Every few weeks I start thinking of something different that I can put in the kids’ tiffin box for school or make as an evening snack when they come back from the park. I get bored eating the same things every week, so obviously the kids must be too! Today’s recipe is a win-win for all of us – the kids and me.
Like all parents, I worry about the sugar and flour content in it. Refined sugar doesn’t really do anything for a child’s growth and health and my family has a super sweet tooth. Now let me ask you this – do your kids love fudgy chocolatey muffins? So what if I told you we have a muffin recipe that is healthy and tasty?
Growing kids need protein to help them build and repair tissues and these are the building blocks your child needs to grow right. Our muffins are made of a protein-packed ingredient and don’t use white sugar. Your kids (and you) can munch on this snack guilt-free. You don’t have to worry if they pick up a second piece as it is packed with nutrition (and are really tasty! )
