What are some good snacks for preschoolers that we can make together at preschool? Involving gadgets is a plus.

This year at co-op preschool, the teacher is asking us to involve the kids in the making of the daily snack. To lure them in she suggest using some of the many gadgets we have.
Items I have access to include, but are not limited to:
- waffle iron
- juicers (hand ones and a high-quality electric one)
- coffee maker
- popcorn air-popper
- Crock Pot
- ice shaver
- not-very-powerful microwave
- electric griddle
- pasta machine
- bread machine
- ice-cream maker
- George Foreman grill
- rice cooker
- stand mixer
- hand-cranked apple peeler
- banana slicer
- small children
We do not have a hotplate or oven, just a lousy microwave (but I could bring my better microwave in if necessary). The only way to boil water is in an electric kettle or the electric griddle. I can borrow many other tools, so don't let my list limit you. The kids don't get to use the sharp knives but I can do prep at home.
Snacks can't have any nuts or peanuts, should be vegetarian, shouldn't contain much egg (there can be small amounts, but no egg-centered dishes), and should be something four-year-olds would like to eat.
