Healthy Muffin Recipes for Kids
For me, muffins speak “winter.” I rarely fire up the oven to bake muffins in the spring or summer. So, with winter on its way out (hopefully!), one last batch of muffins for the winter is due.
I’ve pulled together 23 healthy muffin recipes from my trusted dietitian colleagues. They do a great job working in flavor, nutrition and kid-appeal all at once!
Most kids I know love muffins. For breakfast, snack time, or part of the lunchtime fare, muffins are a versatile way to pack in nutrition, especially fruits and vegetables. Got a picky eater in the house, an athlete, or wanting to build more variety into your meal and snack offerings? Give these healthy muffin recipes a try!
Better yet, stock up on some of these in the freezer and have them all spring and summer long.
