PUMPKIN SNACK CAKES
My teenagers are always rummaging through the cupboards for a snack. I make Pumpkin Snack Cakes and store them in the freezer. Better than cookies, one little cake has over a gram of fiber and provides 20% of the RDA of Vitamin A. Dry milk powder and chopped apricots replace the sugar to add extra calcium and Vitamin C.
