Who doesn’t love a plate of chicken fingers – and who doesn’t love guaranteed kid approved recipes? These chicken fingers have a secret though, they’re made with almond meal instead of flour which sounds crazy of course, but you can’t taste the almond. It just adds a little healthy touch to a favorite meal of kids everywhere, is gluten-free and there’s no shame in that!
