Light & Fluffy Banana Choc Chip Muffins

By

Light & Fluffy Banana Choc Chip Muffins
Everyone needs a go to recipe for those bananas that are starting to turn a little brown in the fruit bowl. These muffins are simple to make and deliciously light and fluffy. By using really ripe bananas you also cut back on the amount of sugar you need to use. Be warned these are likely to disappear straight out of the oven, so be sure to freeze a few for the lunch boxes before the kids come looking for them.

Strawberry and Lime Chia Puddings

Strawberry and Lime Chia Puddings

I love using chia seeds in my children's diet because they are so versatile and pack a huge nutritional punch. They are loaded with plant based omega 3s (important for brain and heart health), high in protein and calcium (although this may be poorly absorbed) and have a whopping 4g of fibre per tablespoon (a great way to top up your child's fibre intake if you have a fussy eater).

Oat Pancakes with Banana & Cinnamon or Raspberry & Vanilla

Oat Pancakes with Banana & Cinnamon or Raspberry & Vanilla

For many years I've made the smaller version (pikelets) for my kid's lunch boxes and they've always been popular. Traditional pancakes (or pikelets) made with refined white flour, sugar and and egg are fairly low on nutrition though, especially fibre. 

I developed this recipe a few years ago to boost the nutrition in the humble pancake and still provide a tasty option for the kid's lunch boxes (or breakfast!).

Cornflake & Chia Lunch Box Cookies
Most kids love a classic cornflake cookie! I've taken this classic recipe and given it a boost in nutrition. These cookies are a great source of fibre, iron, B vitamins and have a nice little hit of Omega 3 fatty acids thanks to the chia seeds and they still taste like the classic cornflake cookie we all love!

Apple Cinnamon Crumble Muffins with Zucchini

Apple Cinnamon Crumble Muffins with Zucchini
These moorishly fluffy apple crumble muffins with zucchini will disappear so fast you'll wish you made a double batch! Home made baked goods are a great way to boost your child's intake of fruit, veggies and fibre. If your child is a little averse to "green bits" then I'd suggest peeling both the apple and the zucchini in this recipe. If they're happy with "bits" in their muffins, then leave the skin on for an extra boost in fibre and nutrition.
