Healthy kids recipes - easy cheese muffins

These healthy muffins are easy to make, can be as nutritious as you wish them to be as you can add little extras and your children will love to help you make them. They are great for breakfast, a packed lunch box, a snack or served with a bowl of soup.

My son about to eat his cheese muffin

250g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
80g butter, melted and cooled
150g grated cheese (cheddar, masdam, gruyere)
230ml milk
Pinch of salt and pepper (optional depending on age of child)

Preheat oven to 200 C/gas mark 6
  1. Place 12 muffin cases in a muffin tin 
  2. Sieve the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper (if using) into a bowl and stir in 120g of the grated cheese 
  3. With a hand held whisk or electric one, beat the eggs in a separate bowl and add the milk and butter and whisk everything together until well mixed 
  4. Now with a spoon stir this mixture into the bowl with the flour in and mix well 
  5. Spoon the mixture into the muffin case. (The cases should all be about 2/3rds full) Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the muffins 
  6. Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes until the topping is golden brown

Hi. Great idea for packed lunches and to have with soups. Will definitely try them out on my fussy 3 yr old. Thanks

Mac'n'cheese the best recipe I did. The only thing I added to the recipe was a tablespoon. Mustard floor. So yummy!

I tried these on both my toddlers and added a little ham and they were gone in seconds. Will cook again without a doubt.
