Healthy Cooking with Kids: 2 Recipes (Videos)

Making Healthy Granola with Kids (See recipe at end of post)

This recipe works for big or little kids. I shot this while making granola with my 2 year old and 6 year old. We make granola in large batches and store it for weeks. It also makes a great gift when presented in a mason jar with a homemade tag (another kid project). This recipe changes every time I make it depending on what is in the kitchen, so feel free to adapt and experiment. Kids love to do taste tests and make charts of the results!
