School District Chef Creates Healthful Baked Snacks For Students

October 17, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A school district chef in Arizona is using alternative – and healthful – ingredients to create tasty and nutritious baked goods for schoolkids. The treats she has developed – hummingbird cupcakes, olive oil lemon cookies, black bean brownies, etc.– all meet federal Smart Snack rules for schools. Shyla Larson replaces unhealthy ingredients with better options like applesauce, black beans and vanilla extract. These enhance the flavors while keeping sugar levels low and maintaining similar texture and consistency. The result? “Nothing but positive feedback,” says the administrative dietitian for the Tucson Unified School District.
