Yummy Veggie Cheese Lunch Muffins

Sharing is caring!

Are you stuck in a rut with lunch and snack options for your kids?

We encourage our kids to live a healthy lifestyle and I am betting you do the same. Filling their bellies with junk is always something I try to avoid.

I am so exited to share with you this quick, easy and yummy lunch idea. (And we also have some fun snack options to share too!)

(While you’re here, make sure you check out all of our easy recipes which are perfect for busy families!)

Line your muffin tin with liners.

Full each liner half full with muffin batter.

Pop them in an oven that has preheated at 350°. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a fork comes out clean.

WARNING: these smell amazing while they’re cooking.

savory muffin batter

I served ours with some butter while they were still warm.

These make a perfect lunch muffin, or even a savory breakfast muffin. (You could add bacon for a breakfast option!)

These would also make a yummy afternoon snack.

Speaking of yummy snacks, I know I have shared with you before that I keep a snack bucket in our pantry and a snack drawer in the fridge.

Here are two new items I am keeping in our snack stations right now…..

These are perfect after school snacks that my kids love (or during school in our case since we homeschool)!

Those crackers come in peanut butter or cheese. The cheese flavor is our favorite.

These creamy milk and fruit squeezes are awesome too!

The next time you’re at the store you can also look for Horizon’s new fruit snacks, apple clusters, fruit crunchers and more!

Each of these also work perfectly in your kiddos lunch box!
