We’ve been back to school for a couple weeks now in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and finally back to the swing or things! Err…kinda…

As smooth as things seem, the mornings are still stressful for us sometimes. We never seem to wake up early enough. We always seem to be missing an important article of clothing. And breakfast tends to be grab-and-go. I’ve come to face it that if we need to be out the door by 7:42am, there’s nothing wrong with grab-and-go breakfast! Enter these Kid Friendly Muffins!

So I’ve been testing different Kid Friendly Muffins ideas for back-to-school, and this recipe is just perfect! It’s easy to make, uses everyday ingredients and has a simple taste that you can build on with any add-ins. They’re made with wholesome organic ingredients including Horizon Organic 2% milk, Horizon Organic Egg, organic applesauce instead of oil, organic whole wheat flour and a tad bit of sugar for sweetness. I prefer using organic everything, especially milk! Why? Organic milk means it’s non-GMO, no antibiotics used, no toxic pesticides, no growth hormones – all resulting in a healthier ingredient that my kids drink daily!

To get started, I mix the wet ingredients first.

And then the dry ingredients.

I combine the two together.

I add the toppings. In one muffin tin I decided to do half sweet and half savory.

Adding the mix-ins for the kid friendly muffins: peanut butter and jelly for the sweet muffins; grated broccoli and cheese for the savory muffins.

On one side, I used peanut butter and jelly. On the other side I used broccoli and cheese.

And the end result is a moist, healthy, wholesome kid friendly muffins recipe that is absolutely perfect for back to school!

Other Optional Add-Ins

For my add-ins I used peanut butter and jelly for a sweet variation and broccoli and cheese for a savory variation. There are endless ideas though so have your kids pick a combo they like, and here are some ideas to get you going!

  • Chocolate chips and raisins
  • Walnuts and cranberries

  • Spinach and corn
