Any mamas out there have trouble getting your kids to eat more (or any) vegetables? Veggies have been a hard sell in this house. My oldest has sensory issues, so getting him to eat ANYTHING has been a challenge since he was born. He certainly will not eat vegetables (unless pizza sauce counts).

What all my kids love, though, is chocolate cake. Who doesn’t? So here is my chance to add some healthy greens to one of their favorite snacks, and they won’t even know!!

My oldest, the pickiest one, begged me for more “cake”. Of course, I didn’t mind giving him another piece because so far, this has been the only successful way I’ve gotten him to eat spinach.  Whatever works! Right, mamas?

 

Let’s get to the recipe, shall we?

Ingredients:

 

1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Four

1 1/2 Tsps Baking Powder

1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
