Hawaiian Lunch Muffins

It might be challenging for parents and caregivers to come up with lunch box ideas for children that they would really like and eat. As a mum, I’m constantly on the lookout for kid-friendly lunch ideas that are still filling and tasty, and this one is a hit with my son!

Making these nutritious Hawaiian Lunch Muffins ahead of time is a terrific solution for hectic school days since they can be prepared in large batches and refrigerated!

For those of you with children who just love the flavour, these are just perfect for a quick and easy snack.

They have all the best bits of a Hawaiian pizza: the cheese, pineapple and ham, rolled up inside one delicious muffin. So good


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees and grease a 12-hole muffin pan.

  2. Sift the two flours, along with the salt, in a large bowl. Add the cheddar cheese, half of the mozzarella, the ham, the pineapple, and the basil. Stir until well mixed.

  3. In a separate jug, whisk together the egg, buttermilk and oil. Make a well in the dry ingredients, and pour the egg mixture in. Gently stir until just combined.

  4. Spoon the muffin mixture into holes, and sprinkle with the rest of the mozzarella cheese. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

  5. Stand in the pan for 5 minutes before removing and cooling on a wire rack.
