  • BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS I think like all parents
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS... I think like all parents I’m constantly searching for new, delicious and nourishing treats to pop in the school (and my...) lunchbox and these BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS totally hit the spot. They’re a great source of protein with both eggs and quinoa flakes in the mix, the yummiest balance of sweet from fruits and some honey or maple, and rich in fibre and healthy fats from a mix of seeds, coconut flakes and olive oil. I’ve popped some options for ingredient swaps in the recipe if you don’t have these on hand too.

    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition I often share Jet’s lunchbox on my stories and get such amazing feedback and thanks from parents so if you need inspiration (don’t we all?!?!?) then have a look on my stories reel under LUNCHBOX. This was Jet’s lunchbox today - simple ingredients made delicious and abundant in quality nutrition to keep up with his growing body and insatiable lil dude appetite! I aim to get veggies in at recess, lunch and crunch and sip, the majority of Australian children don’t eat the recommend intake of vegetables, so incorporating them in just small doses is a great way of conquering

Spiced pumpkin, quinoa and maple nuts

I think Halloween is subliminally affecting my creative brain, because I made this delicious pumpkin dish with candied (maple) nuts – see what happened there? Pumpkins and candies?!?! A few Halloweens ago I made an old Hallow pumpkin spewing guacamole out its mouth, this year going for something a little more stylish, classic AND can be served way beyond Halloween.

Enter Spiced Pumpkin, Quinoa and Maple Nuts.

I hope you love this recipes as much as I, the maple nuts may well be the end of you – so hard to resist!!! Don’t let the joy of them on this occasion mean you eat them alllll the time however. Nutritionally, a small handful nuts (brazil, cashew and almond are a super combo) for your daily snack is recommended and then a little treat like these on occasion is the way to go!
