Recipe: Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffins by Sylvia Fallas–Perfect to Bake at Home with the Kids!

Thank you, Sylvia for this great recipe, perfect right now for parents or caregivers who have kids home from school due to the coronavirus and are looking for things to do together while remaining at home and indoors. Cooking together, especially baking, is something most kids enjoy tremendously, but unfortunately many parents and their children don’t have a lot of time to do these kinds of things together given the parents’ hectic work schedules and the busy schedules of their children with school, studying, and extracurricular activities. May you find this recipe comforting and an inspiration and perfect excuse to take advantage of the time we now have as a result of this unfortunate situation and use it to bond and make positive memories with those we love.

From Sylvia:
We don’t know what’s ahead. But I do know (or have a feeling) that you’ve probably got a bag of flour to use up. Maybe a feeling that you want to do something productive. Possibly a bored kid who’s bored of climbing the walls. Call it a fractions lessons and make these!
