Flourless Oatmeal Nutella Pumpkin Muffins - a healthy sweet treat for breakfast or snack! Plus they are naturally gluten free.

The Bug can be a tough cookie. He is independent, stubborn, and seeks to control every situation. He is not the type of kid to be affectionate all the time, so when he gives hugs and kisses and says “I love you”, you know he means it and he is feeling it deeply in the moment. But this kids cares and loves with every ounce of his heart.

Lately he has been a little mommy’s boy, which is kind of new territory for Mr. Independent. Those hugs, kisses, and loving words towards me are a lot more frequent. At the bus stop, as soon as he sees the bus, he makes sure to give me a big hug and kiss, and comes running for me in the afternoon. Before I leave his room at night, he has to say “I love you” several times. Thanksgiving projects at school came home with the words, “I am thankful for mommy”, and he has been so excited to give me my birthday present. Maybe he is trying to smooth over some of the rough patches when he doesn’t listen or behave as he should, but whatever the reason, I’ll take it.

Sure all of this makes me feel wonderful, but what I love even more is how much he cares about his brother. Sure they fight and take each others’ toys and all of that, but he always wants to know that Little Dude is safe. They share a room, with The Bug on the top bunk and Little Dude on the bottom. If Little Dude gets up early and comes into our room, as soon as The Bug wakes up and doesn’t see his brother, he runs into our room looking for him.

We’ve had a rough couple of days and Little Dude has croup. The Bug is having trouble falling asleep. Part of it is the fact that he fell asleep on a long car ride today, but he is also very concerned about his brother’s breathing. I closed their bathroom door a little more tonight, so it was a little darker in their room than usual. The Bug just came running down the stairs panicking because Little Dude was not in his bed. But he was there, tucked back into the dark corner of the bottom bunk. While I’d be happier if The Bug were sleeping peacefully, I can’t get over how cute this is.

So I think I’m going to give him veggies for breakfast. No, wait, I meant chocolate. Or how about both?

    Hi Brianne, I also added two ripe mashed bananas with an additional 1/4 cup of sugar. The results were delicious and my family loved it. I would make this again. Thanks a lot for sharing this recipe 🙂
