Healthy Superbowl Recipes

I am typically not such a big football fan, but we love getting together with friends and hope to do it again this year.

One of the biggest problems with gatherings of this sort, however, is that typically they’re loaded with GMO corn chips, dips made with fake cheese, and sugar-filled desserts.

In the interest of helping my family and yours have some better options, I’ve pulled together this list of Healthy Superbowl Recipes that are Super-Tempting too!

We’ll likely watch the game, but beforehand we typically put baskets together for a charity function that takes place on Monday.

And there is always loads of food when we’re making the baskets, so I’ll be bringing my Savory Hummus and Surprise Seasoning Popcorn to that, regardless.

This past year I did a roundup of Healthy Superbowl Recipes.  Some of the recipes are the same, but you might want to go and check it out.

As far as the Superbowl itself, none of the icky commercials will be watched.  They can get to be a little “too much.”  My son just loves sports, thought, so that (and for the friendships and the charity function) is why we end up watching it.

 First off, some of the things from my blog that we likely will make for this weekend:

Seasoned Popcorn

In my family’s mind, no get together is complete without this popcorn.  I just had a friend come by to buy some of the seasoning from me….maybe that will be a new item in my Natural Products Store :-).

This popcorn seasoning recipe is all natural and totally addictive. Everywhere we take it someone asks us for the recipe - so glad I made the mistake I did to come up with this best popcorn recipe!

Nut Butter Fruit Dip

Haven’t made this one in awhile.  I think it’s high time.  A super yummy fruit (or cookie, or whatever) dip without all the icky additives.

This Nut Butter Fruit Dip is a great alternative to HCFS-laden caramel dips. It's dairy and sugar free too!

Easy Baked Chicken Nuggets

You can make these up ahead and bake them to be fresh in time for your get together.

These Easy Baked Chicken Nuggets taste like you've spent a lot of time on them, but they're ready lickety-split! And they're allergy-friendly too. Dairy and egg-free with gluten-free option.

Savory Hummus (sesame free option)

I really need to redo this photo. But trust me–it’s great!  A friend told me the other day that she doesn’t like store-bought hummus but loves this!

No Bake Coconut Delights

We just made a new version of these that I hope to share soon!  Yum!

These No Bake Cookies are grain-free, sugar-free, and vegan. Perfect for those with special diets and for when you don't want to or don't have time to bake!

Next is a collection of recipes from some of my favorite whole food–allergy friendly bloggers.

Coconut Lime Chicken Bites from Daily Bites

I think I just might have to make these tonight!

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Chickpea Snack from Sugar-Free Mom

Roasted Garbanzos are one of our favorite snacks.  Make them in the winter though because your home gets pretty heated up doing it!  If you can’t have parmesan, try some nutritional yeast instead!

Cocoa Baked Quinoa Bars from Sugar Free Mom

I’m always on the lookout for great new quinoa recipes.  This looks like a keeper!

I hope, whether you watch the “Big Bowl” or not this weekend, that these recipes are a blessing to you and your family.

Will you be watching the game?

  1. What an AMAZING list of snacky foods! I don’t even participate/watch/celebrate Super Bowl (when is it, anywyay? LOL!), but I would still love to munch on any number of these dishes! Thanks so much for linking up to the pizza balls and spiced seeds! Hope you have a fun Superbowl party–whenever it takes place!! :D

  2. I need to bring something to a party on Sunday. Thank you for such great ideas!

  3. OMG! So many yummy recipes. I can’t wait to try those chicken nuggets and the coconut lime chicken. I’m salivating. hahahaha

  4. Very VERY creative!!! Not your average superbowl feast, but oh so delicious! :)

  5. Amazing list! I love seeing the quinoa recipes, especially. I need to find new ways to prepare it that everyone in my family will love.

    Want a cheese dip to go along with those homemade chips?

    4 oz. pepper jack cheese,shredded
    4 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded*
    1 tablespoon arrowroot
    12oz. evaporated milk**
    2 teaspoons homemade hot sauce
    pinch salt

    Toss together cheese and arrowroot(and any spices/herbs you’ll be using), in a medium-sized saucepan, until evenly coated. Stir in 1 cup evaporated milk, the hot sauce and salt. Cook, stirring often, over medium-low heat until thickened, smooth and bubbly. Stir in additional evaporated milk, if needed, until desired consistency is reached.

    *(Or any cheese of your liking. If you’re wanting a nacho-type sauce without using pepper jack, just add some hot peppers or even just more hot sauce or salsa)

    ** I simmered about 3 C of whole milk down till it got to 12oz.
