Amber's Baking Experience--YUM!

Thursday, June 27, 2013

So, my dear little daughter, Amber, was in a 'baking' mood this morning. She surfed the net last night and found a vegan recipe site & came across a recipe for Vegan Chocolate Muffins. She made them this morning. Rather than confuse her on how to make a recipe healthier I just let her make them as stated. Not a low-cal muffin, for sure, but OMG! They taste like Otis SpunkMeyer Double Chocolate Chip Muffins minus the chocolate chips. She wrote the recipe down but not the website, so I have NO idea where she got it from.

I put it into the Recipe Calculator. Here it is. DON'T blast me--I KNOW they could be healthier. When I make them again I will be subbing some of the ingredients--whole wheat flour for the white flour, maybe Splenda for the sugar or just cut the sugar in half, etc.

They were AWESOME!

And the finished product

And, of course, then we HAD to go swimming for the afternoon!

    A nice treat to kick of the summer!!! emoticon

My daughter bake for us last night too... not completely from scratch but she was thinking "making it healthy" mode... she added bananas, pineapple and wheat flour to a lemon cake mix (with 2 eggs)... Yummi!!!!

Recipe calculator is awesome! Love it too...

BTW - your daughter is a cutie, you can be very proud! I think sharing moment in the kitchen and being active with our kids is the best way to teach them healthy habits! emoticon To both of you!

    Those sound yummy! Way to go! Have you heard of chocolatecoveredKatie? She has a ton of recipes on her website and is also a vegan. I have tried a couple and there are so many more that I am going to try. Keep going! :)
