Superfood Muffin Recipe for kids and adults too!
I was faced with a tremendous challenge months ago and I finally want to share this awesome recipe I created, which I remake almost monthly when we run out. Yes, you can freeze the leftovers!
I thought Sous Chef Rhys may have had a dairy or casein allergy since he was refusing cheese and yogurt, which he normally loves. Also when drinking milk he would have some diaper issues. Yes, he only drinks Good Karma Flaxmilk now, like me.
He also usually loved to eat scrambled eggs in the morning, but was now refusing that due to a possible allergy that we are still exploring. Yes, he may be like me where I can only tolerate them occasionally but his little body is telling him “No” for now.
I got to the point where I didn’t know what to offer Sous Chef Rhys for breakfast since he will only eat certain fruit and vegetables and I needed something easy and On The Go. I had to create something totally off the wall for breakfast that weekend!
Superfood Muffins and Artichoke Taro Pancakes were on the menu as he asked for more!
Yes, that same weekend, they had artichokes at the farmers markers so I had to buy them and create something! We will get into the pancakes in another write up.
