Come September, it will be just this little girl and me a few days a week as my son heads off to Kindergarten (insert crying mom face). I am so excited for this next stage of life for him and also to spend quality, one on one time with Kinsley. She is a delight and she loves to play with dinosaurs, crash cars, lay train tracks and build cities out of duplo.
But recently, she has been watching me put my make up on, brush my hair, paint my toes and make breakfast - all while asking if she can help and try too. So, my girl has been sitting up on the counter, learning how to crack eggs and whisk them for our breakfast in the morning.
One morning, she helped crack the eggs (and then immediately wash her fingers because she doesn't like them sticky), whisk the eggs together, pour in a bit of milk and sprinkle some cinnamon into a bowl. I grabbed a bag of Cinnamon and Raisin Loaf from Little Northern Bakehouse, our favourite Gluten Free Bread, and cut little hearts with a cookie cutter. Kinsley took each heart, threw them in the bowl, and then I fished each piece out and laid them in a frying pan.
We topped our Cinnamon Raisin Gluten Free French Toast with shredded coconut, a bit of maple syrup and raspberries. They were delicious and so easy to make! I love that Kinsley and I can create something so beautiful and so delicious together and make memories in the kitchen.
These Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Bites have quickly become one of my kids favourite breakfast items. You don't have to make them in shapes, but sometimes it adds a bit of surprise and fun in the morning. With summer coming, I would load these with fresh fruit in the morning, chia seeds, shredded coconut and even a few coloured sprinkles for special occasions!
If you are sending some little ones to school this September and are looking for some fun activities to do with your little ones still at home, I recommend to try cooking with your littles. Start with a simple recipe and add all your favourites! If you are looking for a good Gluten-Free bread option, there is nothing better in my books than Little Northern Bakehouse. If you are local, their storefront Sprouted Oven (also now a cafe) carries their line of bread and Costco in Langley has them as well! I just saw they have Gluten Free Hot Dog Buns!!!! Summer is here!!!
