Bread Crumb Muffins!

Bread Crumb Muffins are unique! They are also frugal, delicious, and fun to make. They are a fun recipe to make with your young kitchen helper. Plus Bread Crumb Muffins make a great snack, spread with some peanut butter and jelly. 

This frugal recipe completely intrigued me. For some reason, we are either swimming in dry bread crumbs or completely out. Bread crumbs are one thing I never buy. Because I do not let any homemade bread go to waste...we often use bread crumbs in many of our recipes, like this recipe for Bread Crumb Muffins

I was (very!) skeptical when I saw the recipe for these muffins. Then I found myself drowning in bread crumbs, and decide to just go ahead and make a batch!  And I must tell you, we are glad I did. Bread Crumb Muffins are really wonderful, proof that delicious food often starts with the most basic of ingredients. 

Go ahead, make a batch of Bread Crumb Muffins! They are frugal, delicious, and go great with a bowl of soup or stew. 

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • whole wheat flour
  • salt
  • sugar
  • baking powder
  • oil
  • egg
  • milk
  • dry bread crumbs
  • pan spray
You will also need the following:
  • medium-sized mixing bowl
  • muffin tin
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • silicone spatula

Now we are ready to begin!

Bread Crumb muffins, use up those bread crumbs, especially from homemade bread.

Cool slightly by gently loosening muffins, prop up sideways, to prevent soggy bottoms.
