 Maple Muffins for kids: easy, healthy and fun recipe for kids

When my daughter handed me the recipe, she said: mommy it’s a healthy recipe that we need to bake. I love when the school teaches healthy habits to the kids! It’s a great way to give kids the tools they need to fight childhood obesity.  And I laugh when my daughter gives me such orders (I don’t like orders from my kids but don’t mind this one). Besides, I think I am raising a future baker! I mean, each time my daughter sees me in the kitchen: she asks: what are we baking today? Besides I believe that baking and cooking encourages kids to read.

Today we are baking some flower maple muffins for kids!


  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of vegetable oil. I used Canola.
  • ½ cup of maple syrup
  • 1 cup of oat
  • 1 ½ cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of bicarbonate soda
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles (optional)
  • ¼ cup of icing sugar (optional)

The last two ingredients are optional. Use them if you’d like to decorate your muffins. The original maple muffins for kids did not call for decorations but my daughter handed me the sprinkles and wanted to decorate them.

Make them:


  • In a large bowl, mix egg, oil and sugar
  • Add oat
  • Add the flour
  • Slowly add the milk
  • Bake on 350F for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.


How to decorate this delicious easy and healthy recipe for kids:

  • Add 2 tbps of sugar to the icing sugar

  1. Looks really good. I would skip the vegetable oil and use apple sauce instead though. You get the same result believe it or not, but without all the oil :)

  2. Your Muffins look delicious! Thanks so much for sharing your awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you have a great week and come back soon!
