8. Apple & sultana muffins
Most kids love apples and sultanas, so treat them to these apple & sultana muffins for a weekend breakfast. Grated apple makes these muffins moist, and wholemeal flour instead of the regular kind will keep bellies full for longer.
9. Courgette muffins
Vegetables for breakfast? It will work, we promise! You can’t really taste the grated courgette in this courgette muffins recipe – it’s just there to add moistness, and to act as a secret hit of veg. Leave the soft cheese frosting off, if you think it’s too much for breakfast.
10. Banana and blueberry muffins
Low in fat, these banana and blueberry muffins are bound to be a hit with children. It’s a great recipe for using up overripe bananas, and the egg whites make for a really fluffy texture. Add porridge oats on top for decoration.
