Healthy Kids Breakfast: Oatmeal Banana Carrot Muffins

Finding healthy kids breakfast ideas can be a task. Especially if you’re looking for something gluten free and appealing enough for your child to consume.

Eggs are a breakfast staple at our house. But we do love to make muffins, pancakes or waffles on the weekend. We have been so impressed with these oatmeal banana carrot muffins for two reasons.

First, they are very healthy, sneak veggies in, and are easy to make. Second, our child will eat them without a fight.

Our toddler is a fairly good eater, but there are certainly areas in which they are picky. We have found that including them in the cooking process excites them and inevitably they eat more.

So whenever possible, we let them create a meal with us. Eating together as a family has also proven fruitful for our little one eating. They understand they will need to stay at the table until everyone finishes, which encourages them to continue to eat. We originally found this recipe on Momables.

We loved adding hidden vegetables to meals, so we put a little twist on these already delicious muffins.
