Bookmark this! Frills in the hills Muffin Encyclopedia - 25 muffin recipes to inspire you!



I find muffins are the staple of my lunchbox arsenal - they are quick, easy and produce big yields that can be frozen and added to lunchboxes easily.   I usually like to have two types going at one time, allowing some variety.  I don't put them in every day but on those busy days they are a godsend.  I also like to take some out in the morning to thaw for afternoon tea whilst we're bustling between activities - gymnastics, touch-football, netball, tap-dancing this year for us!

I've marked them to indicate how many you get - 'makes' and how long it takes - 'takes' and whether they meet the nut-free policy many schools have now 'lunchbox friendly'.  I've also divided them into sweet and savoury - not everyone has a sweet tooth and a lot of the savoury ones are great accompaniments to soup in winter..

So have fun, tell me your favourite and share with your friends who no doubt like us, need a short-cut every now and again - lots of recipes in one spot!
