Lyra loves to help in the kitchen, especially if it involves making HER SNACKS. At 20 months she likes to help measure out ingredients, mix everything up and be responsible for the QUALITY CONTROL. Because she likes to get her little hands into everything ans then straight into her mouth I've been trying very hard to find recipes that are egg free.
A few weeks ago we got busy in the kitchen and made a large batch of peanut butter banana cookies. Lyra helped to mash the bananas, measure in the ingredients and lick the peanut butter spoon!
These cookies are super easy to mix up, they take very little time to bake and freeze well too!
