Once upon a time…I stumbled upon a healthy muffin recipe that I decided to try. I tried this after finding out that my son had quite a few food sensitivities – so I was looking for something that didn’t contain the top eight food allergens. After tweeking it and rearranging a good bit, I had a health muffin recipe that my boys LOVED. I mean just LOVED. That one recipe has been so amazing and flexible, I’ve loved using it to create many more healthy muffin recipes!
The reason that I kept creating more healthy muffin recipes was that once we had a muffin that the boys loved and that I felt confident was actually adding to their nutrition for the day – it was an easy go-to. Sometimes we had healthy muffins as part of our breakfast. There was always a muffin available for a quick snack. They’re tiny and portable. Children can get them independently! (Can I get a fist bump there???)
Having these healthy muffin recipes around just made life easier. A muffin made my life easier. Go figure. So I’m sharing my healthy muffin recipes with you and I’ll keep creating more! You’ll find them all right here; you should know that the chocolate chocolate chip muffin was muffin ground zero 🙂
Like I said, one of the reasons that I love all of these recipes is because I feel that they are actually adding to our nutrition for the day. Children don’t take in a lot of calories as compared to the amount of nutrients that they need. I feel like it’s important to make sure that they eat as many nutrient dense foods as possible. While muffins wouldn’t usually top that list, I feel pretty good about these.
Let me know which recipes you try and what you think!
