Class Experience

Growing up, everyone in my family was sick, all the time.  We tried dozens of methods to get healthy - conventional medicine, alternative medicine, vitamins and supplements, even a couple "miracle cures" that weren't so miraculous.  After years of experimentation, we finally discovered that our diet was the culprit and that eating healthier was the solution!  My mother later published a book on the subject, and I became passionate about teaching others how to cook healthier and "let your food be your medicine." The goal of my Healthy 'n' Heavenly Treats interactive cooking classes is to share healthy culinary secrets with others and dispel the myth that healthy foods and heavenly treats are mutually exclusive.

Ingredients (exact amounts will be included with your welcome post): shredded zucchini (see note below), avocado or canola oil, free range or organic eggs, pure vanilla extract, whole wheat flour, oat flour (see note below), Sucanat or other organic/raw sugar, ground cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, and dark chocolate chips Equipment: standard kitchen mixer and two large mixing bowls, measuring cups and spoons, large spoon and/or spatula, greased 13x9 inch baking dish, access to an oven Notes: 1. You will need finely shredded zucchini for this recipe. Without removing the peel, use a food processor or hand shredder to prepare it before class. Younger learners will need parental assistance. 2. Oat flour may be purchased or made at home. To make your own, place 1½ cups of steel-cut or organic oats into a flour mill; most blenders and food processors will also work. Please have your flour ready before class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will need to use the stove to complete this class, and should therefore, have adult supervision unless they are familiar with the kitchen and have parents' permission to cook on their own.  

For this recipe, students must shred zucchini using a food processor or hand shredder.  They may also need to mill oats into flour.  This can be done with a flour mill, blender, or food processor.   For both safety and time, please be sure that these two ingredients are prepared before class.  (Instructions are provided in the “Materials” section below.)  

If you or anyone in your family is allergic to any of the ingredients in this recipe (see supply list), please consider using substitute ingredients.
