These Kid-Friendly Baking Recipes are perfect for getting into the kitchen with your kids. They’re packed with vegetables, legumes, beans and more for healthy snacks the kids will love!
This round-up of kid-friendly baking recipes is another post that has been on my list for a while now. If you’ve been following for a while, you know I’m a big fan of boosting the nutrient content of your baked goods. I’m constantly adding vegetables, nuts and seeds, beans and legumes and more to my muffins, bars and cookies. And guess what? Kids love them!
Healthy Baking Recipes
I thought it might be handy to put all of my nutrient-packed baked good recipe links in one place so you can browse them! Here are almost 30 healthy baking recipes to get you started. That means you can grab your kids and head to the kitchen to make a new snack each week for the next several months. These recipes are also great for getting in the kitchen with kids! Many are made in a food processor and they can just dump everything in and blend! This Cuisinart 11 cup food processor is probably my favorite kitchen appliance (aff link).

This is fantastic! My 3 year old is used to cooking with his babysitter, so this will be something we can start doing now that we’re home together.
I’m also going to link to it on my class website as I think my fifth graders would enjoy these as well! Fractions in action!
This is such a great resource! Thanks Lindsay!!
Thanks for doing this!

Thank you so much for this! What a great resource to have as baby #3 will be starting solids in the next month or so and a great way to use up the random bags of lentils I have in the pantry during this social distancing 🙂
yay! hope they’re a big hit!
