Muffins are always in my boys’ school lunches as I love that you can make them ahead, freeze them, and just pop them into their lunch box where they’ll defrost and be perfect and fluffy by the time it gets to morning tea time.
Plus when you make them yourself at home, you know exactly what ingredients are going into your child’s lunch.
Some shop-bought ones are frighteningly full of sugar, so make these recipes in bulk, and freeze them for later!
The secret ingredient in here (well not so secret) is the zucchini. It makes them delicious and moist, even if you do freeze them!

If you’re in the mood for something hearty and filling, Savoury Herb Zucchini Muffins are definitely worth trying.
Using wholemeal flour in your home cooking is a good way to hide a healthy ingredient from the kids…. Just remember if you are substituting wholemeal flour for normal flour in any recipe, you need to add a little bit more liquid or it will be dry! Not in this recipe though – it is made with wholemeal flour, rolled oats and sultanas!
Sultana cinnamon is a type of cinnamon that is often used in baking. It has a sweet, mellow flavor that is perfect for adding to cookies, cakes, and other desserts. However, sultana cinnamon can also be used in savory dishes, such as curries and stews.

I have included a little brown sugar in this recipe, but please, feel free to just leave it out or alternatively substitute it with the same amount of apple puree. My blueberries were a little tart, so give your blueberries a try before making these to judge how much or little sugar to add!
Muffins don’t need to be sweet! In fact, I think savory ones are so much better as not only can I make them for the school lunches, but I can heat them up with a little butter and have them for morning tea or a really light lunch. Plus they are a great way to use up odds and sods of vegetables in the fridge!
There are so many options for people sensitive to Gluten or Celiac now. With gluten-free flours being so readily available, it does make it easier to live with the condition. This recipe uses Almond Meal instead of flour, which is delicious regardless of any allergies you might have.
Feel free to reduce the amount of brown sugar in this recipe, or you can leave it out altogether if you like! Apple and Cinnamon Oat Muffins are a fall favorite. The combination of sweet apples and warming cinnamon is delicious, and the oats add a lovely texture.
