Muffins for the morning rush

Breakfast is the most vital meal of the day. However, a quarter of Canadian moms (26%) feel they are too rushed to prepare breakfast for their children in the morning. As breakfast champions, Nutella is highlighting the importance of breakfast, and providing tips and helpful recipes. One strategy to help during the morning rush is to choose a dish that can be created in advance, such as Nutella breakfast muffins. This allows less time to be spent on meal preparation in the morning and more time enjoying breakfast together as a family.
