Back-to-school time is on the horizon, and I’m slowly but surely pulling together recipes for lunch boxes and after-school snacks. Though we’re diving into homeschooling this year, we still have field trips (and our little still goes to daycare) so lunchboxes are definitely on our mind, and having delicious snack options for after school is too!
These delicious, simple (and vitamin c packed, immune-boosting) muffins are nutrient-dense, kid-friendly and the perfect school lunch lunchbox addition or after school snack (though they are not nut-free, so it all depends on your kiddo’s school policies!). They even make a great on-the-go breakfast!
