Here are some healthy fall recipes for you to try. Remember to get an adult's help when putting things into the oven!

Apple Parchment

You Will Need:

apples sauce, plastic wrap and a cookie sheet.

What to Do:

Spread the plastic wrap on the cookie sheet. Spoon the apple sauce onto the cookie sheet, no thicker than one-quarter inch so that it will dry.

Place in a 150? oven (ask an adult to help you) to dry.

It can take anywhere from six to 10 hours to dry. You will know it's ready when there are no sticky spots left.

Trail Mix

You Will Need:

3 cups old-fashioned oats

1 cup raw sunflower seeds

1?2 cup lightly-toasted sesame seeds

1 cup wheat bran

1?2 cup oat bran

1?2 cup wheat germ

1?2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

1 cup raw peanuts

1?2 cup coarsely chopped almonds

1?4 cup safflower oil

1 cup honey

2 cups mixed dried fruit (raisins, figs, dates, apples, pears, all cut into small pieces)

Ask an adult to preheat the oven to 300?.

In a very large bowl, mix together the oats, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, what bran, oat bran, wheat germ and nuts. (If you don't have a bowl that's large enough, make half the recipe.)

Mix well. Add the oil and honey. Stir to blend evenly.

Pour the mixture into a large baking pan with high sides. Ask an adult to put it into the oven.

Bake until the grains and the nuts are lightly colored and thoroughly cooked, about 45 minutes.

Have an adult help you stir the mixture every 5 to 10 minutes just to make sure it cooks evenly. An adult should also help you take the mixture out of the oven.

Let it cool completely.

Stir and break up an clumps that might form while the trail mix cools. Add the mixed dried fruit.

Store the trail mix in an airtight container. u
