While muffins are generally a breakfast item in our household I felt that these would make for a perfect before nap time snack. Just like the Breakfast Biscuits, these muffins are made with tiny hands, tiny mouths, and tiny appetites in mind. That is what makes these so perfect for snack time.
The no frills approach worked. He loved the muffins. They have the right amount of sweetness to them and were incredibly fluffy. For as simple as they are, they are surprisingly tasty.
Next time I will use this recipe as the base and add in blueberries or chopped peeled peaches and see if he will change his tune toward a fruited muffin.
