Every child loves a bit of a treat now and then. Admittedly, we don’t send treats to school, except the occasional Tiny Teddies. However, now that my daughter is in “big” school, she comes home telling me about all the lovely treats her classmates have in their lunch boxes. So my go-to treat is homemade muffins. There are so many options when it comes to muffins. Practically every fruit there is can be turned into a delicious muffin.

So back to the recipe. I have discovered the most amazing food blogger. She calls herself Phoodie and she can be found at www.phoodie.com.au  . I came across her Banana and Coconut Muffins the other day.

Seriously, they are so easy to make and you don’t even have to use the whizzer. In fact, it’s better that you don’t. Make sure you don’t overmix.  And as she says, the recipe is flexible. You can use whatever fruit you like.

And these are how mine turned out!

I've never made it before, but it was so super easy I had to share.

  • Thanks to the team at Simple Nourishment, we have a great recipe to get the July school holidays up and running with some deliciousness. "...With some children finishing school this week, and others finishing next week, you may not want to think about the school holidays but they are coming, so what better way to meet them other than head on and organised!   For us, time in the kitchen is therapeutic and lovely and warm and fuzzy, we understand that it is not that experience for everyone however it can make a great activity for the children (I'm talking both younger and older kids here). It's such a win/win/win for you - you get occupied kids, you get food in the fridge that they will want to eat & you get to spend some quality time together!   Start with a few conversations around what the kids would like to make (who doesn't like a bit of control!) Let them choose by showing them healthy simple snacks.   Next is checking the pantry - we have a pantry list in the front of our free mini e-book and this could be used in the next step of  preparation -…
