Easy Ways To Change Up These Spring Sweet Treats For Preschoolers 

Does your family have allergens? Do you just want healthy options? That’s fine! Did you know you can swap out a lot of ingredients in recipes?

  • For example instead of vegetable or canola oil you can use coconut oil or Greek yogurt. Don’t like processed all purpose flour? Coconut flour is also an option. Using whole grain flowers is a great option.
  • Don’t want to use milk chocolate in your cookies? Use dark chocolate instead.
  • So is more natural sugars like honey, coconut sugar, sugar in the raw, molasses, etc.
