Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

The tiny tots whipped these chewy, chocolate chip, oatmeal cookies in about 20 minutes. Baking with kids is a great way for them to learn about counting and numbers. To avoid big messes we have them sit at the table in their booster seats and bring all the ingredients to the table. Then they each get a turn and thus we are also working on our waiting our turn. All great skills for the tots to learn about. I got the recipe from here, I have also pasted it below. We added 3/4 cup of raisins too! Happy baking! Ingredients: 1/2C unsalted butter, softened 1/2C granulated sugar 1/2C light brown sugar 1 large egg 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp cinnamon 3/4C all purpose flour 1 1/2C old fashioned oats 3/4C chocolate chips, plus extra for topping Directions: Preheat oven to 350°F.

guilt-free chocolate chip cookies

Yes, I said the magic words “guilt-free” now, if only I could apply that to my parenting skills. These cookies are actually made from kidney beans, which initially I thought was kind of gross, but surprisingly they were very yummy! I got the recipe from thatcleanlife, I also made double dark chocolate chip cookies using the same recipe but swamping the kidney beans for black beans and replaced the coconut flour with cacao powder. Ingredients: 1 can Kidney Beans (no salt added, drained and rinsed) 1/8 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk 1/8 cup All Natural Peanut Butter 2 tbsps Coconut Oil (melted) 1/2 cup Coconut Flour 4 tbsps Raw Honey 1/2 tsp Cinnamon 1/8 tsp Sea Salt 1/4 cup Organic Dark Chocolate Chips Directions: Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Measure out 1.5 cups kidney beans. Combine beans, almond milk, peanut butter and coconut oil together in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Add in coconut flour, honey, cinnamon and sea salt. Process again until creamy. Use a rubber spatula to …

Edible Flower Cookies

Not only do these look beautiful but they happen to taste great too! To top it off they are very easy to make! First you need a sugar cookie recipe (I tried making these gluten free as well and found that the cookie was a tad too crumbly). Materials Sugar Cookie Dough Edible Flowers (after searching high and low I found some at The Harvest Wagon) 1 egg beaten Paint Brush (used for food only) Directions After you’ve made your sugar cookies you want to put them in the oven for about three quarters of the time the recipe suggests. Once they’ve come out of the oven and cooled down a bit you will need to beat your egg in a small bowl with a fork. Then using your paint brush you want to coat your cookie with a bit of egg. Then place a flower on top of the cookie and brush it with some more egg to get the flower to lay “somewhat flat”. Sprinkle with a bit of sugar and voila! Put …
