After School Snacks, Healthy Muffins Every Kid Will Want

As a working mom of many, after school snacks are always the hardest for me to have prepared by the 3:30 hunger call. My kids arrive starving from their active day, arrive exhausted from mine so this last week I decided to ‘health-veganize’ an old banana bread recipe for wholesome goodness. Using a bunch, literally, of over ripe bananas gifted from a friend I was able to make two dozen muffins before work in around 20 minutes total time!
Saving time and bananas we all arrived home today to a plate full of absolute deliciousness for kids and adults alike!

What’s needed:

muffin tin

3 regular sized overripe bananas or 6 small bananas of any type

1/2 cup quinoa

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

3/4 cup white flour

1/4 cup walnuts *optional*

1/2 cup Organic Soy or Almond milk

1/2 cup Apple juice (I used fresh apples but store bought also works)

1/4 cup coconut oil



Preheat oven to 350f/175c

Sift dry ingredients together making a well in the center.

Add wet ingredients to the well folding into the dry mixture

add any additions, walnuts, raisins, cranberries, blueberries etc

Pour batter  into the nonstick muffin tins until 3/4 of the way full

Place in the oven on the middle rack for 12-17 minutes

Take out of the oven when golden brown, let cool

You can make a coconut butter frosting or just eat warm! An any age delight!
