Breakfast? It's the most important meal of the day - and science totally agrees! So, it's no wonder mums like us are setting those early alarms and zombie-walking to the fridge ahead of the rest to look for ingredients for the perfect morning meals.
But let's keep it real: whipping up Insta-worthy meals isn't always feasible, especially when time and energy are in short supply. And on days like those, we're all guilty of reaching for quick and easy store-bought goodies.
From honey-glazed cereals, loaded bagels, and toast with jam, we've all served one (or all) of these at least once a week. Sure, they are quick and seriously delish, but the fact remains that these sugar-laden, preservative-packed options aren't doing our health any favours. They might keep you full for a hot minute, but soon enough, you and your family will be hit with that dreaded energy crash. And who wants to feel sluggish when you're just starting your day, right?
Now we're not guilt-tripping you into preparing a gourmet breakfast every single day. What we're suggesting is that with just a bit more thought in our daily meal planning, we can keep our families satisfied, healthy, and beaming with joy. For example, why not opt for speedy yet tasty options like savoury breakfast tacos, comforting yoghourt bowls, or fluffy scrambled eggs?
But if you're on the hunt for something you can practically toss and forget about, then you've got to try out our insanely decadent Blueberry Muffin recipe!
Muffins have long been a go-to favourite in many households, thanks to their grab-and-go convenience and versatility for any time of day. With countless flavours and sizes, they're perfect for any occasion.
But let's be real: not all muffins are created equal! Some are sugar bombs and carb-loaded, sending your blood sugar on a wild ride.
That's why we at WMBT set out to craft a version that's not only a breeze to prepare with an air fryer but also health-conscious. Using simple ingredients you likely already have in your pantry, you can whip up a fresh batch anytime—perfect for delighting your little ones or gifting to friends. And the fact that you don't even need an oven to make them? That's a total game-changer!
Ready to give this recipe a go? Round up the kids, and let's get them to help as we prepare our blueberry muffins!

Did you spot those WMBT Muffin Cups we used? Yes, silicone baking is a thing! These silicone muffin (or cupcake!) moulds are an absolute dream for your easy-baking adventures. Not only are they heat and freeze-friendly, but they also boast a non-stick surface, making clean-up a breeze. Plus, they double as handy organisers for your kids' bento boxes. Talk about the versatility that every mom will love!
Once your family gets a taste of these scrumptious blueberry muffins, trust us, they'll be begging for more!
To streamline the process, consider preparing a large batch of batter that can last up to six weeks. That way, you can easily scoop out what you need whenever a muffin craving strikes. And here's a pro tip: use an ice cream scooper to effortlessly transfer the batter into the silicone cupcake moulds.
In the rare event that you have some leftovers, be sure to also store them in airtight containers to preserve their freshness. The same principle applies if you're planning to share the muffin love. Just pop them into an airtight container, secure the lid, and you've got yourself an easy, delectable gift!
