Breakfast Muffins Even My Four Year Old Can Make

  • My kids love nothing more than helping me out in the kitchen, especially at breakfast time! Of course they don’t want any help from Mum or Dad, so we always turn to foolproof recipes, just like these Breakfast Muffins which have only a few simple steps.


    In fact these breakfast muffins are so easy, my four year old can make them all by himself and will happily get the ingredients he needs from the fridge. Before they get started, I spend 10 minutes slicing up the fillings for these breakfast muffins and setting up everything they will need.  Then all they have to do is whisk the eggs and milk together (always a popular job!), pop the remaining ingredients into the muffin containers, fill with the egg mixtur and let me know they are ready to put into the oven (my job!). 

    These Breakfast Muffins are incredibly versatile and you can easily substitute the fillings to suit your preferences.  With Mother’s Day not too far away, why not get the kids to prepare these muffins (filled with your favourite fillings of course!) and ‘surprise’ you with breakfast in bed.
