Breakfast has always been a hurried part of my day.  Even in the summer months I just get through it so I can start my day.  Things don’t always go so smoothly with two little girls who enjoy playing with their food as much as they enjoy eating it.  Breakfast can certainly get hectic in our household and I don’t imagine things will be any easier once they start school.

One breakfast staple I love to serve are muffins packed with sneaky superfoods.  The girls tend to wolf them down and we can all get on with our day.

I love to eat my muffins with a little bit of honeyed butter spread on them.  The problem with this is that it needs to be refrigerated which makes it less than easy to spread, even on muffins that are fresh out of the oven!

I have a solution for that by making the honeyed butter with Gay Lea’s delicious Spreadable Butter products.

I wanted to share a great recipe using Gay Lea’s Spreadables Butter that will make School Mornings a whole lot easier (and delicious!) These Browned Butter and Quinoa Peach Muffins are great to pack away in a school lunch as they are packed with protein to help fuel their day. 

 You will love the deep flavour the brown butter creates in these muffins, it’s honestly so rich tasting! 

Gay Lea’s Spreadables Butter takes traditional creamery butter and adds unsaturated canola oil to make it spreadable. Enjoy the delicious taste of
butter right out of the fridge without preservatives.  It’s also a source of 3.

For this recipe you might even consider using the Light variety rather than Regular or even  the Cinnamon Brown Sugar flavour for a nice change of pace!
