Ever hit 2pm and realised you have completely missed lunch (and maybe even breakfast...)? We've all been there! It's part and parcel of being a mum, especially in those early, hazy newborn days when you can sometimes be tied to the sofa for hours and hours on end. But a bit of forward planning on those days when life seems a bit easier can provide you with lots of yummy, easy - but healthy - treats for those tougher moments when it all gets a bit too much.
1. 4 INGREDIENT BANANA OAT BARS
At TME, we are all about quick and delicious food and these 4 ingredient banana oat bars can be eaten throughout the day. So whether you need to grab and go or enjoy post dinner as a sweet treat, these are perfect!
2. FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE AND RASPBERRY BROWNIES
We can't recommend these amazing healthy brownies enough! Perfect for when you need a delicious sweet treat when entertaining friends or because you simply love chocolate (who doesn't!) these chocolate brownies by Madeline Shaw are a winner every time.
Tip: Fresh raspberries work the best in this recipe so avoid the frozen option as this changes the consistency of the brownie.
3. DAIRY-FREE SPICED APPLE CRUMBLE MUFFINS
A twist on the traditional crumble dish, these spiced apple crumble muffins can be served as a dessert or a snack on the go. The caramel sauce is really scrummy as well!
4. 1 BOWL BLUEBERRY MUFFIN BREAKFAST COOKIES
Anything that is only '1 bowl' is a huge winner for us and these blueberry muffins are simply delicious! Gluten free and vegan so they tick the healthy box as well.
Tip: Flax eggs are a great alternative to eggs, so if avoiding eggs due to an intolerance, substitute with the flax version. For two flax eggs, use two tbsp of ground flaxseed and mix with 6 tbsp of water. Leave in the fridge for about 15 minutes to let the mixture set.
5. BANANA BREAD
A personal favourite of mine, banana bread is one cakey snack that we can eat for breakfast, an afternoon snack or as a dessert! This recipe can be made plain or with additional chocolate chips or chopped walnuts.
Tip: Serve the Aussie way, toasted with butter for a new delicious brunch option
