As it stands, I am shoving a Z-bar or fruit at my kids and going EAT, EAT, EAT! Then throwing milk or OJ their way and yelling DRINK, DRINK, DRINK! No one is enjoying their breakfast and everyone is stressed.
I need options that are already prepared (I don’t do mornings), nutritious and that the kids will actually like. And they need to be consumed quickly.
Cue the Blueberry Greek Yogurt Muffin. My kids adore muffins, but I don’t have them often because they’re not all that nutritious. I started toying around with one, trying to see if I could cut some saturated fat and add some protein without sacrificing flavor or texture. With a full cup of Greek yogurt included, these were the hands-down winners. They’re ridiculously moist and flavorful, and packed with sweet blueberries.
I make and freeze a double batch of these so they are ready to heat up in the morning. Instant and nutritious breakfast? Yes, please!
(These are also good with half whole wheat pastry flour, half regular. It adds a bit more fiber.)
