I try my best to make my toddler eat all the vegetables but I have not been so successful with beets. So, I decided to make Beet Bars because she enjoys baked stuff. With an attempt to make this dish as healthy as possible, I decided to eliminate all purpose flour and used rice powder, semolina, cornmeal, milk and yogurt. I was so happy as I was making it because I was using all super healthy ingredients. The output was great. The dish had a great color which encouraged my daughter to eat it. So, all in all, it was a successful event. Hope you try it. Thank you.
