  • 2 pieces of toast
  • 20 mins prep 20 mins total
  • Image of something.

Ingredients:

Sweet Tic-Tac-Toe Toast

  • 1 slice of whole grain bread (larger slices are easier to work with)
  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • Envirokidz Koala Crisp cereal
  • 1 Banana, cut into rounds
  • Strawberries, cut into rounds

Savory Tic-Tac-Toe Toast

  • 1 slice of whole grain bread (larger slices are easier to work with)
  • 2 tbsp hummus
  • 1 carrot, peeled
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 cucumber, sliced

Directions:

  1. Prepare fruits and vegetables to make your tic-tac-toe board and X’s and O’s.
    Sweet: Use a straw to cut out the centers of your strawberry rounds. These will be your O’s. Use an “X shaped” cookie cutter to cut X’s out of your banana rounds.
    Savory: Use a vegetable peeler to slice the carrot lengthwise to create thin slices of carrot. Slice the peelings lengthwise to create long, thin lines. Trim them to fit the size of the bread you’re using. You’ll only need 4 pieces to create one tic-tac-toe toast. Use an “O shaped” cookie cutter to cut O’s out of your cucumber slices. Alternatively, use mini cucumbers and use a straw to cut out the seeded centers to make O’s. Cut off the sides of a red bell pepper. Try to slice the pepper in such a way that each piece is as flat as possible. Cut away any of the white pit. Use an X-shaped cookie cutter to cut X’s out of the red bell pepper.
  2. Toast whole grain bread.
  3. Spread with 2 tbsp natural peanut butter (for a sweet version) or 2 tbsp hummus (for a savory version).
  4. Assemble your Tic-Tac-Toe board.
    Sweet: Arrange Envirokidz Koala Crisp on peanut butter to create 9 boxes in a 3×3 layout.
    Savory: Lay carrot strips on hummus to create 9 boxes in a 3×3 layout.
  5. Time to play and eat!

NOTES

Playing without “X” and “O” cookie cutters: You don’t need X and O shaped pieces to play this edible game. Use colors to differentiate between players (ex. Strawberry rounds vs. banana rounds, or cucumber rounds vs. carrot rounds.)

Other fruits and veggie playing pieces: Feel free to substitute your preferred fruits and vegetables for game pieces. Apples work well for a sweet version. Radish is great for a savory version.
