My sweet 10 year old has caught the cooking bug, and I couldn't be happier! Thanks to some very talented moms at our Coop, she's getting great instruction as well.
I got her permission to share one of her newest creations (adapted from a online recipe):
Baked Oatmeal, To GO
5 cups rolled oats
2 ripe bananas
1 tsp salt
5 Tbsp of Maple Syrup
2 2/3 cup water
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
plus - her secret weapon - 2/3 cup chocolate and butterscotch chips (combined together)
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease your muffin tin, or use paper liners.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all your dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients and mix the dry into it.
Pour into muffin tin, and bake for 20 min. She put on the broiler for the last 2 min to make the tops crispier.
Makes 2 dozen.
They were gone faster than you could say... "Breakfast's Ready"
