Last week, Wardeh at GNOWFGLINS was here talking about her new eBook Real Food Kids in the Kitchen – a terrific resource chock-full of helpful tips, strategies and age-appropriate activities for getting your kids excited about cooking wholesome food.
I thought it would be fun to share one of Wardeh’s recipes from the book and she agreed (thanks, Wardeh!). So after looking at the many choices, the boys and I decided to give her quick-n-easy nut butter cookies a try! After all, a key strategy for getting kids excited about cooking, especially if you have older kiddos, is to select a simple recipe that they’re certain to enjoy. And what do all kids love? COOKIES, of course!
So whether you’re just getting started, or have been cooking with your kiddos for years, this is a wonderfully easy and fun (not to mention, scrumptious) recipe to make together!
Real Food Kids in the Kitchen:
Nut Butter Cookies in Three Easy Steps!
Step One: The boys work as a team to add and mix all of the ingredients.
Step Two: My older son rolls the dough into small tablespoon-size cookie balls, while his little bro adds a few chocolate chips in the center. (The chocolate chips were their idea, because quote – “everything tastes better with chocolate!” It’s hard to argue with that logic!
Step Three: Bake and ENJOY! Now, it’s your turn to enjoy some fun in the kitchen with your kiddos!
P.S. If you missed my interview with Wardee, co-author of the best-selling Real Food Kids in the Kitchen eBook, I highly encourage you to pop over and check it out. In this exclusive interview, she shares her wisdom and passion for teaching children (and families) the joy of cooking real food, as well as provides a few helpful tips for getting your kids in the kitchen - which is, as you know, one of my passions as well!
