Lunchbox Solutions For Kids
Who Like a Touch of Sweetness
Try making homemade cereal bars, muffins, banana bread, or scones. All of these recipes freeze really well. Just make a batch and freeze in individual servings. When it comes time to packing their lunches, your children can just pop one into their lunch box.
Or how about these yummy little wonders?
Here’s what you will need:
- 3/4 cup (180 mL) all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp (5 mL) each baking soda and salt
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar
- 1/3 cup (80 mL) liquid honey
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups (500 mL) granola
- 2 cups (500 mL) shredded Canadian Cheddar
- 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) golden raisins
Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). In medium bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt.
In large mixer bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy; gradually beat in sugar and honey. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in dry ingredients, granola, Canadian Cheddar cheese and raisins; mix well (batter should be stiff).
Drop tablespoons (15 mL) of batter, 1 dozen at a time, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, onto ungreased baking sheets. With floured fingers, pat into 2 inch (5 cm) circles.
Bake 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheets immediately; let cool on wire racks.
