Unplug your kids...Kitchen

I found this weeks theme to be fun and easy for the unplug your kids. I had bought this new cookbook for the boys the day before she shared the new theme. See it even has Kitchen in the title, perfect right.

So I set about with the boys to make a special lunch with recipes from the book. The cookbook is set up really well. The kids could do everything pretty much everything there own. It is also filled with activities that will keep kids active, plus quizes and facts. The boys wanted to share the recipes with everyone in case you wanted to make them to.

First ....The Sky Is Falling Apples! Wraps
1 small banana
1/3 cup peanut butter
4 (7 to 8 inch) whole wheat or white flour tortillas
1 cup chopped apples
1.) Put the banana and mash. Add the peanut butter and mix.
2.) Spread the peanut butter over the tortilla. Sprinkle with apple. Tighlty roll them up and cut in half. Wrap tighlty in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. (just to help the flavors blend more together)
Next up the drink....Tropical Fruit Smoothie
Ingredients -
1 medium banana
1 1/2 cups of cut up fresh fruit (your choice)
1 (6 to 8 ounce) carton of vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup milk
Honey (optional)
Fresh fruit (for the top, optional)
1.) Put all ingredients in blender and mix well.
Finally (and the best part) Dessert... Disappearing Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup toasted rolled oats
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all purposed flour
1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips (or like we did, left over candy bars from halloween)
1.) Put the oats in a food processor and grind until smooth.
2.) Beat butter until smooth. Add in brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined. Add in the yogurt, eggs, and vanilla. Mix until combined. Mix in the flour and oats. Finally add in the chocolate.
3.) Preheat oven to 375. On an ungreased cookie sheet drop the doaugh by the teaspoon. Leave a couple inches in between. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until cookie bottoms are browned. Remove and cool on wire racks.
I hope that you all enjoy a wonderful meal. Make sure to check back in for next weeks theme. Until then look over here at everyone else's projects.
