This recipe came about as the result of packing school lunches. Two of our children are now in school and both have students in their class with nut allergies. In an effort to reduce the risk of exposure we have been looking for foods out children will love that replace our household staples of almonds, nut mixes, peanut butter sandwiches, etc.
I got to work in the kitchen and made some healthy changes to my old banana bread recipe, and this is the result. We love these muffins! They are moist, fluffy, tasty and packed with 5 grams of protein. They make an easy breakfast when I am busy, and certainly a fun and nutritious addition to a healthy lunch.
Note: While I don’t want to stress over protein quantity – or any other nutrient – I find that adding fun stuff like this makes it easier to be sure that the kids are getting what they need. The fact that they love these, makes it even better and gives me peace.of.mind. I hope you enjoy these muffins as much as we do!
