Gluten-free pretzel crusted chicken nuggets are a must-have for parties, school lunches or a weeknight meal. Did I mention these babies are also grain-free and soooo good!
When I was kid my mom would always make chicken fingers crusted in whatever she had on hand. Pretzels were one of my favorites. I just love that salty crunch with the chicken. So good.

It hasn't been too hard to find gluten-free pretzels, but gluten-free and grain-free? That was impossible until I found FitJoy.
FitJoy Pretzels and Bars
FitJoy pretzels taste so good, you wouldn't even know they were gluten and grain-free (which means no corn!). They have that perfect salty crunch with just a touch of honey and no icky stuff- no preservatives, nothing artificial. My toddler can munch on these and I have zero mom guilt.
Plus, on top of using tasty real food ingredients, FitJoy gives back to the community by donating to a portion of each purchase to help to feed underprivileged children
They also make protein bars and mini-sized protein bars (that actually taste like what they say on the package! Hello, healthy lemon bar!) which are great for snacks and lunches.
