Great ideas about planning meals ahead of time and finding new ways to cook things so they're more appetizing and appealing. Both of these would be a huge help for me. What if we shared our meal plans and new recipes, too? We wouldn't say we'd have to do one a day or whatever, but just share the experiments and meal plans that turn out well.
I finally got around to trying this recipe today. I told the children (three visiting grandchildren) they were cookies, and they loved them. I suspect that if I told them they were muffins, they wouldn't even have tried them. Their dad gave this pronouncement: "They taste very....healthy."
Here's the recipe, from Sugar-Free Mom.
A couple of notes: Saying a recipe is completely sugar free, even though it has honey or stevia in it, seems a little disingenuous to me, as does adding chocolate chips for a topping. Anyway, I used guava syrup for a sweetener and these muffins/cookies tasted great to me.
But that's quibbling, because here's what's best of all: They kept me feeling full for a long time and from having a craving for more sweets like I would have done if I'd had just some oatmeal cereal with sugar, or toast with jam, or any of those "usual" breakfast foods.
