Les Petits Chefs bake for the holidays

As a special treat for the last Petits Chefs session for the term, we baked mini-cupcakes.  I found a recipe I really liked the look of on the California Walnut website and adapted it slightly using almonds instead of walnuts due to some allergies.  It’s a pretty easy recipe and didn’t really involve much prep – just a lot of measuring and some elbow grease (the mixture got fairly thick so it was tough to stir).  We had these in the oven after only about 25 minutes and because we made mini-sized ones, they only took 15 minutes to cook.  A perfect (and not too unhealthy) festive treat for the holidays!

Happy Holidays from Les Petits Chefs!

  1. Oh how sweet. I always love the little hands in Les Petits Chefs entries. Those are awesome colorful holiday cupcakes. Nice substitution for the allergies.

  2. The addition of the flaxseed is a nice twist to these little cupcakes – they would be great as a snack but would also make a terrific breakfast on the go!!!
    Have bookmarked for a future project -I am so glad you are sharing the adventures of Les Petit Chefs with us!!

  3. I just love the posts about the Les Petits Chefs. I’m always curious to see what they’ve been making! And wow do these look soooo good. I love how there’s coconut, almonds, chocolate chips and dried cherries! YUM!!!
