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!

  2. They look so delicious and simple makes them even better! :) 

  3. I made these just a little bit ago for my family’s breakfast in the morning and they are AWESOME!!! thanks for sharing the recipe :)

  4. 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! 

  5. I love how easy these are! I always need quick breakfast ideas, thanks for sharing!

  6. 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!

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

  8. 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.

  9. Hi I have a question are the muffins mini or regular

  10. 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!

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

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

  13. nice recipies excited to see what else you come up with

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

  15. 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.

  16. These were delicious after I added blueberries and vanilla. 

  17. What type of oil do you use?

  18. OMG these are so easy to make and taste amazing!!!!! I’m only 12 and made these with ease! Love them love them love them

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

  20. Absolutely loved these!! Quick and Easy😋

  21. 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!!

  22. 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!

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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. 

  26. Made them for my granddaughter, she loved them and so did I

  27. I love the flavor and easy of making the batter, however the 400 degree temperature does NOT work with my aluminum Wilton cupcake/ muffin pan. Especially if I don’t have cupcake/ muffin papers. I have turned the temp down to 390 degrees and still the sides and bottom are CHARRED! Next time maybe 350 degrees?? So frustrating with a limited budget for a large family! I use as much organic, good quality products as possible. 

    • I’m sorry you are getting burnt muffins. Every oven cooks things so differently! I would definitely recommend turning down the oven and also try decreasing the time and just checking them with a toothpick!

  28. Tried this recipe. It’s amazing! My new go to muffins with a simple taste they’re great to add a lemony glaze or a cinnamon twist or just to have with some yogurt and fresh fruit! Enjoyed by all my guests can’t wait to try more recipes from here.
