My daughters love the Food Network and food magazines. They’re learning how to adapt recipes they find to use nutrient-dense ingredients. A few weeks ago, Abby found a recipe for Chocolate Mug Cakes she wanted to try.
The recipe called for white flour, white sugar, and a microwave oven, so she adapted it herself using healthier ingredients and a regular oven. The result is … fantastic!
I let her write the entire recipe out for me, so the instructions came straight from her. This would be a fun recipe to let your kids try!Print
