Delicious Everyday Muffins

These delicious everyday muffins are one of our favourite go-to homemade treats. We bake them in big batches every week - the boys love helping in the kitchen, measuring and pouring and mixing and stirring - and add whatever fresh fruits or veggies we have on hand to create a new treat every time. Muffins are a fantastic snack to have in the house, especially in the summer when we're so often on our way out field tripping, picnicing, or heading to the soccer field for a practice or game or tournament.
