Sometimes it seems hard to get any extra fiber into the kids' diet. They just tend not to be big fans of foods that are naturally high in fiber. And honestly, it's just not a battle I am willing to fight. LOL!
This recipe is my absolute favorite and easiest way to get some extra fiber into their little bodies when they need it!
Now, not only is this recipe DELICIOUS, it's also super easy to make. And anything made at home is pretty good for you comparatively!
1 1/4 c. Fiber One Cereal
1 1/3 c. milk
1/2 c. raisins (or any dried fruit)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. coconut oil
1 large egg
1 1/4 c. AP flour
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pre-heat oven to 400*F. Either spray, grease, or use muffin liners in a each of 12 regular-size muffin cups.
Place cereal in a food-storage bag and crush into a crumbly powder. You are looking for as fine of a crumb as you can get.
In medium bowl, stir the crushed cereal, milk, raisins, and vanilla until well combined. Beat in oil and egg with a fork. Set aside.
In another bowl, stir the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon until well combined. Stir flour mixture into cereal mixture and combine just until flour mixture is moistened. It will be lumpy! Spoon batter into muffin cups.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
