On Fridays I usually don't work and have both kids with me. I'm always looking for activities to do with them.
Also, lately we have been trying to be a but more creative than Witbix and milk for breakfast, so with the help of Mr A 3.5 year old, I just made super healthy muffins that (supposing they last til tomorrow) will be for breakkie for him and Miss M 1.5 year old.
I used only ingredients that I would be happy for them to have unlimited or in the quantities I put. I was actually going to make them flour free but a bit of flour is not really bad for growing kids. Also, ingredients are easily replaceable. I put Apple and frozen raspberry but you could actually put whatever you feel like. Just careful with mashed banana as it counts as wet ingredients.
To the point:
Healthy Oats, Apple and Raspberry Muffins for breakkie:
Makes 12 - Prep 10 min - Cooking 15 to 20 min.
1 cup quick-cooking oats or 1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/4 cup coconut flour (or just use 1 cup of wholemeal flour instead)
1 cup milk (I used Almond)
2 large eggs
2 tsp of chia seeds
1/8 cup yoghurt (I used vanilla greek low fat)
1/8 cup vegetable oil (you can use Olive oil as well, which I love in cakes, but it has a strong flavour)
1/8 cup honey
1 chopped apple
a handful of raspberries
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 - First (before even switching the oven on), mix the oats with the milk and let it soak while you do something else.
2 - Pre heat oven to 190 (or 170 fan forced). Prepare a 12 whole muffin tray.
3 - Beat eggs, and chia seeds very well. Add oil and yoghurt and mix again. Add honey, and mix again.
4 - Add flour(s) , baking powder, and apple and raspberry (or any other dry ingredients you will be using) to the oats mix and mix well. Add the egg mixture and mix it until combined.
5 - Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups until cups are 2/3 full.
Bake in preheated oven for 15-25 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean.
The ones in the bottom of the image look a bit darker as Mr A asked me for chocolate muffins, so I added half teaspoon of chocolate powder to the left over batter.
