Recipe Tweaks and Alternatives
Brownies are a versatile treat that can be customised by simply sneaking in or removing a few ingredients. Here are some suggestions on how to tweak this recipe and make it your own:
- Mix up the nuts. If you're not a fan of walnuts, feel free to swap them out for your favourite nut. Pecans or hazelnuts would be a great alternative.
- Add some spice. Give your brownies a bit of warmth and depth by adding a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg to the batter.
- Swap out the flour. If you or your child has a gluten sensitivity, you can substitute the spelt flour for a gluten-free alternative, like almond or oat flour.
- Change up the chocolate. You can experiment with different types of chocolate to change the flavour profile of the brownies. Milk chocolate, white chocolate, or even flavoured chocolate bars would all work well!
- Get creative with names. Brownies are a great opportunity to get creative with names that are sure to make your kids smile. Why not try "Choco-Loco Monster Bites," "Fudge-tastic Unicorn Squares," or "Superhero Choco-Chips"? The possibilities are endless, so let your imagination run wild and come up with a name that suits your child's unique personality.
Remember, the goal is to make mealtime fun and enjoyable for your little munchkin. With a little creativity and imagination, you can turn these brownies into a favourite treat that your child will look forward to eating every day. And don’t forget to serve them in WMBT Snackies for added flair!
Get The Kids Involved
Baking with your kids is a fun way to spend quality time together, and it also teaches them important life skills like following instructions, measuring ingredients, and practising patience.
Here are some ways to let your little ones in on the action:
- Let them measure the ingredients. Kids love feeling like they're contributing to the cooking process. Let them help by measuring out the ingredients and adding them to the mixing bowl.
- Get them to mix the batter. Using an electric hand mixer may be too powerful for little hands, but you can let them mix the batter with a wooden spoon or spatula.
- Show them how to use the air fryer. If your kids are old enough, teach them how to use the air fryer to bake the brownies. They'll love feeling like they're in charge!
- Let them decorate. After the brownies have cooled, let your kids decorate them with sprinkles, edible glitter, or other fun toppings.
Getting your kids involved in the kitchen is a great way to bond with them and teach them valuable skills. Who knows, you may even have a future master chef in the making!
We hope you've enjoyed this delicious and healthy Brownie Snackies recipe! With just a few simple tweaks and substitutions, you can make this recipe your own and cater to your family's tastes and dietary needs.
