You can’t pick a favorite kid, but you can definitely pick a favorite meal – and ours is breakfast! My kids all have different food preferences and allergies, so it can be tough finding a meal that everyone will eat without problems. But breakfast food always seems to do the trick! Who can say no to eggs, bacon, and our favorite pancake recipe?

You all know that I’m a huge advocate for meal prepping. I love to prep lots of food at the beginning of the week so the rest of the week is (a little!) less hectic. I also use my freezer like it’s going out of style. ;) It’s always stuffed to the brim with frozen muffins, veggies, soup, and these breakfast burritos!

We love Mexican food, so we combined our two favorite things and made Mexican-inspired breakfast burritos! With Cinco de Mayo coming up, it’s the perfect time to enjoy all the delicious Mexican flavors. It’s like a fiesta at breakfast!

You can make as many as you want at once and freeze the leftovers – they make the perfect grab-and-go meals for super busy days. I also like to pack them for lunch and sometimes even enjoy them for our breakfast-for-dinner nights! With a little Mexican spice, of course.

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something fancier about eating a scone than eating a muffin or thick piece of bread. Maybe because when I think of scones, I think of scones and tea – and that just sounds fancy!

This Peaches and Cream Bread is one that’s hard to keep around! You might want to bake two – don’t say I didn’t warn you.

When time allows, I love to make some homemade snacks at the beginning of the week for my kids to munch on. That way, instead of reaching for the chips in the pantry (which are an occasional treat), I can tell them to grab the snacks that I’ve made – which are always healthier than anything you can get at the store!

It can be as simple is prepping some veggies with ranch or making no-bake bites, but I like to go above and beyond when I can. Enter this bread – the perfect treat for after school! My kids love this Peaches and Cream Bread almost as much as my famous blueberry bread from The Best Homemade Kids’ Lunches on the Planet. Like I said, it’s hard to keep a loaf around for more than a day or two.

I love when my kids help me bake this bread; the moments we spend in the kitchen together are some of my favorite. I hope you get to make this Peaches and Cream Bread with your kids and make them very happy when snack time comes around!

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 50 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 1 loaf
  • Category: Snack

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (218 g) peaches, diced fresh or frozen
  • 1 1/2 cups + 1 tablespoon (196 g) all purpose flour, divided
  • 2 teaspoons (9 g) baking powder
  • 
1/2 teaspoon (3 g) salt
  • 1 cup (230 g) plain yogurt
  • 1 cup (200 g) sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 
2 teaspoons orange zest (from 1 large orange)
 -optional
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
 (120 ml), in liquid form

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9×5″ loaf pan, dust with flour, and tap out excess. Alternatively, you can line loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix diced peaches with 1 tablespoon of flour. Using your hands, toss them around until they are all evenly coated with flour. This helps prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the pan when baking.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. In a large bowl, or the bowl of your stand mixer, mix yogurt, sugar, eggs, orange zest, vanilla, and coconut oil on low speed until all items are thoroughly combined.
  5. Slowly add the flour mix to the wet, making sure there are no clumps but careful that you don’t over mix. Gently fold flour-coated peaches into the batter.
  6. Pour the batter into the pan and bake 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Let bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before removing from pan.

One of my favorite things about St. Patrick’s Day, besides getting to spend a fun day with my kids, is having an excuse to make even more green foods. We all know how healthy green veggies are for us and our families, and this holiday, I go all out with the (naturally) green foods!

Normally, I like to get some veggies into my kids’ diets with hidden spinach in their smoothies or recipes like these broccoli nuggets or these spinach & bacon mini quiches. Any veggie counts!

There are two big reasons I love St. Patrick’s Day: 1. we get to spend time together as a family doing fun activities and participating in the festivities of the day; and 2. the green theme gives me an excuse to sneak even more healthy fruits and vegetables in my kids’ food! I’d say that’s a pretty great holiday.

No artificial food dyes here to give this smoothie its festive color – just spinach! I promise your kids won’t be able to taste it. Just tell them that leprechauns drink their green smoothies too and I’m sure they’ll gulp it down. :)

There are so many good ingredients in this smoothie that it makes a perfect balanced breakfast (for any day of the year!) or a filling afternoon snack. Bananas and apples give it a delicious fruity flavor, spinach packs nutrition, and yogurt gives it creaminess and protein. Smoothies are the best, aren’t they?

We love making green smoothies for kids that they will love and ask for again and again. I hope you love this recipe!
