Our family eats a lot of eggs during the week. I enjoy the convenience of a hard-boiled egg at snack time, and they are baked into many of my favourite meals.
As a parent, I appreciate that they pack a punch where nutrients are concerned and they are a great source of energy for our girls.
For this reason, I am always looking for ways to get eggs into our meals and snacks and I’ve come up with a great, healthy recipe that kids and adults are sure to love. I consider this recipe a cross between a crêpe, and a breakfast muffin. Once cooked, they transport well so you can toss some into a lunch bag for snack time on the go.
These crêpe bites are small so they are easy to handle, especially for little hands, and they taste great on their own. I also like to eat them with a raspberry puree maple syrup. They can be eaten warm or cold.
What I like best about this recipe is that it omits the cups of sugar that most cupcake / muffin recipes call for and only uses a small amount of agave and vanilla extract. So kids will get the benefits of the eggs and other ingredients without all of the sugar.
- 4 eggs
- 1 banana
- 1 tbsp agave
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup strawberries
- 1 cup flour
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Celsius.
- Using a standing mixer, lightly beat eggs, banana, agave, and vanilla extract together until completely mixed.
- Add milk and strawberries and blend slowly.
- Add flour into mixture slowly and blend until well combined.
- Lightly grease mini muffin tins with oil (I used canola) and spoon mixture into tins leaving a very small bit of room near the top of the tin.
- Bake for 12 - 13 minutes at 375 degrees Celsius.
- Let cool for one minute then remove from tin to continue cooling on a wire rack.
- This recipe makes 36 mini muffins.
- Store left over muffins in the fridge.
