I was given the opportunity to try two great products from King Arthur!
K.A.F. Kids Chocolate Chipper Muffin Mix: I love that King Arthur makes a line of mixes to get kids excited about cooking. The Chocolate Chipper Muffin Mix allows you and you child(ren) to bake 6 delicious muffins. The directions are illustrated and simple so it was easy for my 4-year-old, Bella, to follow along.
Results: These muffins were VERY tasty. I brought one to work in the morning and I could not wait to get home to have another one because I was craving more all day long. My daughter and husband also really enjoyed them. My son decided to give up chocolate for Lent so he was not able to give his review. Bella gave these a big thumbs up and since Jackson abstained from voting, I will give a big thumbs up for him!
Pros: I really appreciated the fact that it only made 6 muffins. It is the perfect size mix for a family of 4! Plus, only having to fill 6 muffin cups was much less intimidating for my daughter. The muffin mix contains no artificial preservatives, each muffin has 4g of protein, and they are DELICIOUS!
King Arthur Unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour: The second product I reviewed was King Arthur's Whole Wheat Flour. This flour is nutritionally equivalent to traditional whole wheat flour but lighter in color and flavor. I have been trying to find ways to incorporate healthy foods into my children's diets. Since they tend to be picky eaters, this is a great way to "sneak" some nutrition into their food.
I tried out a mint brownie recipe supplied by King Arthur (minus the chocolate drizzle). The color of the flour is darker than your typical white flour, but I doubt that it would change the color of any final baking outcomes. I used it as an ingredient and also used it with my shortening to help prevent the brownies from sticking to the pan. The flour performed perfectly for both purposes.
Results: The brownies were fantastic! I took them to a social gathering and received many compliments. No one was able to tell that the flour was whole wheat, proving that you can bake with a nutritionally-based product without sacrificing taste. The brownies received two thumbs up from my kids (my son's decision to give up chocolate for Lent was very short lived) and I received many compliments from others who consumed them. This recipe was awesome and is definitely going in my file. The whole wheat flour will also be replacing my white flour from now on!
Pros: Healthier than regular while flour, tastes the same, performs well, contains fiber and protein
