Hide Veggies in Your Kid’s Muffins
Hide Video Transcript
SPEAKERIn the mood for muffins? Start your day with all your favorite ingredients-- blueberries, bananas, broccoli-- wait, broccoli? Yup.
Fruit and nuts aren't the only muffin friendly foods you can use. Work some veggies into the mix too. Kids need five servings of fruits and vegetables every day to give them the energy they need to be active and make healthy choices. But if they're not always wild about eating their greens, you can sneak them into a favorite muffin recipe.
The possibilities are as deep as your veggie crisper. Puree some cooked beets, sweet potato, or butternut squash. Stir in some frozen chopped spinach. Shred a few carrots or zucchini into the batter.
Mix in some things you know your kids love too-- applesauce, strawberries, peanut butter, even a handful of chocolate chips. They won't even taste the difference. And don't worry, our lips are sealed.
