St.George YMCA-YWCA Before and After School Cookbook
Breakfast CookiesThis was given to us by one of our families. I found it in our recipe book from 2012. *If using dark pans decrease temperature by 25F
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies with SmartiesThis is our favorite! *If using dark pans decrease temperature by 25F
Valentine CookiesI thought these could be sweeter. Make sure they are baked well or else they taste pasty. Was fun to make cookies with the kids, like playing with playdough.
Strawberry and Oat SconeThese scones are versatile, you can use other kinds of fruit, cinnamon and raisin, maybe even try garlic and cheese (replace the orange with garlic and strawberries with cheese). *If using dark pans decrease temperature by 25F
Cheesy Biscuit*Original recipe called for sharp/old/strong cheese and water. We used marble cheese and buttermilk. You can use different flavours. Replace the cheese with berries, or raisins and add cinnamon. *If using dark pans decrease temperature by 25F
Apple Bread*Original recipe said to bake for 1 hour and our loaves came out very burnt (but the middles were delicious).
Strawberry Bars*If using a dark pan, decrease oven temperature by 25F. * Feel free to use more butter/margarine than the recipe calls for. Although delicious I thought these were a little too crumbly. *Original recipe called for 3/4 Cup Jam instead of fresh strawberries.
Kool-aid playdoughWe found this specific recipe for kool-aid playdough. It's very similar to other plain playdough recipes. You can make this one or just add 2 packages of kool-aid powder to your favourite playdough recipe.
Macaroons*This was a special treat before spring break *You can drizzle chocolate on top and gently press and candy into the cookie after they are baked *Recipe was found at realsimple.com
Banana, Fruit Oat Bars3 large ripe bananas 3 Cups traditional oats (we used large flakes) 1/2 Cup chopped dried fruit 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
We found our recipes in old cookbooks, from friends, and from some websites like yummly.com, allrecipes.com, kidshealth.org. We altered all these recipes to make them healthier and unique. All pictures are of food we made.
***Please decrease oven temperature by 25F if you are using dark pans for any of these recipes***
