|Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich Muffins
On days like today, I know I struggle to find easy and healthy foods for my kids to eat while on the run from one activity to another. It would be very easy to drive through a pick up window at the local fast food place and grab something quick to go, but even if I could bring myself to do that more than once every couple of months, my kids actually don't even like that type of food anymore. So what to do? I could make yet another turkey sandwich, or peanut butter and jelly, or as I often do, give them a kids' protein bar and a bag of fruit and nuts to hold them over... but how about a healthy sandwich disguised in a muffin? You could even spread a thin layer of chocolate peanut butter or Nutella on top and call it a cupcake like I do with my daughter and it works even better. Obviously a muffin is not a perfect dinner replacement but if your kids are active like mine, it is a great before activity meal that will fill them up without weighing them down. And because it is sweetened with bananas and honey, it tastes like dessert and will be sure to please even the pickiest eaters. Trust me, because I have one of those kids!
