All your kids will see when you present this meal is a bunch of delicious meatballs for them to try. What they won’t know is that they are full of nutritious goodness with added chia seeds, quinoa, and veggies. You can melt some cheese on top or serve them with spaghetti and a simple tomato and herb sauce.
Pear, macadamia and quinoa muffins are something a little different and both yummy and healthy. Lovely for the whole family you can eat them as they are or warm with some yoghurt and stewed fruit. If you don’t have quinoa flour you can substitute it for wholemeal (or white) flour.
‘Tagine’ is just a fancy name for a Moroccan-inspired casserole. They usually contain fruit such as dried apricots or prunes, so their natural sweetness often appeals to children.
When my bananas become inedible (happens pretty quickly in Perth after a hot day) I pop them in the freezer. They are perfect for muffins and cakes and make them yummy and moist.I whipped these up in the thermomix. They took 10 seconds and they are deliciously light and fluffy. Perfect for an after school snack. I generally encourage the children to eat them outside as they are pretty crumbly.
