Fruit & fun bagel sandwich ideas

It’s back to school time friends!  Is anyone else excited? 😉 In total transparency, I’m happy to have the kids back in school.  I love the routine for them and I love being able to get my routine back as well. One of those things we started doing again is making school lunches the night before.  It’s not hard to do, and saves a ton of time in the morning, but it is hard to keep coming up with ways to make lunch-time fun.  Because of that,  I want to help you beat the lunch-box blues with 2 creative, allergy-friendly, sandwich recipes using the classic bagel flavors of blueberry and cinnamon raisin which are new to Canyon Bakehouse.

Last year, my mouth was in heaven as I was reviewed 3 delicious bagels from Canyon Bakehouse.  In case you missed my review or if you’ve never heard of this company, let me give you a quick recap.  When co-founder Christi Skow was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2007, the Canyon Bakehouse mission to make high-quality, great-tasting gluten-free breads began. Frustrated by gluten-free breads that lacked in taste and nutritional value, Christi, her husband, Josh, and their friend and Master Baker, Ed Miknevicius, set out to bake breads that were free from gluten and other allergens, but held the taste, texture and feeling of “real” bread. You can read the whole review here.  Basically what it comes down to is that these are the best Gluten-free bagels out there!

Blueberry Bagel

The first fruit-filled bagel sandwich uses the original gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and nut-free blueberry bagel.  I know you’ve missed having a bagel for breakfast! I like to call it a Berry Good Bagel Sandwich since it was inspired by my daughter, who basically will eat several pints of berries if I let her.  The idea is quite simple but the result is a beautiful bagel sandwich, perfect for both kids and adults alike.  Slather on your allergy-friendly cream cheese (we used Daiya) then top it off with sliced kiwi & fresh berries such as blackberries, blueberries & strawberries.

Cinnamon Raisin

Cinnamon Raisin bagels are always in high demand in our house and now that we have a dairy-free and allergy-friendly one available, I happily can appease this request.  But instead of just eating a bagel with cream cheese, I wanted to “jazz” it up for you and create something a little more fun.  Hence, this creamy Apple-icious fruity bagel sandwich.  My kids cringed their noses when I told them the combination but those cringes quickly disappeared after 1 bite!  Smooth vegan cream cheese, crunchy slices of organic apple, a sloppy layer of safe no-nut spread (SunButter is our fav!) and sliced bananas = absolute sandwich bliss!

Do you have a favorite bagel flavor?  How about fixin’s?  Share your answers below and I’d love for you to include your most creative bagel sandwich toppings.
