They always look like you went to a lot of trouble, but muffins are quick and easy.   I confess, I used to whip them up regularly for a hot breakfast when my kids were little.   Keep the ingredients on hand, and they’re actually convenience food for the hyperactive little ones.

These whole wheat muffins have an extra attraction, and that chocolate is a good energy producer.
