I need Healthy Breakfast Muffins for my children. I need muffins I can make ahead of time and then freeze. I need something to throw in their lunch pail for snack. I decided cooking ahead and making these muffins is a great way to save money and help my kids make healthy choices.
2 eggs (1/4 banana for each egg or 1/4 cup of apple sauce)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups applesauce, unsweetened
1 banana, mashed
1½ teaspoons sugar
5 cups quick oats
¼ cup flax seeds (found in the natural food aisle)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
3 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2¾ cups rice milk or milk
golden raisins, and chocolate 1/4 cup of each
You will combine all of the dry ingredients together and stir. Once then ingredients are stirred you will mix the wet ingredients in a second bowl. Then you will slowly combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Then you will scoop out your muffin mixture into the muffin liners. I like to add my raisons and chocolate to each one. I have kids that like more of one or the other so I make them for each child. I even let my children do this part.
Then we place them in the over at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. You will let them cool and serve them or cover them for later. I have frozen them for up to three months and placed them frozen in their lunch book in the warmer months for snack.

A lot of people think that if you are on a diet, or just eating healthy in general, the things like cookies are a no-no. I’ll admit so did I until I found this awesome recipe for Low Calorie Funfetti Cookies! Who doesn’t love Funfetti cake!? With a few simple swaps, and about 15 minuets you can have yummy, fluffy Low Calorie Cookies, and not ruin your whole diet! At only 78 calories a cookie, this is going to become a favorite dessert at this house, and maybe at yours too!
Yep, just 3 ingredients for this tasty treat!
Step 1: Mix the funfetti cake mix, eggs, and yogurt together until smooth (I did end up putting about 1/2 a cup of water in the mix to soften it up a bit)
Step 2: Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spoon batter onto a cookie sheet in drops, make sure they are about 2 inches apart. (I found 2 different ways to do this, one was to use a well greased cookie sheet, another was to use a cookie sheet covered in foil, so I tried both to find out which would work better)
Step 3: Cook cookies at 375 degrees for 10 minuets or until fluffy. I found that using the greased cookie sheet (I used olive oil) worked MUCH better then the foil, they slid right off, they tended to get stuck on the foil.
All together this took me about 15 minuets to do, and the cookies are awesome! It’s almost like eating a mini cake (minus the icing, and guilt) My 6 year old loved them, and I love that they are only 48 calories a cookie! This would be great for a sleepover, birthday party, or just to have a little something sweet!
