It seems I may be on a muffin kick.
But I’m totally ok with that, because I can make them super healthy, tasty, and kid approved! Win-win-WIN!
My blue-eyed, reliable taste tester…
When I stumbled upon the idea of making green muffins, I was almost giddy. My kids (as are most kids, ammiright?) are usually turned off by the green color of food. It’s like they were born with this innate aversion to anything green…or healthy. But over the years, I’ve either learned to hide the green, or present it in a fun and (hopefully) kid-friendly way.
Grandparents are the best at spoiling our kids…and what better way than with delicious treats?
Thankfully, my parents respect our views on food, so they try their best to keep healthy snacks on hand for when we come to visit (thanks for that, by the way, mom and dad). 9 times out of 10, when we walk into their house, my kids will ask for a snack (I swear mom, we do not starve our children!)…
One of their favorite special treats that they get at my parents house, are granola bars… more specifically, chocolate chip granola bars. While there are plenty of healthier options out there, most of them still have some undesired ingredients; natural flavors, caramel color, and the like.
So I made it my mission to find a delicious, healthy, and easy recipe for homemade granola bars.
