Back to SCHOOL!

Every time I think about that, I think of that old school supply commercial that had “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” playing in the background. The adults dancing down the aisles,  joyously buying their kids school supplies in anticipation of the freedom school can bring to parents.

I must say it really does bring some freedom for me. Once The Cohen heads to full time kindergarten (mandatory in my province), I’ll have that much more time to work on projects at home. I still have Isla, the 3 year old, to contend with, but with part-time preschool at least I will have a few hours to myself every week. With that being said though,school did come with some not unexpected tasks. I have to think of things to pack for lunches, I have to get up early (not like when you are a work-at-home mom…I get up when I want), I have to make sure people are in certain places at certain times. It’s all very stressful really.

But with planning comes de-stressing. I bought some really cool lunch boxes from Lunch Bots:

Lunch Bot
I fill them full of vegetables, fruit, sliced meats rolled around cheese, cherry tomatoes, pepperoni, left overs, muffins, olives, pickles, nuts, etc. It’s all very fun to pack for me and fun for the kids to eat! They are great for the littlest one, but a tad small for the bigger guy, as he is school for six hours, he needs two of these guys to make enough room for it all. At $25-30 per container though, I wasn’t about to buy multiples for each child. The older one got a silicone container with two compartments that I fill with little metal canisters.

So I began making all kinds of recipes that I can use for snacks. I like to plan, and so I have lists and lists and lists of muffin varieties, different ideas for easy snacks and things to cut into fun shapes. The rest of the year is going to be a fun, yet haphazard, foray into lunch experimentation…I hope you’ll join me!

Try these strawberry muffins for your kids lunch and let me know what you think!

Strawberry Muffins

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 12 Muffins

Strawberry Muffins

Ingredients

  • Dry ingredients:
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup arrowroot starch/flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup freeze dried strawberries
  • Wet ingredients:
  • 6 eggs at room temperature, beaten
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12 tin muffin pan with paper liners or grease liberally, or you could also use silicone.
  2. Whisk dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. In a smaller bowl, beat the eggs until fluffy and well mixed. Add in the remaining wet ingredients (depending on the temperature of your ingredients, the coconut oil may harden, but as long as you whisk immediately after pouring it in, the pieces will be small and the muffins will turn out great).
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and whisk until completely blended. Allow to stand one minute to thicken. Portion out evenly into the muffin tin.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack in tin for ten minutes. Remove from tin and cool completely.

Notes

Store muffins in refrigerator for longer shelf life. They also freeze very well and when placed in a lunch box first thing in the morning are perfectly defrosted for snack time!
