When it comes to food, kids can be very fussy. They like variety and often get bored even with their favourite dish, if it is served too frequently. So feeding kids with tasty yet healthy meals is a challenge with most mums. Try new recipes or tweak old ones by adding new ingredients or simply innovating with shapes. Involve your kids too—safely!—while you cook. This will get them interested as well as make cooking fun.
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Delicious, healthy, low-fat muffins that kids and adults both enjoy! Great for breakfast or as a snack with tea or coffee, or for kiddy parties. Once cooled, these are portable enough for picnics.
200 grams plain flour
11/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
A pinch of salt
2 egg whites
225 grams mashed bananas
150 grams castor sugar
4 tablespoons apple sauce
75 grams chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 200 C. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin.
2. Mix flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, salt and sugar. Mix in egg whites, apple sauce and banana until just moistened. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into muffin cups.
3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a tooth pick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
Rather than muffins, this can also be made into a loaf. Pour batter into a 20 x 10cm (8 x 4 in) loaf tin, and bake at 180 C for 45 to 50 minutes.
