Pretty much every kid in the world is born with a genuine sweet tooth. Often times, it’s difficult to get your toddler to eat anything, let alone healthy snacks and meals throughout the day. When you have a picky eater, you might find yourself resorting to getting grains, protein and other nutrients in them any way possible. An easy solution is processed, store bought cereal bars. Even the healthier, natural options still have a lot of added sugar and preservatives.
If your kids love the taste of cereal bars, but you don’t love the unnecessary ingredients, give our Rolled Oats Muffins a try. Each “muffin” is packed full of nutritious rolled oats, organic applesauce, natural honey and just a tiny bit of brown sugar. Your entire family will love them, and the best part is, you can add any of their favorite fruits, nuts or chocolate chips to each individual muffin to make the entire batch customizable to every member of your family!
