DECEPTIVELY DELICIOUS... & lovin' it!

Ok I think most of us try to do this any way with veggies our kids won't touch with a ten foot pole --- aka anything that is green! This book has so many good Ideas on how to include veggies into regular items your kids probably eat on a regular basis as well as some new items that I would not have ever thought of!

ones' we've tried this week in the Stokes Home that have passed the Child test!

ALOHA CHICKEN Kebabs

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium high heat. When the pan is hot add the oil.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup brown sugar
6 tbsp Butter
1/2 Banana puree
1/2 cup zucchini puree
1 lg egg white
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 - 
coat 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray

in a bowl combine flour, oats, 
baking soda, salt & cinnamon & stir to mix

In a large bowl beat the sugar and softened butter 
with a wooden spoon until just combined - do not over mix. 
Add the Banana & Zucchini purees and the egg white and stir just to blend

Add the flour mixture, raisins and walnuts

Drop the dough by heaping tbsp onto the baking sheets, leaving about 1 inch between. Bake until golden brown 12 - 15 mins. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 4-5 mins - just until they are firm enough to handle - then transfer to rack to cool.


PS - my improvisation - we had no raisins - & Jeb just doesn't like them
Instead of raisins we added 1/2 cup of craisins - and mini chocolate chips
