As you know school started so when the school bus drops my daughter off in the evening, she is like give me anything I can eat in a second. So I need to make it something for her after school snack. Whereas my son while coming back from his school already down in car, so when he wakes up he also asks me can I get something to eat? So I try to make snacks according to their taste, my daughter likes mango and strawberry so I made this Gluten free Mango strawberry oatmeal muffins. She also likes carrots so I also made these savory oatmeal carrot cookies.
When comes to flour I like Bob’s Red Mill and buy it all the time as I trust them a lot. As you know oats are an incredibly versatile whole grain, as it is rich in dietary fiber and can help reduce the cholesterol. This time I tried making muffins gluten free with gluten free oats and gluten free flour. Gluten Free Oats are sourced gluten free packaged in Bob’s Red Mill’s 100% gluten free facility and tested every step of the way to ensure their gluten free status.
I am not sure about making it vegan so decided to leave that part. For muffins I used both Old fashioned oats and instant oats. Also this recipe is inspired from oat bran muffins from “Little Flower Baking ”. I made lot of changes and also used fresh strawberries, mango and mango puree. If you don’t like taste of mango choose any other stone fruits. Earlier I tried mango muffins which are so delicious. I know mango and strawberry can make great pair. That is why I added in these muffins.
This strawberry mango muffin is so soft and full of fruit flavor. I think we can add oatmeal bran to make hardier, however kids may not like. This one is really soft in every bite, maybe because of addition of fruit puree and addition of yogurt and fresh fruit.
For the savory oatmeal carrot cookies, I used shredded carrot, Parmesan cheese and black pepper and oil. It has brown sugar. While discussing the recipe with my hubby he told me he doesn’t want me to sprinkle any salt, but like it you sprinkle black pepper. I did that. Cookies are crunchy with hint of peppery taste with sweetness in the background and it goes well with a cup of milk or coffee for sure.
Both Gluten free Mango strawberry oatmeal muffins and savory oatmeal cookies are great as after school snacks if you want you can put them in lunch box. My daughter like it with a cup of milk, give it try you will love it.
