Jennifer Garner will have scored major brownie points with her kids this week, as she whipped up some yummy English muffins from scratch as part of her “Pretend Cooking Show”.
Garner, 45, who is mom to Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 5, shared the second episode of her fake series on Facebook, with her going from making a healthy smoothie in a recently uploaded video, to something with a few more carbs.
The actress, whose first episode saw her make honey wheat bread, told the camera: “One of my favourite restaurants in Santa Monica is Huckleberry run by Zoe Nathan. I was so happy when she made a cookbook.
“One of my favourite recipes in here is something I make all the time. It’s a total family-pleaser. Their English muffin recipe. It’s covered in flour. You start it the night before so it’s about to be last night.”
Garner then talked to her audience through the muffin-making steps, cutting the camera to her adorable golden retriever Birdy at one point, gushing: “Birdy is an enthusiastic participant in the kitchen.”
After smelling the finished product, Garner shared: “They feel really perfect.” However, she insisted she couldn’t eat any herself as she’s currently filming a movie.

Don’t be scared! It’s tastier than it looks! I started working with @bewellbykelly a few months ago to get ready for #PEPPERMINTmovie and have had her smoothie every day for breakfast since. Today, I decided to play scientist and see if my @onceuponafarm cold-pressed, organic purée (or baby food, if you’re a baby, but whatever) could be a substitute for fresh blueberries when I didn’t see any in the fridge. Yep, it could. 👏🏼👏🏼 —– #BeWELLSMOOTHIE recipe: 2 scoops @primalkitchenfoods collagen protein powder (hot tip: I prefer the Chocolate Coconut Collagen Fuel) 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1 tablespoon almond butter (if no one’s looking I use extra…😬) 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk Handful of fresh spinach Small handful of ice Very small handful of blueberries (please see almond butter. Also true here. 🤷🏻♀️) —– Mix all ingredients together in blender and enjoy.
