This lion snack is one of the most adorable snack ideas for kids. With The Lion King releasing in a live action form this summer, this would make the perfect The Lion King recipe for an after-school snack or great for birthday parties.
These also make great lion cookies for animal party food ideas. Because I don’t know about you but as a parent, I have picky eaters sometimes. However, if I put out cookies with faces on it or make it cute? My kids gobble it up! Right?
What can I use instead of peanut butter?
This snack does call for peanut butter. However, I understand that there are severe peanut allergies in some people. Here are some peanut butter alternatives that you can use for the spread, just in case. Be reminded that even some alternatives can cause allergic reactions in some people so be sure to read labels, consult medical professionals, etc.
- Sunflower Seed Butter
- Cookie Butter
- Coconut Butter
