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.

These babies are just irresistible. Serve them with ketchup or for an adult spin, you have got to try my Greek Yogurt herb dipping sauce. You will be using these gluten-free pretzel crusted chicken nuggets to swipe up every last bit of it!
