Hi Nap Time readers! Jen from Yummy Healthy Easy here, back with another easy recipe for you!


My mom was the breakfast queen when I was growing up. She always made something delicious for us kids before school or on weekends. These muffins are one of her favorite quick and easy breakfasts. She’s been making this recipe for years.

Back when she was a young college student, she would make these muffins for breakfast. They’re a favorite because not only are they absolutely delicious, but they have only a few ingredients and use one bowl and spoon! Double score!

Easy Breakfast Muffins -made with only a few ingredients and use only one bowl and spoon!

Yield: 1 dozen muffins

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • butter and jam for serving


Preheat the oven to 400º F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners or spray each cup with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and stir together. Add in eggs, oil and milk and mix only until combined, don't beat or overmix!

Scoop into prepared muffin tin and bake for 15-20 minutes or just until golden and tops spring back when you press on them. Keep in sealed container . These are great served with butter and jam for a quick breakfast!

What I love about this recipe is you can put the extras in a sealed container and then for a super quick breakfast, heat them up one at a time in the microwave for a few seconds. Breakfast to go! These seriously are so easy and a family favorite.

    These muffins are delish! I didn’t have milk so I subbed evaporated milk and it came out great. I also used whole wheat pastry flour and blueberries. My 4 y/o loves them too. They are coming to Disney with us for easy breakfast in the hotel!

    I tried this recipe and I can confirm that these muffins are just perfect for breakfast… with a hint of homemade blackberry jelly as far as I am concerned! Thanks for sharing!

    Very tasty! Just made a batch. Great on their own fresh from the oven or with some jam!

      SO glad you liked them Marli! Thanks for commenting.

    Thank you for this recipe. Tried it this morning, and everyone loved it! I wonder if you’ve ever tried substituting applesauce for the oil? I’ve read you can do that in baking recipes, and I’d be curious how this one would work.

    • Jamielyn posted on March 9, 2015 at 7:27 pm (#

      I have never tried substituting with applesauce, but I’m sure it would work well! :)

    Hi I have a question are the muffins mini or regular

    • Jamielyn posted on February 24, 2015 at 10:08 pm (#

      Regular muffin tins! :)

  11. Bonnie posted on April 19, 2015 at 10:16 pm (#

    I have been baking muffins for over 50 years and I loved these. Added a few blueberries from the freezer. (Stir them into the flour mixture makes for easier mixing). I may add some vanilla next for additional flavour. Simple and fast! Thank you!

    • Jamielyn posted on May 3, 2015 at 12:05 am (#

      I’m so glad you liked them Bonnie! Blueberries would be perfect in these. :)

    Thanks so much for this quick & delicious recipe! :) 

  13. Lee posted on June 23, 2015 at 12:49 pm (#

    I just made these with half white flour and half whole wheat. I also used frozen wild blueberries. So delicious!  Thank you

    • Jamielyn posted on June 23, 2015 at 8:17 pm (#

      Mmm blueberries would be perfect in these! Definitely going to try that next time. :)

  15. Julie Fogh posted on July 21, 2015 at 9:55 am (#

    Amazing! I doubled the recipe,2 tsp. Almond flavoring, and 1 cup sliced almonds. Served with pear preserves. So very good! Thanks!

    Amazing muffins! Thanks so much for sharing!
      It’s somewhat difficult to find a simple easy muffin recipe that’s this good.
    I used gluten-free grain free flour mixture substituted sugar for Stevia and substituted the oil for pumpkin Purée added a little cinnamon and instantly had the house full with amazing pumpkin muffin smell.
    Super moist super delicious and super easy.

    These were delicious after I added blueberries and vanilla. 

  18. Lusana posted on February 6, 2016 at 11:11 am (#

    What type of oil do you use?

    • I Heart Naptime posted on February 6, 2016 at 11:15 am (#

      I use organic canola oil, but you can use whatever flavor-less oil you like. :)

    So easy and extremely tasty! I was out of eggs so substituted half of a ripe banana and they were delicious!

  22. Christina posted on August 15, 2016 at 7:19 pm (#

    Absolutely loved these!! Quick and Easy😋

  23. Liz posted on August 13, 2017 at 7:13 pm (#

    Made these today for the first time, with and without blueberries. 
    They are so simply delicious either way!!! What a great recipe! And so easy and fast. Might be the first recipe that I actually have all the ingredients at home already 😂
    Wish I could post a picture of how beautifully they turn out!!

    My 11 year old nephew spent the weekend with us so I whipped up a batch of these yesterday morning for the first time. He ate at least half of them by himself and I got a “My compliments to the chef!” I made a double batch this morning and sent him home with a goody bag! 😁 Thank you for a keeper! So easy and so good!

    • Jamielyn posted on August 28, 2017 at 4:14 pm (#

      I’m so glad they were a hit! We love them with butter and jam! :)

  25. Maureen posted on September 26, 2017 at 10:27 pm (#

    This is an awesome recipe! I added some pumpkin, spices and some cottage cheese to give them a little texture. They are so good. I did also reduce the eggs to just one egee and the are still very tasty! Thanks for the recipe. I can see adding all kinds of things to these.

    • Jamielyn posted on September 27, 2017 at 2:50 pm (#

      Sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing. I’m definitely going to have to try adding pumpkin and spices this Fall!

  26. Gail Plaskiewicz posted on September 27, 2017 at 10:45 am (#

    I am a super taster and I can’t eat anything with any kind of sugar or I will hurl. Can I leave it out? I’d like to try these but I know they will be to sweet for me. Is there anything that isn’t sweet that I can add as a substitute? I might just make them for my mom just the way they are anyway but I would like to eat some too.

  27. Likefood posted on October 24, 2017 at 11:06 am (#

    Made this for a picky child, he ate it right up. They smell delicious baking. For me they are a hair too sweet, but I am more of a savory person. I wonder if they might be good with some cheese and herbs. Anyway, thanks for a very good and easy recipe. 

    • Jamielyn posted on October 24, 2017 at 3:48 pm (#

      I’m so glad he liked it! I haven’t tried making this a savory muffin but that sounds delicious! I would love to know how it goes if you try it. :)
