What have you been making with your kids lately? We noticed that we are very light on breakfasts on Kidgredients. Sure, we eat breakfast, but it’s never blog worthy. And weekends, well they are fraught with me wanting sleep and the kids wanting us up and raring to go. So I was very excited when the theme for this months Kids’ Kitchen was Breakfast! Here are the pear and banana breakfast oat and almond muffins Miss 5 and I whipped up.
They are ticking so many breakfast buttons: no added sugar, filled with oats and almonds and super yummy. They freeze well (think: kids go and get your own breakfast!) and are so easy the kids can make them! This is a great recipe for young kids and a forgiving one too. The other great aspect: no eggs…so lick that spoon!
Miss 5 and I did the measuring, mixing and filling of the cupcake trays together. Having a recipe that uses easy cup measures means she can do most of it herself. She loves mixing with her spotted spoon!
It did get a bit messy putting them in the silicone cupcake trays, but that is part of the fun! As I said earlier though, this recipe is very forgiving so it doesn’t matter if they look messy when they go into the oven.
These muffins would be great in a lunchbox if you aren’t in a nut free setting too. But I have clearly labelled them as containing NUTS when I put them in the freezer so I don’t send them into school.
