Note from Laura:
I am so excited to share one of my favorite recipes with you this month—No-Bake Granola Bars. These sweet granola bars are completely customizable and are so tasty!
This class will teach you new skills, create delicious food, and be tons of fun. There are a few things I want you to know before we start this adventure:
Please review the recipe BEFORE purchasing your food for the week. You can always customize your recipes—you can choose different types of ingredients to fit your dietary needs! Feel free to modify the recipes per your preference and dietary restrictions. I can’t promise it will come out exactly like mine but at least you will like it! If you are unsure if your substitution will work, you can always check in with me too.
The easiest way to set yourself up for success is to be prepared. A few minutes before class, look at your recipe and grab all the ingredients and tools you’ll need. I also recommend printing out the recipe if you are able.
We will use the stove and oven, as well as sharp knives. If you feel nervous, ask an adult in your household for help if someone is home.
Everyone’s No-Bake Granola Bars will be completely unique! I like to add coconut flakes and sunflower seeds to mine. I recommend checking out the AMAZING bulk section at the co-op to see what nuts, seeds, or dry fruit you want to add. Bringing your own mason jar and buy just what you need, without creating additional packaging waste. Don’t be afraid! Give it a try.
You can always access this note as well as the food list, supply list, and recipe in this folder:
That’s all for now! I hope that you have a great time in this class and if you have any questions, please let me know!
Presenter, Laura Carbonneau will share valuable cooking skills that build confidence in the kitchen while making delicious and nutritious foods. Children will learn everything from measuring and knife skills to various cooking techniques and garnishing.
Let’s beat this cold weather with a more festive, warm weather treat. This Mango Guacamole will transport you to a tropical beach and warm, sunny days. Plus is a great snack to make for game day!
This class will teach you new skills, create delicious food, and be tons of fun.
This event is free, but registration is required. Registrants will receive the recipe, shopping list, and supply list prior to the class. This series is designed for students in grades 3 – 12, but it’s recommended that children in grades 3 – 5 have adult supervision.
