Since I had a plan this week, baking has been happening. The girls were so excited to help out and this recipe is really easy to let them. It takes a bit of doing, so they lost interest after a while, but it was fun while it lasted.
They made for a wonderful bedtime snack with some apples and cheese. And the girls enjoyed them for a snack at school. I changed the recipe quite a bit, so this version has dried apples, golden raisins, sunflower seeds, honey, vanilla extract, oats, oat flower, cinnamon, almond butter, and some other baking basics. I’m so happy the kids like them.
Then I made some spiced pear muffins. This time I wanted to bake alone and was halfway through when my munchkin wanted to help. I refused to let her and it was a bit upsetting, but we snuggled and she felt better. Later, she remarked, while eating muffins, that she had no idea I could bake such good food. I laughed and realized how long it has been since I’ve really baked from scratch. I spent years perfecting a lot of these recipes and it’s about time I start using them again.
