We bought your banana bread flavor and my 5 year old loves it! She puts it on everything. It’s been such a lifesaver because it is so hard to get her to eat anything. I noticed that your website says you can use TippiTopper for baking. How? I’d like to give it a try. Do you have a great recipe that is kid friendly?

So glad to hear TippiTopper has been helpful for your family. Yes, you can absolutely use TippiTopper for baking and general cooking. TippiTopper is made entirely from dried organic fruit powders and it’s great for baking. You get the same vitamins, minerals and flavors as whole fruit and calories but at one-eighth of the volume. A general rule for fruit powder baking is to measure an amount of fruit powder equal to 1/4 the amount of flour called for in the recipe for the baked good. For example, if the recipe instructs you to use 1 cup of all-purpose flour, measure 1/4 cup of fruit powder. Add the fruit powder to the mixing bowl. You don’t have to modify baking time and oven temperature when using fruit powders with regular flour.
Here is a recipe we use often in our home – Morning Muffins. These are great for on-the-go and freeze well. And this is a great opportunity to let your daughter help in the kitchen. Let her measure, mix, prep fruits/vegetables, etc. Thank you for contacting TippiTopper!
