Muffins are a great place to start with kids in the kitchen! They’re simple and typically well loved. Let the kiddos give you some creative input by allowing them to brainstorm ideas for substitutions or additions. Maybe adding in a few chocolate chips? Topping with an oat crumble? Using half blueberries, half blackberries? We love them all! We bet you’ll love what they come up with and how creative they can be!
