These whole wheat mixed berry muffins are filled with naturally sweet raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries and drizzled with a yummy glaze. They are a perfect lunch box item because they travel well and pair perfectly for breakfast or lunch.
I made these muffins with part white whole wheat flour and reduce the sugar to make them a better option for kids’ lunches.
I love baking muffins because they are delicious fresh out of the oven and extremely easy to freeze and pull out individually for a quick breakfast or snack. These whole wheat mixed berry muffins can also be taken from the freezer in the morning, tossed in a lunch box, and will be defrosted by lunch time.
These muffins are made with Horizon® organic milk. Their milk comes from cows not given growth hormones* or antibiotics and raised on farms that follow sustainable organic practices. I like that the milk adds a nice moisture to the muffins and it’s something I always have on hand.
I also used Horizon Organic Half & Half for the glaze on top. It made the drizzle rich and creamy.
I was able to pick up both Horizon products at Walmart.
