How to make Allergy-Friendly Snack Board (Easy Recipe)


The holidays are here, and that means one very special thing: it’s officially snack board season. Snack boards have become the go-to dish for celebrating special occasions in the last few years, but they’re especially popular during holiday season for their ability to feed a crowd rich, decadent foods in small but beautiful portions.

The problem is, the typical snack board (also called charcuterie board) isn’t very friendly to those with food allergies. Natureul is here to change that with their line of organic, all-natural products–they’re allergy friendly (no gluten, nuts, or dairy) and never include added sugar or artificial ingredients, so you can snack freely and share confidently.

The stars of this board are Natureul’s Granola and Tigernut Butter–the perfect pair for any snacktime.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Total time: 10 minutes

Serves 3-4


  • 1 ½ cups Natureul Granola in your favorite flavor
  • 2 apples in the variety of your choice (we used Honeycrisp)
  • 1 cup fresh or dried cranberries (or blueberries, raisins, grapes, cherries, or other small tart fruit)
  • ½ cup dried figs
  • 1 wheel non-dairy brie
  • 2-3 celery stalks, sliced into 4-inch rib pieces
  • Natureul Tigernut Butter in your favorite flavor
  • 1 16-oz package gluten free crackers of your choice
  • 1 large cucumber, sliced into ½ inch rounds
  • 1 14-oz brick extra firm tofu, sliced into ⅛ inch squares and pan-seared on both sides
  • ½ cup salted roasted tigernuts


  1. Start by anchoring the larger items like the brie wheel, bowl of granola, and dip dish of tigernut butter. You’ll want to stagger them on the board so there’s plenty of space between them for snacks.
  2. Fill in the empty space from one side to the other, fanning out your larger ingredients like the tofu, crackers, apples, celery, and cucumbers.
  3. Use the smallest items, like the cranberries and tigernuts, to fill in any remaining space.
  4. Snack and enjoy!

How to Store Allergy-Friendly Snack Boards

To store the snack board, you’ll have to break down and sort the ingredients, store in airtight containers, and refrigerate as necessary.

Tips for Making an Allergy-Friendly Snack Board

Keep ratios in mind. Knowing how much of each type of ingredient to add to make sure everyone is satisfied is key. The general guidelines are: 3-4 ounces of cheese (or non-dairy cheese alternatives) and proteins per person, 2-3 different types of fruit at an ounce each per person, 4-8 ounces of carby snacks like crackers, chips, or bread per person, and enough filler ingredients like nuts so that everyone can have a small handful.

Ask about dietary restrictions ahead of time. Ask the host (or your guests, if you’re the one hosting) if and what kind of food allergies they have so you can be prepared. Separate common allergens (like cheese, soy-based ingredients, and nuts or nut-based ingredients) into separate containers to prevent cross-contamination.

If you’re taking it to go for a potluck, dinner party, or holiday gathering, you can make it in a baking pan for easy, no-mess transportation. Just arrange, place lids on things that can be lidded, and cover the top tightly with plastic wrap. Make sure the pan remains level while you’re carrying it, and place it on the floor or in the trunk of your vehicle to reduce shifting or risk of sliding off a seat.
