"Healthier" Mini Muffins (Quick Tip #2)

As stated numerous times I am not a domestic diva, I am not a professional baker or cook and I am also not a photographer! Ok, so now that we have that cleared up, here is how I make myself feel better about the muffins I make my son and the lack of veggies he eats.

Now you’re not getting a “from scratch” recipe so just in case you thought that was happening I sincerely and with every fiber of my apron that I am not wearing apologize. However, I do hope this next part pleases you more than that. I use Krusteaze muffin mix from the store. It requires oil, eggs and water and comes with a can of fruit that you fold into the batter at the end. With the mix, I used today it was cranberries and orange peels! This muffin mix is my sons absolute favorite. I make the mix as per directions, dump the fruit it comes with then . . . get ready for this twist, I grate some zucchini on top of the fruit, mix (fold) it all in gently and scoop it into the muffin tin!

I know, nothing crazy new or totally inventive but hey! It’s what I do for my little man and I hope it gave you some inspiration for easy grab and go muffins for your kiddos with a little extra somethin’ somethin’ for good measure. You could of course beef these babies up even more with say nutritional flakes or something like that but my little guy is really a great eater just not huge into veggies at the moment and my theory is; why not?!?

As the title states, these were mini muffins which are great for my kiddo who is almost two. It cuts back on a crumby mess and doesn’t get wasted if he’s not that hungry. However my kid, is always THAT hungry. These muffins last two days maybe three if I police them properly. As you can see below he loves when mom makes muffins!

Enjoy! Thanks for reading!

Yummm! You've got something on your face . . .

Cold Coffee, Dirty Diapers and Daydreams

 I wont pretend that life with baby is perfect and I really wont pretend that life with a toddler is perfect! That's OK, try as we might our lives will never be "perfect"  because there will always be something bigger and better that we want to conquer next! Most importantly in the now; life is good! I am a stay-at-home-mom with a wonderful and supportive husband who is busy working as well as attending school full-time. I have many hobbies in which I enjoy and generally never focus on one for too long. . . "hobby ADHD". Most of my hobbies are done while watching television or listening to an audio book! As far as parenting goes I am a pretty attached mama who nursed until my son was 14 months old, wore him from time to time but not as much as I wish I did (now that he won't stay put) and I currently cloth diaper. I am not a crunchy granola mom(aspire as I may), I do envy their dedication to all things natural and "clean". I do not hold any parenting style against anyone and I often love to take different aspects of parenting styles and use them for my own unique parenting approach. Before I had a child I was busy as an educator working with kids ranging from preschool to elementary school, I worked with special education specifically autism as well as tutored and taught gymnastics. I have always loved working with children and knew being a mom was made for me.
