Kid’s Picks: Mini Pizzas and No-Bake Date Cookies

Mini pizza


No Bake Date Cookies




My kids picked the recipes for the mini pizzas and date cookies for this post, so needless to say they are family friendly.  The mini pizzas are really simple to make and are great for a quick lunch or dinner.  I like that the kids can make their own and put on their favorite toppings, so they get their pizza just how they want it (no complaining involved).  My kids, and my husband, love to have the Date Cookies for snack and they usually disappear the same day I make them.  They are full of oats and nuts, but no refined sugar.  There is no baking involved for these cookies, all you need is a food processor.  Kids can help make these cookies too.  You can have them measure ingredients and help roll the cookies.  I love to get my kids involved in cooking and they love to eat things that they make, even if it is a new food.
