As much as my kids love cereal, getting them to try what they think is a boring bowl of granola has been a bit of a challenge. But in the grand tradition of modern mothers, I’ve figured out creative and delicious ways to introduce them to this slightly more refined but largely healthier breakfast cereal. One of my favorite creations is this Banana Maple Crunch Muffin recipe, featuring KIND Maple Quinoa Clusters. A fluffy, tasty muffin topped with wholesome, non-GMO KIND Healthy Grains, this is a kid-tested, kid-approved winner!
