What happens when an Urban Retro Fitter Mom encourages her kids to help out in the kitchen? Yummy goodness!
Teaching your kids to be comfortable in the kitchen and make food that is wholesome and nutritious is one of the best gifts a mom can pass along to her children before they start leaving the nest. They need to know some of the basics and starting with a great recipe and simple ingredients is a great way to start.
This is a recipe inspired by my great friend, Sue Gray , owner and creator of Goodness Gray’s-cious Granola. It is one of our favorite and something our older kids who have already moved out of the house still make for themselves.
Trust me… I know…most of the time making something is easier and less messy when the mom does it herself, but kids need to spend time in the kitchen, measuring, mixing, baking. Life skills need to be taught.
Whether you live almonds, pumpkin seeds, cashews , mango, Craisins or dried pineapple, you can make something that you and your family will enjoy. Use what you have and create something amazing.
