5 Quick, Healthy, Kid-Friendly Game-Day Recipes

Win or lose, you'll be sure to score points with these dishes.

With the Super Bowl coming up, you're going to want to have some delicious snack recipes ready for the big day. But the problem with most game day staples is that many of them are a pain to make or aren't exactly healthy to eat. Thankfully, there are some great alternatives that your family is sure to love.

These five recipes from food blogger at MommaChef.comand mother of three Karen Nochimowski pack all the delicious flavors you expect on game day without any of the regret or complicated prep. Which means you can spend less time getting them ready and more time enjoying them during the game.

3 Ingredient Chicken Wings

I make these three-ingredient chicken wings as appetizers for practically every dinner party I host. Inevitably, all the kids are full from eating so many wings before dinner is even served! They are so incredibly easy and always come out delicious. After you make these once, you will see why they are always the hit of the party.

Splurge-Safe Low Carb Cheesecake

Have you ever found yourself wistfully staring into your refrigerator, looking for something to satisfy your sweet tooth without busting your diet? What if you saw a cheesecake staring back at you? Most of us would forget about our diets, grab a fork, and enjoy a slice (or two), followed by a large serving of guilt. What if I told you that you could have your (cheese)cake and eat it too—with less than three grams of carbs and only 100 calories per piece. By substituting all-natural Nectevia or a sugar substitute for white sugar, I was able to create a low-carb, crave-worthy, creamy splurge-safe cheesecake. And with only five ingredients, you can whip us this cheesecake in under five minutes!

The Best Baked Salami

This recipe comes from a friend. After tasting it at her house—and probably finishing off a good majority of the salami all by myself—I knew it was something I had to start making. This salami is by far one of my kids’ favorite appetizers and always a huge hit with adults as well. If you’re serving this for a larger crowd, I suggest making two salamis. You’ll see how fast they go!

Deliciously Easy 4-Ingredient Baked Donuts

My kids love donuts—it's probably their favorite dessert. So, of course, I wanted to figure out a way to make a homemade, healthier version. These cake doughnuts aren't fried; they are baked in a hot oven! All you need is four ingredients and a donut pan, and in five minutes you will have donuts in the oven. (If you don’t own a donut pan, you need to get one ASAP. In less than 20 minutes, you can make fresh donuts that are so much healthier than the fried ones.) The donuts are best when eaten the same day but can be covered and stored at room temperature up to two days. You can also freeze donuts for up to two months. If frozen, just throw in the microwave for 30 seconds when ready to serve.

SB&J Sushi Rolls

Are you looking for a fun and simple recipe to make for your kids’ lunches? Look no further than these SB&J Sushi Rolls. To begin with, they are pretty darn cute. Who can resist a sweet little roll-up? Plus, sushi is super hip with the elementary school crowd. Next, they are so easy to prepare. This recipe can be easily completed under five minutes—including making an extra serving for yourself to nosh on after the kids head to school. Finally, they are made with SunButter instead of peanut butter. It's made from sunflower seeds, and it's absolutely nut-free, so it's safe to bring to school and for kids with nut allergies.
