The kids start back at school in 5 more days (notice I said the KIDS and not me), and yes, I am counting. Holidays have been awesome but after 7 weeks it’s really time to get back into routine.
That routine also means more cooking for me. I have enjoyed taking a break from cooking sweets, mostly because I have been so focused on my fitness goals that I knew I needed no sweets in the house until I was at a comfortable place with them, and I am now there….so lucky kids get sweets again.
I am trying to avoid using honey, mainly because I can give them ‘sweet’ using other naturally sweet things that have more nutrients in them, and yes it’s still high in sugar so moderation is the key here. W has already started asking for honey on almost everything so that’s another reason to start using other sweeteners, like fruit.
I made Granola Bites yesterday, as a trial run for the kids’ lunch boxes and to see if I could get them to stick together like a biscuit instead of crumbling. Success! I took a bite of one, yes just one bite. I made them for the kids so they had to be the ones to like and approve of them, and they did! I have three out of twelve left.
Do you bake sweets for your kids? I need some more inspiration, what do you make for your kids?
