Welcome to the River School Blog!
Summer is all sunshine and outdoor activities… Unless, of course, it’s raining outside. I used to love rainy days as a child, because that meant having all sorts of indoor fun, like building forts out of blankets and baking with my mom in the kitchen. Some of my fondest memories of the latter include helping her mix dough for cookies, or peel apples for cobbler. I will never forget those special days with my mom, and I still get the itch to bake when the forecast looks bleak.
Try creating some rainy day memories with your own little one and this very simple bread recipe (tweaked and adapted from TheGuiltyKitchen.com). I like it because it’s easy to make, very healthy (but tasty), and… It turns green after you bake it!**
**The chlorogenic acid (chlorophyll) in sunflower seeds reacts with the baking soda/powder when baked, causing the green color when the cake cools. This is completely harmless!
