So if you guys have been following my Instagram stories you will know I came back from Istanbul 2 weeks ago and I had the BEST time. Mini vacay for the hubby and I, we loved every minute of it! I really needed a break and was looking forward to this holiday for 7 months since we booked it so early on in the year.
But now we are back to reality with kids, housework, nursery runs and not to mention SNACKS. Loads of snacks.
As soon as I came back I made these banana walnut crumb muffins. I make these a lot and more so now since I started putting a delectable walnut crumb on top. They down these in minutes.
Beautiful bakery looking muffins loaded with goodness AND easy to make – WINNING!
I try to incorporate walnuts into the kids diet almost daily. Walnuts are amazing for brain development. These little beauties even look like the human brain. I googled this and was mind blown at how much the brain and walnuts look similar. It can’t be a coincidence that these nuts do so much for brain development.
Walnuts contain more essential fatty acids like Omega -6 and Omega – 3 than most other nuts. They also contain so many other benefits like vitamins varying from vitamin C, vitamin B6, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, and folate, as well as minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and zinc.
So you guys can see why I am such a big fan of walnuts!
Throw a handful of walnuts into you daily diet by adding into
- Granola and ect.
So easy to hide into kiddy snacks also, then blend them into crumbs by using a food processor and your good to go!
Seriously get walnutting like now..
