#wednesday --> baking with the tribe: Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

Today was baking day. We started a new schedule for the little ones this week, and so far, it's been working like a charm. I set Wednesdays aside for baking, cooking, teaching our kids the names of a wide variety of fruits and veggies and start some healthy eating habits. Of course, they end up covered in flour, sticky from the honey and all that jazz, but it's all worth it. I believe it's important to teach our kids  what are the best things to eat so, as they grow, they're aware of what they eat and can start making smart choices from their early stages. Today, we made some healthy oatmeal cookies. We don't use butter or sugar in them. Instead, we replaced butter for coconut oil and sweetened them with organic honey/agave instead of sugar. These little treats are delicious and a little chunk of goodness. We don't buy crackers for them anymore, since they can make their own snacks now! We had to use white whole wheat flour and agave, but I can't wait to go to the store and get some almond flour and molasses or maple syrup for our next batch. It's small changes that make the difference, so that's what we're doing these days: making small changes.
