What do you do with a bunch of bored, starving, children on a wet and miserable Friday afternoon?
Stick a giant piece of paper to the table and instruct them to fill it with drawings while you bake muffins, that’s what you do.
Even my big kids can’t resist the lure of a big sheet of paper and the freedom to just doodle and muck around and draw whatever you want, so all four kids were still busy drawing when I pulled these yummy honey and banana muffins out of the oven.
These delicious little muffins are easy to make and even kinda healthy. They are made with wholemeal (whole grain) and oat flour and they are sweetened with honey and banana with no refined sugars. So my hope was that these would fill up my kids (oats seem to work wonders when it comes to my starving kids) and not hype up my kids.
Don’t be scared by the idea of ‘oat flour’. You don’t have to go out and buy something fancy, you just whiz up some regular or quick cook oats in the food processer. To make 1 cup of oat flour, whiz up 1 1/4 cups of oats until they are finely chopped.
They are so, so, food eaten while they are still warm. Go all out and cut them in half and spread on a little butter! They also freeze well after you’ve baked them so you can warm them up for a quick and easy snack or breakfast.
