My friend (and former roommate) Sara and I headed up to Northern California for the USC vs Stanford Football Game and brought some homemade vegan, gluten-free snacks to bring with us.
We wanted to bring one banana based and one berry based treat. I made Cupcakes and Kale Chips’ Banana Nut Bread Granola Bars (using maple syrup as sweetener instead of the agave called for, it was what I had on hand and made them taste more like fall) and was quite impressed with how they turned out. They held together well which I was worried about because the recipe mentioned how easily they fall apart. I packed them in tupperware for the trip up to NorCal, I'd recommend always packing baked goods in tupperware for travel to help the goodies make it in one piece!
Sara made Straight Up Food’s Orange Berry Muffins.They were good but did not travel well as they got mushed and a bit moist. The flavors of orange and blueberry went very well together and certainly eliminated any need for sweetener!
We were glad to be able to eat our oil-free, refined sugar free, football snacks and skip on all of the unhealthy stadium options. To top it all off, USC won the football game!
Speaking of sporting events, if you ever find yourself at an MLB stadium, here are some stadiums with veggie options.
