Ingredients

  • 2 large over ripe bananas, smooshed with a fork
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries (or whichever berry you prefer)
  • 1 cup of cereal of choice. I used oats, but I’ve used crushed Weetbix too
  • 2 cups plain spelt flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 50g butter, melted and cooled

 

Method

First term of school is upon us and we’re back to the Groundhog Day of lunchbox duty. These muffins are delicious and wholesome, and a good low GI cereal adds some extra good energy to keep kids going for the day.

These muffins are perfect any time of day, but for lunch box ease you can even make a double batch and stick them in the freezer and pull them out when you need them. They’ll be defrosted by lunch.

1. Pre-heat oven to 180C°. Place your muffin cases into the tray.

2. Pour flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and cereal and make a little well in the centre.

3. Place your eggs, milk, banana and melted butter into a separate bowl and stir until all is well combined.

4. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and toss in your berries. Give it a good stirring until just combined.

5. Spoon into your muffin cases and pop in the oven for about 20 minutes until they’re golden brown and a skewer comes out clean.

6. Cool on a wire rack and you better try one while they're still hot because they’re the bomb straight out of the oven!

How dogs could make children better readers

Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
