They are like a big healthy bowl of porridge in a delicous muffins.
Kids love them because they can get involved too. I have created the recipe that just some tablespoons will do – you don’t even need a weighing scales. They are whipped up in no time and ideal for freezing if you decided to make a double batch.
With Isabella starting Junior Infants and a new baby here it is vital to find recipes that she will eat and double up as a lunch box treat or after school snack.
The beauty of this recipe is that is is full of slow release energy from the oats, a little natural sweetness from the honey and it uses up those kinda ‘smushy’ berries that cant really be eaten come mid-week.
By using the high protein yogurt they will also help to keep the feeling of satiety and fullness for longer.
As I said on the Six O’Clock Show the other night, Isabella is a great recipe tester and the first couple of iterations of this recipe got promptly handed back. Too dry, not sweet enough, too sticky. They took a bit of work to get right but I am very proud of this recipe.
Kids love it and they are quick and easy for us busy Moms and Dads.
I know your family will love them too.
With fun & deliciousness,
