**Disclosure- I was sponsored by LACTAID for this post & future posts. All opinions & thoughts are my own.
As I have told you before- I have incorporated LACTAID into many of my recipes lately after I was able to sit in on a LACTAID Briefing Session with dietitian Michelle Harrington, Cooper Munroe of The Motherhood & celebrity chef Melissa d’Arabian back in May. Some of you may have seen Melissa d’Arabian Wednesday on the TODAY Show talking about cooking lactose-free dinner options with LACTAID. You can watch the video of that segment below.
Cooking with LACTAID has been just as easy as when I was previously cooking with milk. One just substitutes for the other & there really isn’t any change in flavor. So I decided to share with you a recipe that I have been making quite often in my quest to stop buying pre-packaged breakfast foods for the kids. This means that every couple days I bake something & a lot of the time it’s muffins or a breakfast cake/bread of some sort. One of the kid’s favorites are these
They taste like an oatmeal raisin cookie- but so much healthier.
Adding LACTAID to them has made it so everyone in the house can enjoy them too.
