One of the things that we’ve been trying to do more of around our home is cooking more. It’s been hard during the summer since it’s been 100°+ outside but it’s also gotten so expensive with going out to eat. We’ve been trying to have more snack type things in the house as well, since the first thing the kids want to do when they get home from school is eat! But, having healthy snack options is a challenge sometimes as well.
My kids are also old enough to either help out in the kitchen or make meals and recipes on their own. I love having simple enough recipes on hand so they can get to know the kitchen and have experience with making different types of food.
This recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins is one of those recipes that everyone loves, can pretty much make on their own (with some guidance for the younger kid) and are healthier than a lot of things that we would normally buy at the grocery store for snacks or for breakfast.
