Teach your kids how to modify recipes

When my kids ask, “Can I?” I usually say yes. The way I figure, if they are asking and not sneaking then it’s most likely productive. Now— “Can I have a cookie? Can I do something dangerous or bad for me? Can I watch a movie?” These are not the kind of can I’s I’m talking about. “Can I make banana bread and modify the recipe so it’s healthy and allergen free?” Yes- that’s the yes…

I’d like to share with you a DELICIOUS clean banana bread recipe that my daughters, Olivia and Isabella made completely by themselves. The took a recipe they found in an old cook book and modified it to take out gluten, sugar, and eggs (I normally would have put eggs but we were out and Sam is allergic anyway).

Please share this with your friends and their kids!
