Muffin Tins – A Busy Mom’s Best Friend

Over the last few months I’ve realized that eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard or way more time consuming, it just requires a little bit of planning ahead! One of my FAVORITE ways to plan ahead is by making recipes using a muffin tin. It creates a little batch of goodness that will last all week! I’ve been loving making muffins for me and mini muffins for my kids. The mini muffins are perfect to send to school or to grab as a healthy snack, or to use as breakfast… really any time works for these cute little meals and it feels great to have a healthy option right there in the fridge! I usually just quickly warm them up in the microwave and they’re ready to go. Here are a few of my favorites!! Feel free to print out these little recipe cards, too 🙂

First are these healthy toddler muffins, you’ve actually seen me post about these here on the blog before. While they aren’t completely “clean” they pack in a lot of goodness for the little ones, and they taste great!

What I love about the last 2 is that they can so easily be modified to fit your tastes! You can change up the fruit in the blueberry oat cups that you put on top, or even use raisins or chocolate chips to make them a little sweeter! And the egg cups can be modified SO many ways – just use whatever veggies you like best, or whatever you already have on hand!

These recipes originally came from here, here, and here.
