Thirteen Baking Recipes That Are Easier Than Sourdough
If you’re like us (and the majority of the general population right now), stress baking has never tasted so good!
This is because, in times of change or crisis, it’s only natural to turn to baking. Why? It requires our complete attention.
Our hands are busy mixing, our mind is occupied calculating and recalculating measurements, and once we’ve poured our hearts into lightly greased pans, our eyes are then glued to tiny oven windows, watching and waiting for our creations to come to life.
In hopes of keeping yours and your kiddos hands and minds busy during these uncertain times, we’ve put together a downloadable recipe book that’s filled with delectable, easy-to-bake recipes using our super versatile Real Food Bar Mix.
From loaves and muffins, to bars and bites, there’s a sweet treat that everyone in your family will enjoy!
