6 Ingredient Basic Muffin Recipe

Updated: Oct 23, 2019


With low sugar content and filled with fruit, oats and muesli combinations, these muffins are the perfect answer for something other than fruit, veggies and a lunch in a lunchbox.

When I cook for school lunches I tend to make muffins rather than one large cake, simply because it's easier to portion control and fit into our Bento-style lunchboxes.


I am one of those parents who does not give a "treat" in lunchboxes. While our school is strict about what is allowed in lunchboxes, my reasoning is putting a treat in a lunchbox daily becomes an everyday food not a treat. For our family, treats are for holidays and birthday parties.


With low sugar content and filled with fruit, oats and muesli combinations these muffins are the perfect answer for something other than fruit, veggies and a main lunch in a lunchbox.


With this recipe you can use any flavouring combination you like. Below are some of the ones that my twins like:

  • Carrot, apple and flaxseed

  • Apple and raspberry

  • Apple and date

  • Banana and honey

  • Pear and oats
