Baking is one of my all-time favorite activities to do with Eben. No matter what we are whipping up in the kitchen, we always have fun. In addition to entertainment, baking with your children is a wonderful opportunity to teach them math and science skills, without them even knowing they are learning valuable lessons.
Here I share a divine recipe for one of Eben’s favorite homemade treats: vegan, organic, whole-wheat oatmeal cookies. He loves that they’re sweet — and I love that they include wholesome ingredients that are good for him, such as whole wheat and fruit.
