Our Top 10 (Nut Free) Lunchbox Recipes

These cookies pull off a nutty flavour without the nuts, take less than 30 minutes to make and last up to 2 weeks in the pantry. And no, they won’t get your kids high. Check out the recipe here.


Curry Spiced Bean Corn Coconut Salad

Beans are the best. Not only are they packed with plant-based protein and fibre, they’re super afforable, easy to cook and keep well for a long time. Pop a container of this delicious salad in Junior’s lunchbox for a nutritious and fuss-free lunch. Check out the recipe here.


Tahini Caramel Bliss Balls

If you’re a fan of throw-everything-in-the-food-processor kind of snacks, this one is for you. These balls are super simple and packed with tasty, nutritious ingredients – the perfect lunchbox snack! Recipe here.


Homemade No-Bake Cherry Ripe Bars

5 ingredients and about 20 minutes will win you 10 of these bars. Even better – they’re free of the preservatives, plastic packaging and other nasties you’ll find in your average chocolate bar! Check out the recipe here.


Cypriot Salad With A Twist

This salad isn’t technically nut-free so you’ll need to omit them to make it lunchbox-safe! It’s perfect to make in advance – it tastes even better after a day or two. 

Pair it with your favourite choice of protein or as a side – this one has been paired with seared feta (exactly how you’d sear haloumi) – yum! Recipe here.

These cookies were our number-two most made recipe of 2018 – second only to our Chunky Hedgehog Slice! They’re perfect for lunchboxes – just substitute your choice of flour in place of the almond meal. Check out the recipe here.


Spiced Pumpkin Quinoa

This salad is nutritiously packed and perfect to make in advance – simply swap out the maple nuts for maple roasted chickpeas, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. Get the recipe here.

Choc Banana Blondies

They may be the vanillas of the brownie world, but these Choc Banana Blondies are anything but boring!

These blondies are soft and spongey, nut-free, guilt-free and perfect to pop in lunchboxes. Check out the recipe here.

Oat Blueberry Spelt Muffins

Not a nut in sight, refined sugar free and optionally dairy free. But most importantly – delicious, of course. Check out the recipe here!

Tahini Pop Bars

Scrap the packaged and processed snack bars and make your own. These bars are packed with nutritious hemp seeds, tahini and sesame seeds. Recipe here.
