img_3904

Because Honeycrisp apples do not store well, kids can make salads, pies and cakes, as well as eating them fresh, when these delicious apples are in season. Kids love these yummy cupcakes for breakfast, snack, and dessert.  Honeycrisp apples were grafted at the University of Minnesota in 1960 and have been a growing in popularity ever since. Kids can grow a dwarf apple tree variety that grows well in their climate in a container on the patio. Kids can preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl whisk 1 ¾ cup organic whole wheat pastry flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, ½ tsp sea salt, ¼ tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp ginger, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and 1/8 tsp cardamom. In a small bowl mix ¼ cup organic cane sugar, ¼ cup applesauce, ¼ cup organic grape seed oil, 3 tbsp maple syrup, 5.3 oz soy yogurt, 1 tsp vanilla. Kids can small chop one organic Honeycrisp apple and add ¼ cup of chopped organic walnuts to the large bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the large bowl and mix with the dry ingredients. Divide the batter into 12 muffin cups lined with paper liners. Bake 20 minutes and cool before serving. Kids can freeze the muffins for future lunch box treats.
