My kids Love to bake!
I love them to bake when they have a great recipe that they can make by themselves and that contains healthy ingredients. Since they are all at different baking levels and endurance in the kitchen, we need the right recipe for the right kiddo. This one is my 7 year olds favorite recipe to make by himself and is a fabulous treat after playing in the snow all morning.
Takes about 10 minutes to make, depending on the focus😉
- 2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut
- 6 tbsp pure maple syrup or honey, you can also use 4 tbsp water with stevia to taste
- 4 tbsp virgin coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
Blend all ingredients in a food processor and process. Roll into balls. Set on plate and freeze until hard. Once hard you can enjoy as is or dip in chocolate if feeling fancy. YUM
