mean a sugar overload.
Today we’ve got a Valentine treat idea perfect for kids, teachers, your best friend, or your sweetheart. And the best part is it’s gluten and allergy free and won’t overload you on the sugar.
Read on for the recipe as well as ideas and free printables for pulling together this lovely gift.
IngredientsGluten Free Cereals - Cinnamon Heaven, Roasted coconut shavings, Freeze-dried strawberries, Freeze-dried cranberries,
To make the trail mix, simply combine equal parts of the freeze-dried fruit and coconut shavings with roughly twice as much cereal. We love the vibrant colors of the freeze-dried cranberries and strawberries but you could also substitute with dried fruit as well.
For a pretty presentation, try layering the cereal and toppings in a mason jar. Punch a hole in our free printable labels and use baker’s twine to attach one to each jar.
For smaller portions that are perfect for allergen-free classrooms, scoop the trail mix into a glassine bag and affix the label with a Valentine sticker. You can whip up a batch big enough to feed 30 kids in about 5 minutes with this simple recipe and our handy-dandy printables.
