I’ve always loved banana bread. It’s like a sweet dense cake that you’re allowed to eat for breakfast. Unfortunately, in the past few years, I’ve realized that just because a bread is made with fruit, doesn’t mean it’s healthy. Unwilling to give up my banana bread craving, I decided that I just had to come up with a healthier version.My friend Lori is an amazing baker, and when I saw her “In Your Face Banana Bread“, I knew it would be the perfect recipe to adapt. There are five, yes FIVE, mushy bananas in this one loaf of bread. This means that even though I’m making it with whole wheat, it turns out surprisingly moist.

Whether you have a special someone, children who love cute food, or just want to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day, these muffins are the perfect breakfast treat. I noticed that most of the Valentine’s Day breakfast recipes out there were typically sugary and full of empty carbohydrates. These past few months, I’ve been thinking a lot about how cooking is truly an act of love. I’ve pondered the reasons I cook for the people in my life, and realized that it’s to make them feel loved, bring them joy, and to comfort them.
My conclusion then is that if I really care about them, I should feed them with healthful food made with whole ingredients that will nourish their bodies. But I also don’t want them to feel deprived, or even worse, think that healthy food is being forced upon them. That’s where the idea for this adorable muffin recipe came from. Beautiful chewy muffins made with whole wheat, cranberry applesauce and organic sucanat. Full of flavor, health, and love.I’m always searching for Valentine’s Day recipes, and especially recipes for kids to use in cooking classes. After making this batch of muffins, I decided to bring them to the house of some special friends we were visiting that evening. They have three children ages 2, 4 and 6.
