How To MAke The Best Healthy Muffins For Kids:
One thing is for sure – these healthy muffins are easy, tasty and irresistible even for kids. All these simple muffin recipes are high in fibre and nutrient-dense.
- Use oats: We are using oats as the base for all of these, no flour needed. Therefore, the muffins are packed with vitamins, minerals and complex carbohydrates.
- Add healthy fats. Coconut oil contains natural saturated fats. It helps to increase the good HDL cholesterol levels in your body and to turn the bad LDL cholesterol into a less harmful form. In some of the recipes we use butter, but high quality butter contains a ton of essential vitamins like vitamin A and B12 that your kids definitely need. Still, both of these options are high in saturated fats and calories and should be enjoyed in moderation.
- Add fruits and vegetables. Hiding fruits or vegetables in these muffins is super easy and your kids will actually love the result. Some great options are apples, blueberries, bananas, pumpkin, zucchini, cherries or even spinach!

- Make them refined sugar free: using bananas, honey, maple syrup or coconut sugar is a better option here. Coconut sugar is still a type of sugar, but a better, healthier alternative of regular refined sugar. Still, use it sparingly!
