Cheesy Bacon and Vegetable Muffins

Looking for healthy snack ideas for kids? Enjoy these quick, delicious and nutritious Cheesy Bacon and Vegetable Muffins that the kids will actually eat and love!

It is challenging trying to constantly find healthy snack the kids will actually eat. Move over boring Vegemite sandwiches, and hello Cheesy Bacon and Vegetable Muffins! 

These muffins are packed with veggies, and are a great ready-to-go sandwich substitute that you can keep in the freezer, and bring out when the kids are hungry. Bonus – you can pop these into the kid’s lunchboxes on those busy school mornings. 

This recipe really is as easy as combining the ingredients, spooning the mixture into a muffin tray, and putting them into the oven.I like to make these muffins in a regular sized muffin tray and a mini muffin tray too. They make a great after school snack for the kids too! I like to make these muffins in a regular sized muffin tray and a mini muffin tray too. I follow the same cooking process for the mini muffins, but cook them for about 5 minutes less.
