I have no qualms eating steak for breakfast and pancakes for dinner. The other day Elizabeth stayed the night at her father’s house and when I asked her what she had for breakfast she replied “a hamburger.” That’s my girl.

Yes, she’s nearly 6 and just now becoming acquainted with them. I don’t bake all that much (I know, shocking) so unless we’re traveling and eating breakfast at a hotel, she hasn’t has much exposure to them. Then we went and stayed at my best friend’s place for a weekend. She and her hubby were off on an adventure and I went and stayed with their teens. Darla left two very large packages of muffins. Elizabeth ate her weight in muffins in a sitting, or so it seemed. When the male teen polished off the packages after she had gone to bed, and discovered this in the morning, she was not too pleased with him.  To calm her down, I had to promise her homemade muffins.

This batch made a dozen and she consumed 3 right off the bat with a large glass of Nesquik Chocolate Milk. It was impressive. By Monday morning, they were gone. Luckily these were meant to be breakfast; they were fortified with good stuff. They were made with oatmeal, Greek yogurt, bananas, and given their chocolatey sweetness from Nesquik. Fun and nutritious for her, a great way to get her day started off right.

Nesquik Chocolate Powder is loaded with stuff I was utterly unaware of. I just saw it as a delicious way to jazz up my boring milk, but it turns out Nesquik has, iron to help with growth and development, vitamin C to help support a healthy immune system, 3 essential B vitamins to help the body make and use energy, copper  which is an essential mineral that is important for iron absorption and the formation of red blood cells, and manganese to support healthy bones. So basically I can feel good about letting Elizabeth drink it. Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Muffins ~ The classic chocolate and banana combination jazzed up with oatmeal and baked into the perfect breakfast muffin ~ The Complete Savorist #StirImagination adChocolate Banana Oatmeal Muffins ~ The classic chocolate and banana combination jazzed up with oatmeal and baked into the perfect breakfast muffin ~ The Complete Savorist #StirImagination ad

    These look like the perfect breakfast/brunch muffin, or even to take along to school or work for a break/snack option. Love the flavours of chocolate and banana together.

    I’m all about non-traditional foods for breakfast – if there’s pasta salad in the fridge, I just might be munching on it at 7am. These muffins looks like a great way to kick off the day!

    I bet with the yogurt and oats these are very filling muffins– perfect to start the day with! I have to admit, baking is my addiction, so my kids get muffins all the time! But these are different from any muffins I’ve made!
