I thought that since we are in the autumn/fall season that most of the recipes will be about the holiday seasons coming up and also some healthy snacks as well. For today I will also post a YouTube video of this recipe. It is not the exact recipe, but I felt it was as close to the recipe provided as possible. Enjoy!
NOTE: Just another thought to add is crockpot, air fryer and microwave recipes are probably the easiest forms of cooking, especially for autistic individuals to get started in their cooking journey. Everyone’s walk is different, especially when it comes to cooking on the stove and overall experience. I hope you are able to give this recipe a try with your family, whether you have an autistic student/child or you just want to try something different, create some memories with your family.
