Healthy Baking Kids Food Lunchbox Ideas

Raspberry & Pear Wholemeal Muffins

When we think of baking, muffins nearly always come to mind. It’s one of homemade delights that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. Easy to make even the kids can get in on the action. The smell that wafts through the kitchen as they are baking is so comforting, you can’t help peering in the oven window to check when they are ready to devour.

Homemade muffins are so easy and versatile and comparing to store-bought which contain an alarming amount of refined sugar in them and some brands containing as many calories and even more than a Big Mac! Yep not kidding.

Alternatively, this recipe is refined sugar-free sweetened only with fructose free rice malt syrup and the sweetness of the fruit. A much better option especially for the kids, perfect for morning tea lunchbox ideas and a sneaky afternoon tea treat for us adults too.
