Check out these great pics of our banana bread bakers this week! Thanks to the generous support of our Little Flour buyers, we were able to purchase ingredients for 25 loaves of banana bread, plus a shiny new red hand mixer to help get the work done! The kids loved mashing the bananas, learning in the process that the over ripe fruit you can buy at a discount makes a great loaf of bread. We also talked about the healthy use of whole grains and the magical sweetness of oat flour. We learned about apple butter and decided to schedule an apple butter class this fall. We had a lot of great conversation in the kitchen, and had snacks for all of our youth bakers this afternoon plus banana bread for everyone that drops in to the center for lunch tomorrow. Thanks to all our supporters and young bakers who made it happen this week. As one of our kids said today, “the smell of banana bread is next to heaven!” So is the sight and sound of one group of kids baking for another!
