Over the years I’ve learned a thing or two about packing a lunch box. One thing I know – kids love muffins. I’ve made every variety of muffin – zucchini, strawberry banana, ham and cheese and more. Yep, kids love finger foods. These honey and oat peach muffins have little bursts of summery sweetness inside. Muffins are so simple to make, kids can totally lend a hand. When kids make their own food, they tend to eat it. Bake up a batch of these muffins and they will become a favourite for lunch and after school snacks.
Snack Time Honey and Oat Peach Muffins
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup large flake oats
1/3 cup sunflower oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup peeled and finely chopped peaches
Combine oats, flour, brown sugar and baking soda in a large bowl.
Mix together buttermilk, oil, honey and egg in a small bowl. Stir into dry ingredients until combined.
Stir in peaches. Don’t over stir muffin batter.
Use 1/4 cup measure to scoop batter into muffin cup liners.
One of the best things about muffins is how great they are to freeze. This recipe makes 12 muffins, pop half the muffins in the freezer and you have 2 weeks of lunch snacks prepared. That’s assuming you don’t eat them all. These can be made into mini-muffins too – simple cut the baking time down to 10 minutes. What is your favourite type of muffin? Do your kids have a favourite?
