We love baking for lots of reasons. It’s part science, part creativity and all delicious. It’s also perfect for sharing your creations with friends and family. In the Batter Up Project, you’ll learn how to make a variety of baked goods using healthy alternatives to classic ingredients. It’s the best of both worlds!

In this project, you’ll learn:

  • The basic principles of baking, like kneading, rising and temperature control
  • How to substitute ingredients for healthier versions
  • How to bake various treats like muffins, cookies, cakes, pies and bread
  • Tips on decorating and storing your baked goods
