8 Yummy Muffin Recipes

Personally, I think muffins are one the best “kid foods” there are. My kids will eat almost anything if it’s baked into a little handheld snack. Want them to eat squash? Carrots? Quinoa? Bake it into a muffin!

Muffins can be breakfast, part of a lunchbox, a snack, or alongside soup with dinner. They can be sweet or savory, fluffy or dense, topped or not.

Here are eight of my personal favorite muffin recipes. What are yours?

  1. Old-Fashioned Blueberry Muffins – Citron Limette
  2. Chocolate Banana Cinnamon Roll Muffins – Authentic Simplicity
  3. Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Quinoa Muffins – Once a Month Meals
  4. Apple Cinnamon Muffins – ParentLife Online
  5. Crumby Banana Muffins – Jessie Weaver
  6. Honey-Sweetened Pumpkin Harvest Muffins – The Finer Things in Life
  7. Sweet Carrot Muffins – Spoonful
  8. Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Muffins – Annie’s Eats

Make-Ahead Breakfasts for Back to School

Whether we’re homeschooling or sending our kids off to a private or public school – or anything in between – we all have one thing in common: we have a lot to get done in the morning and need to eat something, too!

Even though I don’t have kids in grade school yet, this year my daughter will be going to preschool three days a week, plus I have an active 2-year-old boy and a needy baby. On days when we just stay home, I still feel like it’s mania around here until about 9 a.m.

One thing that works for me is having breakfast made before the morning. I like making big batches and having options in the freezer; but I’ve also been known to make coffee cake or baked oatmeal the night before. Whatever works for you is what works!
