I’m looking for a recipe suggestion that I can make with my children’s class. 

 

I will have a small group of children that are supposed to make it – I am just there to assist.  We have an hour to make/bake it.

 

Mostly likely I would need to make a double recipe because it needs to feed 40 children as part of their snack the following day.

 

It must be healthy and made from scratch.  (It doesn’t need to fulfill all nutritional requirements as the school provides hard boiled eggs, cheese, fruit, veggies, etc. for snack too.)

 

There are no children with allergies.

 

I have a lot of the following in my freezer, so if I can use any of this it would be great:

blackberries

blueberries

strawberries

rhubarb

fillo dough

whole wheat flour

 

TIA

I thought of that.  They recently made a strawberry/blueberry crisp, but I could always have them make another.  I was thinking of a strawberry/rhubarb crisp.

 

I also have a lot of canned pumpkin and was thinking about pumpkin bread.  I believe they recently made pumpkin muffins.

Pumpkin bread is good, too - more seasonal.

my kids love making these banana muffins http://www.catcancook.com/awesome-banana-muffin-recipe/

 

I use the same recipe for apple and cinnamon ones, just replacing the banana with a couple of home made apple sauce (just peeled apples cubed and cooked till soft) and a teaspoon of cinnamon.

 

I haven;t tried them with 100% whole wheat flour, I usually use part whole wheat and part plain depending on what I have in stock.

They look good...I will need to try them out.  I have 'muffin-phobia'...my muffins never turn out very well.  (soggy in the middle, or dry, or tasteless)  I gave up on muffins years ago and make quick breads or cakes instead.

 

A friend of mine gave me this apple cranberry cake recipe but I haven't tried it yet:

 

Apple Cake Recipe with Cranberries

 

Dry ingredients:

 

1 cup sorghum flour

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

1/4 cup tapioca starch

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1 cup xylitol

 

Wet ingredients:

 

1 egg

1/2 cup grapeseed oil

1/2 cup applesauce

1/2 cup almond milk

1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons raw honey

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 tsp molasses

 

Add-ins:

 

3 cups chopped apples

1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries

 

Topping:

 

Sprinkle of xylitol and cinnamon

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

 

Grease a 9X13 pan.

 

In a large mixing bowl, use a whisk to combine your dry ingredients: sorghum flour, buckwheat and tapioca flours, xanthan gum, baking soda and baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, xylitol. Set aside.

 

In a smaller bowl combine the wet ingredients: egg, grapeseed oil, applesauce, vanilla, almond milk, vinegar, honey, vanilla and molasses. Whisk till combined.

 

Add the wet into the dry ingredients and stir until a smooth batter forms. If you need a tad more liquid add a tablespoon at a time to achieve a smooth- but not too thin- cake batter.

 

Add half the apples and cranberries and stir in (keep some for the top).

 

Scoop the batter into the prepared 9X13 pan and smooth evenly. Add the remaining chopped apples and cranberries and press into the batter.

 

Sprinkle lightly with xykitol and cinnamon.

 

Bake in the center of the preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes until golden around the edges and firm in the center.

 

Cool.

askew,  Those look great!  I do not think they have made pretzels lately.  The apple pie bites are wonderful but we would not have time to make them in class.

 

I was planning on pumpkin bread.  It is easy and we can make three loaves.  However, they have had it several times lately.  Plus, my son said it is sort of 'boring'.  A dad was in today teaching them how to make crepes and various fillings.  'Boring baking' is fine with me - I need something simple and fool-proof!

 

I'm going to try the pretzels this weekend at home.  I think it would be a great in-class baking project.  And even though they have done it before...only a small group of children bake each time so not everyone has had a chance to make pretzels.
