Children should always be a part of the family cooking and food preparation process. It teaches them concepts that are literally life-saving and essential for survival. It also allows children to absorb and pick up skills in the most natural and relaxed environment.
They learn science and math when mixing ingredients and measuring portions, form healthy habits, develop their imagination and patience, and get accustomed to making and fixing mistakes. They also feel proud and their confidence soars when they can contribute and accomplish something meaningful with their own hands.
One of our favorite healthy treats is bliss balls. There are literally hundreds of variations of bliss Ball recipes out there. Bliss balls are very easy to make for even the youngest chefs since they don’t require any baking. Children can create their own recipes and experiment with different flavors. They also enjoy making a ball out of dough and rolling coating them in coconut flakes, sugar, or sprinkles. The recipe can vary and adapt according to what you have currently stocked in your pantry. The most common ingredients are dried fruits, seeds and nuts, coconut oil, coconut flakes, and cocoa powder.
One important thing – these bliss balls are seriously addictive. And I am not kidding. Allergies warning – this recipe contains gluten, dairy, nuts, eggs – you name it.
