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 any the top eight food allergens – tree nuts, eggs, dairy, wheat, soy, peanuts, fish, or shellfish. 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. Young children can get them independently! And they are easy enough that older kids can make them on their own – or with little supervision. (Can I get a double fist bump there???)
A Muffin Recipe Made My Life Easier. #truth
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 recipe with you and all the variations that I’ve tried so far. 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!
