School is almost out for summer, and can I say, I’m just done. Getting kids ready for school that is. It is a battle I’m done waging. I don’t want to convince people to eat quicker or to get dressed or to take off their swimming suit in favor of actual clothes.
I am particularly done making breakfast. For a while, I tried. I really did. But I’m even sick of feeding them cereal.
Muffins. They are the answer. Make them the day before. Then everybody can just wake up and eat them with a glass of milk.
Since these muffins are for school bound children, I felt some obligation to make them “healthy.”
These healthier banana crumb muffins use whole grain flour, greek yogurt and coconut oil, oh and of course bananas. That adds fiber and protein, which sounds healthy.
I find that it helps to trick my kids into eating anything healthy. I do that by adding chocolate chips and a crumb topping. I can add a little bad stuff to convince them to eat the good stuff. The trade off is worth it to me. And in the spirit of full disclosure, these muffins are not low sugar. Sorry.
You can omit the crumb topping if you want and they are still killer. You can get rid of the chocolate chips and they still rock.
I love to make them into mini muffins. Anything mini, is adorable and therefore tastier, right? Plus if they don’t eat the whole thing, it isn’t as much wasted.
I hope you are surviving the last push until summer. That’s when a whole new world of challenges begins. At least they can wear their swimming suit all day and nobody will care. Until then, try muffins.
