Kid-Friendly Recipes

Try one of the following recipes as an after-school snack or on a weekend:

1.  Pigs in a Blanket

  • 1 pkg. (8) Croissant rolls
  • 4 European Smoked Wieners

Open the package of croissants and separate them. Cut the wieners in half (cutting across the wiener). Wrap each section of wiener with a croissant, closing up the ends. Bake in the oven at 350º for approx. 12 – 15 minutes, until the crust is browned.


2.  Frozen Fruit Skewers with Honey-Yogurt Dipping Sauce

  • 6 Bamboo skewers
  • I cup fresh fruit pieces (grapes, berries, pineapple chunks)
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons honey

Place the fruit on the skewers. Freeze the skewers in an airtight container or zip-lock freezer bag for at least 5 hours (until frozen solid). Just before serving, mix together yogurt and honey and serve with frozen skewers.


3.  2 Ingredient Pancakes

  • 3 small ripe bananas
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten

Optional: berries, yogurt, maple syrup

Mash the bananas well.  Whisk in the eggs until well mixed.  (The ratio should be approximately 1/3 cup of banana per egg).  Heat a non-stick frying pan over a low-medium heat.  Pour in 1/3 of a cup of the batter.  Cook until bubbles form all over the surface and flip.  Cook a further 1-2 minutes and serve.

If you wish, use berries to decorate the pancakes and add maple syrup or yogurt for added taste.


4.  2 Ingredient Macaroons

  • 500g (approx. 2¼ cups) flaked coconut
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350º.  Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside.  In a bowl, combine the coconut and sweetened condensed milk.  Drop tablespoon-sized balls of the mixture onto the cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 –12 minutes or until golden brown.
