My boys have never been huge breakfast eaters, I’m not sure if it’s how early they need to eat before school usually or if they just aren’t hungry. Either way, it’s always been a huge battle especially during the summer months when they are out of school. When summer break rolls around I like them to take on the task of making their own breakfasts, the only rule is that they need to include a healthy option in the meal and eat by mid-morning. I often times will make a muffin with lots of fruit inside to help keep them full and get their servings of fruits and veggies, these Strawberry Banana Oat Muffins are a huge hit!
My boys love my Banana Blueberry Oat Muffins I thought I’d switch it up and give them a new flavor to enjoy, and strawberries are always available and fresh during these summer months. These muffins are perfect for breakfast, a quick snack, or even in the lunchbox during the school year. Best part is they are low in added sugar, between the oats and fruit and veggie servings in each muffin it will help keep them fuller longer too!
