Recipe For Breakfast Cookie/muffin?
0

12 posts in this topic

Hi, My son (age 5) is growing increasingly and severely picky about breakfast foods. Right now, he will only eat pancakes and while I am happy to do that, I want to work on adding more nutrition in his morning. Does anyone have any good (and EASY!) breakfast cookie or muffin recipes? He really doesn't like cinnamon but other than that I am willing to try whatever. I would love to find a quinoa cookie but I haven't found anything I like when I google for that. Any of you sitting on my miracle recipe?

Sorry, I don't have your miracle recipe but I did go through the same thing with my son. Perhaps you can start by adding more nutrition to his beloved pancakes? I always add several tbsp. of hemp hearts as well as mashed banana and/or berries or other fruits to pancakes mixes. You could also use chia, flax, and probably even some form of quinoa ( maybe flakes?). I also gave my son "special" weekend pancakes; thin buckwheat crepes filled with organic yogurt & warm fruit then sprinkled with hemp hearts & a drizzle of honey. He liked these so much that they were a great transition to breakfast parfaits; layers of fruit, yogurt, hemp hearts & honey drizzle (in a parfait glass, of course!). Good luck, hope this helps.

Here is a thread from a few years ago:

I have made all of these recipes in May for my 23 yr old daughter, she hates the kitchen.

see link below on same thread.

I forgot about this recipe, thanks for your muffin question. I can make these to take her on my next visit. You could put tiny chopped ham bits or bacon in them. Have your son decide what he would like and if he wants to help make them. Try 1/4 cup loosely packed pepperoni, etc.

I made muffins for my other daughter with this recipe, she loved them cuz shes a gluten-free vegan. 1/2 recipe made about 9 muffins.

I made this earlier in the week and it was wonderful! http://www.elanaspantry.com/paleo-breakfast-bread. My gluten eating husband loved it. I reduced the cinnamon to 1 tsp although I'll bet you could leave it out completely (maybe add some vanilla for flavor?), and added a handful of chocolate chips. I was able to throw it together in under 10 minutes. I liked it because it was sweet but not too much so and had a lot of protein.

Hi, My son (age 5) is growing increasingly and severely picky about breakfast foods...

This reminds me of my mother always trying to make me eat breakfast.

The harder she tried, the less I would eat. I got less picky once she let it go.

Now, only in the countries with the highest percentage obese people, breakfast seems to be considered to most important meal of the day... *-)

Does he like other foods? Sometimes when my boys get bored of breakfast foods, they eat other things. It might be a grilled cheese sandwich or leftovers from the night before. As long as they eat something that is half way decent I don't make a fuss.

Yeah, we seem (at least in America) to have this idea "this food is breakfast, this other food is lunch, and do not mix with dinner foods." Mix it up. We have done cheeseburger patties for breakfast, and pancakes for dinner. Mix it up and as young as he is he might even find it a bit exciting. :)

I so agree with this. Whoever brainwashed us into thinking the above is written in stone deserves to have a few wheat kernels placed in his food. :angry:

We mix it up, too. Sometimes I make egg dishes for dinner and sometimes we may have stir fries for breakfast. We love leftovers at our house. :) Variety is key.

I have so many muffin recipes it's not even funny. I posted a few last week I think...

this is super easy and tasty: you could leave the cinnamon out.

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Squares

1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup milk

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 large mashed banana

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Mix together the quick cooking oats, light brown sugar, baking powder, kosher salt and ground cinnamon.

Add in the vanilla extract, milk and egg. Mix the ingredients together.

Then add in the mashed banana and peanut butter. Combine all of the ingredients.

Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 8 by 8 inch metal baking pan. Bake at 350 F degrees for 20 minutes.

Cut into squares and enjoy!

These are delicious, I use Better Batter gluten free flour in them and they store really well. We used to have them (non gluten-free, from the market) when my kids were younger and they loved them. I was tickled when I found this recipe and was able to alter it. :)

Corn Toasties

1 stick unsalted butter, melted

1/2 c + 2 T sugar

2 eggs

1 t vanilla

1 1/2 t baking powder

3/4 c + 2 T cornmeal

1 1/4 c all-purpose gluten free flour

1/4 tsp xanthan gum (omit if flour blend has it)

1/2 t salt

1 c milk

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a medium-sized bowl mix together the melted butter & sugar. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Add the baking powder, cornmeal, flour & salt. Mix until everything is moistened. Stir in milk & mix until almost smooth (a few lumps are fine).

Lightly grease a 10" x 15" baking sheet with 1/2" sides. Pour the batter into the baking sheet, spreading into all the corners. Tap the baking sheet on the counter 1 or 2 times to even the batter out.

Bake for about 25 minutes. The edges should be brown & pulling away from the side of the pan & the top show be set. Allow to rest in the pan on a rack for 5 to 10 minutes. Using a sharp knife cut into individual pieces I cut it into eight 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" rectangles.

Store the toasties wrapped in plastic wrap or in a resealable bag in the refrigerator for use over the next week. For longer storage keep them in the freezer.

To serve toast until browning & top with butter, syrup, honey or jam.

Thanks so much for the tips! The best idea so far this week is to have non-breakfast foods (why this did not occur to me before, I don't know). He likes what we call "pizza crackers" - gluten-free crackers with a dollop of marinara and sprinkled with cheese and then microwaved. I add fruit as a side. Still, I can't wait to try some of these ideas - I am sure there is a way to ease him into eating a greater variety. He is so food averse (he has always been this way) that I grow extremely concerned about him growing, etc. (all this for another thread, I guess). My husband thinks I throw too much emotion into getting him to eat and that perhaps by making it such a big deal, I am hurting my cause. Will keep plugging along. Thanks again!

We do lots of smoothies for breakfast. I keep frozen bananas on hand and bags of frozen berries. Blend them up with milk (sometimes coconut milk), add a little greek yogurt for protein, sometimes a few handfuls of fresh baby spinach and breakfast is done. If you add a tablespoon of ground flax or chia seeds, it is really filling.

Favorites:

Peanut butter - banana

mango, pineapple, banana

cantaloupe, raspberry, blueberry

I find that a stick blender works best and makes clean-up a snap.

(if you want to add spinach, use only light fruit (banana, pineapple, melon, etc.) and skip the strawberries and raspberries. The green and red combination makes an ugly and unappetizing color.)

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
