Make your own Easy Bake Oven Mix recipes, healthier & from scratch – Homemade Mixes

I got the idea for this blog post because last month we bought our youngest daughter a very nice used Easy Bake oven at a price we could not pass up. It of course came with no mixes so I went to see how much they were, between the cost of the mixes & the ingredients I knew right away no way was I going to teach my daughter to bake that way.Easy bake

So I started searching & right away discovered that you could not only make your own mixes or you could use normal cake mixes. I must admit my family calls boxed cake mixes cardboard & plastic cakes because of how they taste & whats in them, So I knew I would need to look more into the from scratch mixes I even created a Pinterest Board for just this purpose. What I discovered was there were a lot (lots & lots) of from scratch ideas for the little oven, but they were still lacking healthier ingredients. After all even our sweets we use healthful quality products. Baking with the Easy Bake Oven can be a great time to teach your child that even sweets can be made better.

So I have adapted some of our favorite recipes & wanted to share them here for those in search of healthier alternatives to use in the Easy Bake Oven so you can teach your kids better eating habits.

Ingredients:

For baking in the Easy Bake oven we use the same quality, healthful ingredients I have shared in recipe after recipe here on my blog (my recipes category).

Sugar: I use Organic sugar, we also sometimes combine other natural sweeteners or just use a natural sweetener other than sugar such as Yacon syrup, Raw honey, black strap molasses &/or Real maple syrup for these recipes. If you decide to use a liquid sweetener such as Yacon, raw honey, Pure maple syrup or Molasses add a bit extra dry ingredients &/or a bit less of other wet ingredients.

Flour: I use Organic Einkorn Flour or another organic flour.

Shortening or Oil: I use Coconut oil, Organic Palm oil or Palm Shortening.

Salt: I use natural unrefined pink Himalayan salt.

Milk (or water): Use almond milk, raw milk, goat milk , coconut milk or water.

Frosting: Go to my blog post here & I have 2 frosting recipes, Simple buttercream frosting & Simple Shortening frosting.
