Yesterday we baked. We haven’t done much of that lately. My 4 year old wanted to make some biscuits, so I helped her to choose some whole food ingredients from our pantry.
She chose bananas (frozen), sultanas, coconut, almond meal and oats.
Spooning in the ingredients.
Mixing the ingredients all together with a wooden spoon to start with, then hands were used to mould the biscuit dough and was then put onto a baking tray and straight in the oven for approx 20 minutes.
After baking biscuits I asked my 4 year old if she would like to help me make some date, almond and coconut balls. Pitted dates, almond meal and a small amount of dessicated coconut was mixed up in a blender and then moulded into ball shapes then coated in coconut and put in a glass bowl and straight into the fridge to chill.
We kept half of the date, almond and coconut balls for ourselves and put the other half in a glass jar as part of a birthday present for a family member.
Edited: 5th May 2016. My 4 year old and I made another batch of these to add as a lunch box snack. As my children’s Montessori school has a ‘no nut policy’ we swapped the almond meal for cacao powder (raw powder). They tasted great.
