Yes, I was the girl who brought VEGGIE MUFFINS to the party!
Carrots and chocolate chips, anyone?
Okay so maybe I shouldn’t call them veggie muffins but let’s be real, that’s what they are! And they are so good! These zucchini carrot muffins are packed with nutrition! Whole grain flour, oats, walnuts, veggies and applesauce all in one. These delightful muffins can be a part of a balanced breakfast or snack.
For all the adults and children out there not getting their 5-9 servings of fruits and veggies, my advice is to sneak them into things. If munching on carrot and celery sticks isn’t your thing, you have to get creative. Why not, throw veggies into your baked goods? Who would have thought carrots and chocolate chips could be so delicious?
