Strawberry Shortcake w/ Whole Grain Biscuit – RECIPE | This is a light, low-fat, low-sugar dessert that definitely hits the sweet spot! We made this recipe in my Kids in the Kitchen class, and it was a huge hit!
You only need about 20 minutes to make this stress-free recipe with your kids! You might need to allow a few extra minutes depending on the number of children you are working with and also their age/developmental level.
I can’t say enough about the benefits of cooking WITH your kiddos! Besides the skills they learn and the proof that kids who help prepare healthy foods are more open to EAT healthy foods… something I have seen EVERY time I teach a class is the PRIDE these kids feel when that recipe is completed, and they look at it and say, ‘Look what I MADE!!!’ Their smiling faces beam with pride. What a simple way to give your child the chance to feel such accomplishment!
[Tweet “Cooking WITH our kids is a simple gift to help them feel EXCITEMENT for what THEY have created!”]
I promise, no matter how ‘imperfect’ their creation looks, no matter how many spills or dishes there are to clean afterward, seeing their faces light up this way makes it ALL worth it.
This recipe is from my cookbook: “The Family Table Cookbook: Whole Grain Pancake & Baking Mix | 30+ Recipes, ONE Simple Mix” which is full of simple, healthy baked treats. All of the recipes are fruit- or honey-sweetened only and use my simple whole grain mix.
Go here to get the baking mix recipe – you’ll need it for this shortcake recipe, but also you can keep a sealed container of this in the pantry & use it to make pancakes, muffins, cookies, and this yummy shortcake really quickly, even when you’re super busy.
