Feel like you’re in a fancy bakery by enjoying some scones for breakfast! These 6 healthy scones are light and won’t weigh you down all day.
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!
I love to bake a batch of scones with my kids on the weekend to enjoy for breakfast. There’s so many different flavors you can make! These 6 healthy scones won’t weigh you down and make you feel heavy all day. They’re made with healthier ingredients and still taste delicious!
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!
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
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.
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.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
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.
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.
Pour the batter into the pan and bake 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before removing from pan.
Enjoy a festive Shamrock Green Smoothie this St. Patrick’s Day! Packed with nutritious fruits and veggies, this is a healthy smoothie that your kids will love drinking.
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!
