As we welcome in fall we made warm, healthy, whole wheat, banana bread muffins. Top Chef Tuesday is so popular that we had to split up the kiddos into two groups; K-2 and 3-5.
Each kiddo was able to participate by adding the various ingredients (butter, apple sauce, honey, baking soda, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, etc.), mashing the bananas and mixing everything together to get a smooth batter. When it came to adding the dry ingredients we taught the kiddos how to level off the ingredient using the measuring cups to make sure we added the correct amount. The kids also learned that apple sauce can be a substitute for oil!
I have to say, I’ve seen improvement with the kids baking and cooking knowledge since we started Top Chef Tuesday. It is my hope that they are able to help bake and cook at home!
Stay tuned for more Top Chef Tuesday's & other fun activites happening at Bear Club!
