4th of July Recipe Roundup


For everyone who is going to a 4th of July party this week, here are some of my favorite recipes to take to gatherings. They are all delicious and healthy so if I show up somewhere with one of these, I know there will be at least one healthy option around and one thing that is allergy free for my kids to munch on!


Cranberry Oatmeal Scone

Red, White, and Blue Muffins. Sub half of the strawberries for blueberries.



Cookie Dough Hummus


Creamy Garlic Hummus (serve with red peppers, cauliflower, and purple carrot spears for festive colors)


Side dishes/ Vegetarian or Vegan main dish/appetizer:

Mexican Bean and Corn Pasta Salad


Sausage and Spinach Stuffed Mini Peppers


Dessert: Everyone will bring cookies or brownies, switch things up…

Cannoli Cups


Red, white, and blue Mini Cheesecakes. Top with strawberries and blueberries.


Oreo Cheesecake Cookies


I am thinking I am going to bring either the Strawberry Muffins or Mini cheesecakes to my get together! Hope everyone has a great holiday and enjoys the fireworks. Stay cool in this crazy hot weather we are having!

  1. I just made a similar chickpea cookie dough dip, and thought I was so original… 🙂 AND I was sharing a black bean-corn salad in tomorrow’s post… great minds think alike! These all look so yummy. I don’t have any good scone recipes, I’ll have to try yours!
