Teens in the Kitchen: Baking Nutritious and Delicious Cookies & Cupcakes

Back to events

Event Details

During this 2-hour class, we will explore basic baking techniques as we create cookies, cupcakes, and a fruit crumble. We will even uncover several secret ways to pack in nutrients and minimize added sugar while retaining rich flavor and moist texture. The three featured recipes are Triple Chocolate Cookies, Carrot Cake Cupcakes, and Pear-Ginger Crumble.

This free “hands-on” cooking class is specifically for teens in middle and high school (ages 11-17). Join Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Amy Reuter to explore cooking tips, techniques, and recipes to add to your skills in the kitchen.

Note, this class has been carefully planned for small groups and the instructor counts on a full class. In order to provide a quality experience for everyone, please be certain that you will be able to participate before registering.

What To Expect: In Verdant’s hands-on cooking classes, teens work together with other participants in a fun environment led by Registered Dietitian Nutritionists who can teach you how to prepare and enjoy delicious, healthy foods.
