I am always on the lookout for a new muffin recipe - I came across this newest one that looked somewhat healthy but delicious and decided to give it a try. They are chock-full of fruit - strawberries, blueberries, and banana - but I am sure they would work well swapping in any fruit you want. You could switch raspberries for the strawberries, fold in chopped apple for the blueberries - there are tons of possibilities depending on what you have on hand. As with all recipes that call for nuts, feel free to leave them out. From a recipe by Sunny Anderson, foodnetwork.com.tags: breakfast snacks lunch box fruit bake more
It's hard to believe that I (lover of all things chocolate) have never made chocolate chip muffins, but it's true. My kids recently discovered them at Tim Horton's with friends, which inspired me to make some hopefully healthier and more reasonably sized versions at home. They make a great after-school snack or even dessert – the sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on their tops make them a little bit special. Like most muffins, they freeze well. Adapted from Joyofbaking.com.

Always on the lookout for a new muffin, I went to my old friend Joy the Baker's blog and came across these berry streusel muffins with the right amount (read: not too much) of jam swirled in. These will be a new regular in my repertoire for sure. Joy says any kind of berries (including frozen, which I used here) and jam can be used, an added bonus!tags: breakfast snacks lunch box fruit rice, grains and breads bake more
These muffins are hearty and satisfying, yet stil have only about 150 calories and 4 1/2 grams of fat in each. Plus, they freeze well. Now, I'm not going to pretend that these could even compare to a coffee cake muffin or banana streusel, but if you are looking for a healthy starter in the morning, they are a good bet.tags: breakfast snacks lunch box fruit rice, grains and breads bake more
