Thank you to Nestlé for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try Nestlé® Nesquik®!
What would it be like to be a kid again? Watching my kids I get a glimpse of the wonder and excitement of youth. In their eyes the world is set before them and they truly see themselves as being able to do anything! I always want to encourage them to be who they were made to be and to explore the world before them. One of the many jobs I have as a parent is to assist them in growing, learning and being all that they can be. One of the ways that I do this is by making sure they start their day with adequate nutrition.
This Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins with Nesquik recipe is a quick and easy recipe that will be great for the start of a new day!
My oldest girl actually came up with this recipe and I helped her with it a little bit. We used the Nesquik in the batter and it tasted great! It’s so neat to see her growing up before my eyes.
I love the way that she experiments in the kitchen and it’s so nice to have someone else help me meal plan.
My youngest daughter is super creative as well. She loves to draw beautiful pictures and she is very active in tumbling. She wants to be a dancer when she grows up and I know that nutrition plays an active role in her aspirations.
Nesquik Chocolate Powder provides essential vitamins and nutrients to support my kids’ growing bodies and brains!
This is a healthier Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins breakfast recipe that my kids love to eat!
Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins with Nesquik
- 2 cups of self rising flour
- 1 tsp . baking powder
- 1 tsp . baking powder
- 1/4 tsp . salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup Nesquik
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 cup milk
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp . vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup peanut butter chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffin pan or add cupcake liners. Sift the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, Nesquik and salt into a large bowl. Use a balloon whisk to mix in the sugar. Measure the milk and oil into a bowl and then add the egg and vanilla extract and beat it all together thoroughly. Pour the liquid into the center of the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined (do not over stir). Fold in the peanut butter chips. Divide the mixture evenly between the 12 liners. Bake in the middle of a preheated oven for 15 minutes until well risen. Remove from the oven and allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Every year I ask the girls to write down what they want to be when they get older. They draw out pictures and we document them for future reference. It’s neat to see their imagination unfold!
What is it that inspires your little ones to dream?
