These muffins are healthy but tasty! They are high in fibre, including resistant starch from green banana flour and oats and contain no added sugar (apart from that in the choc chips, which you could omit as a preference). They are nut free and perfect for lunch boxes. They can adapt easily to the fruit you have available. I only had 1/2 banana when making this batch so used 1/2 cup tinned pears to make up the rest. If you don’t have green banana flour on hand, you can boost the oats or wholemeal SR flour or swap it for almond meal or LSA.
BarleyMax(TM) is a CSIRO developed grain that has a large number of different fibres, including those with prebiotic properties, which act as fuel to encourage growth and activity of beneficial bacteria in our gut. These cookies incorporate a pre-launch sample of the BarleyMax flour as well as EVOO to boost the good fat content of the cookies. The kids won't know the difference and will be begging for more!
These muffins are a great way to try and boost your kids veggie intake without the battle. Swap nuts for seeds to add them to school lunch boxes.
