I love muffins. I like to imagine I am practicing portion control when I am eating one. Of course the muffins I tend eat are from coffee shops and bakeries and are roughly the size of my head. When you make muffins yourself at home using a standard sized muffin tin, you can at least practice some portion control. Don't get me wrong, I am not touting any of these muffin recipes as low calorie food options. But you can have one of these muffins and not feel guilty. You will also save a bunch of money by making them yourself rather buying them at your favorite overpriced coffee shop. These 25 Muffin Recipes include sweet and savory options and many are kid friendly. If your mornings are generally busy, make a batch of muffins ahead of time, freeze them and pop one in the microwave for a few minutes in the morning.
One of my favorite muffin making tips is to make a small batch. Halve or quarter a recipe and bake them in toaster oven. I use a smaller muffin tin that is made specifically for toaster ovens. This works great if you don't have a big family or just want to try out a recipe.

DO YOUR KIDS LOVE COOKING?
I have long been a proponent of cooking with kids. There are so many things kids learn helping out in the kitchen. Math, reading, chemistry and cooperation and more are used while following a recipe.
