A Weekend Tradition


One of Rowan’s favorite things to do now a days is bake together. As soon as you start cooking anything she drags her little chair over to see what you are doing. She insists on doing “eggs and milk, Mommy!”. She doesn’t care what we make as long as we use eggs and milk. We usually just end up making some sort of banana bread with the bananas that didn’t get eaten that week. It’s turned into a fun little weekend tradition!


Before we put the muffins in the oven, I asked Rowan if she wanted to help me “sprinkle” the crumble topping on each muffin. She said in her usual response “yeah, sure Mom, sure!” Next thing I know she had pulled out green sprinkles looking to “sprinkle” them on the muffins. Ha! It was too cute to not let her have one special sprinkle muffin.

On Saturday we used this recipe to make Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Banana Peanut Butter Muffins (now that’s a mouth full!)

  1. It’s so cute that she loves to bake with you!
