Cooking With Kids: Chia Blueberry Banana Mini Muffins

Chia-Blueberry-Banana-Mini-Muffins-Eggfree-VeganI’m always trying to modify recipes to accommodate our little nuggets food allergies. Specifically when it comes down to baked goods. And believe you me, there have been plenty of fails along the way but in retrospect, some good certainly came out of it. This chia blueberry banana mini muffin recipe is one of them. It’s so moist and scrumptious you would never know it’s packed with some pretty healthy ingredients, 100% vegan and most importantly egg-free for our little nugget.

Cooking With Kids: Chia Blueberry Banana Mini Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup organic flour
  • 1 1/2 organic coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup organic sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp organic chia powder
  • 1 1/2 cup organic blueberries
  • 1 1/2 ripe bananas
  • 5 tbsp vanilla almond milk
  • **You'll also need a mini muffin pan

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease muffin pan with coconut oil or cooking spray.
  3. Mix chia powder and 1 tbsp warm almond milk and let it sit for a couple minutes until the chia powder absorbs the milk. Using your electric mixer, combine all dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda) and mix. Then slowly add in warm coconut oil (it will mix better if it's in liquid form). Add in chia powder and warm milk mix. Followed by the ripe bananas. Lastly, add in the 4 tbsp of milk one at a time and mix at low speed for about a minute. Poor mix into mini muffin pan. Let the kiddos add the blueberries and then top off each muffin with more mix.
  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until muffins are cooked all the way. Remove from oven and enjoy!

Speaking of chia, did you know chia powder is a superfood packed with protein, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids? Chia powder’s omega fatty acids are eight times more abundant than salmon gram-for-gram! High five to being sneaky and adding in this superfood into muffins.

  • I don’t know about you but our mornings are surely not picture perfect. And now that school has started it’s certainly become pretty chaotic. Trying to wake the kids up, get them dressed, fed, hair and teeth brushed and out the door for school all while whining and complaining in between. I always feel that no matter how well-prepared I am the night before something eventually throws off our routine. Anyone else relate? .
.
So for that, I’m always prepared and carry with me @belvita. Did you know that belVita Breakfast Biscuits have NO high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners or artificial flavors? They also provide 4 hours of nutritious steady energy. And best of all they’re tasty, wholesome and convenient for us busy folks. #belVitaPartner #MyWholesomeBreakfast

  • #ad Every time I see the clock ⏰ approaching ‪6:30 pm‬, aka time for our kids bedtime routine 🛏, I get an extra burst of energy. Mainly because it reminds me that our girls will soon be counting sheep or that much closer to it. 😴🎉😁

And with so many bedtime routine blog posts and tips out there, I've come to the realization that they’re not all perfect for every family out there. Certainly not ours. But one things for sure, we can all appreciate a stress-free routine, right? 🙋‍♀️ .

  • #AD | Getting an annual eye exam is important for kids and adults even if you don’t wear contacts or glasses. You see, as first time parents we had no idea that kids should get their very first eye exam at six-months of age. And unfortunately, we learned this the hard way. Check out our latest blog post to see what happened to our oldest daughter Mia when she was only 2 years old and we neglected to get her her first eye exam let alone add her to our vision plan. @vspvisioncare
