Muffins with: NO refined sugar, NO starches, and that have fruits, vegetables, AND whole grains?! This is one muffin you’ve got to try!
Another creation to get healthy foods into my son’s belly! As if it wasn’t enough that he had an exorbitant number of sensitivities, on top of all THAT, he’s p.i.c.k.y about whole (non-pureed) foods! I am so sick of feeding him baby food, and at 18 months, he is more than ready to be using those chompers he worked so hard to get in!
Not only were these a hit with him (minus the chocolate of course!)…the rest of us went nutzo over these moist muffins too! We know YOU will too, so put your bakers hat on and whip up a batch of healthy goodness for YOUR family OR just yourself!
