We're in a bit of a habit of baking on a Sunday afternoon (2yo twins and me). Something like banana bread or carrot cake that I can fool myself is a bit healthy, and that ds can take a piece in packed lunches.
But with the weather warming up, I'm less inclined to put the oven on. Is there such a thing as fake-healthy refrigerator cake? Or any other no bake option?
I know cake isn't really healthy, of course, but I think kids should be allowed it all in moderation. However, I am not keen on super sweet chocolate syrup type things, and would rather make something we all eat.
I make these banana banana biscuits with my toddler and they only need 15-20 minutes in the oven so not too much time to warm up the room. I've been meaning to make these healthier crisp rice treats but haven't got round to it yet. They sound a great, healthier alternative...
Thanks, not convinced pavlova would survive a lunchbox, but quick bakes like biscuits or flapjacks a good option. Will investigate fruit tarts, prob with bought pastry which is somehow more forgiving of toddler's attention!
Oops sorry completely overlooked the lunchbox friendly bit, no I wouldn't suggest pavlova in that case! But yes, ready bought pastry and flan cases would be a quick non cook option for when we get those hot summer days
