Instead, they would happily eat prepackaged “bars” of some sort every morning for the foreseeable future. The thought of this is a little unsettling as the price of their favorite bars can rapidly add up.
Especially when they not only each want a different flavor for breakfast but also for snacks as well. Not to mention as wholesome as the ingredients may be, it's still no substitute for real food.
A little known fact about Texas – we have a peach capital. Fredericksburg is the self-proclaimed peach capital Texas and with that comes an abundance of fresh peach stands readily available on almost every corner.
One thing I learned from Brady is that if you call something a cupcake, she's about 100 times more likely to eat it. Or, at least try it. So while they were at summer camp one-day last week, I went to work making the weeks' breakfasts that were not only chock full of fruit.
Not only are these muffins full of fruity goodness, but they're also free of eggs, oil or butter. Instead, I used cooking spray (also makes cleanup easier), bananas, and applesauce to get rid of all the extra calories and fat.
Cooking spray ensures food won't get stuck to the pan, but it also makes cleanup a snap! This is a fresh, seasonal, and healthier alternative to processed foods that you can feel good about feeding to your kids. And, these will be great to have on hand as they head back to school since they're easily frozen and reheated in the microwave!
