Easy Yummy Healthy Muffins That Even the Picky Kids Will Love
I love autumn because it is just perfectly cozy and a great time to make some easy, yummy, healthy muffins for even the pickiest of eaters!
Fall is wonderful. I love the sweaters, the crackling fireplaces and firepits, the hot chocolates, and pumpkin-spice everything.
I also like trying out new recipes and seeing how I can make yummy healthy foods for my family. Let’s face it, life gets hectic with kids and school and extracurricular activities and mornings are always a rush to get out the door.
So here is a easy healthy muffin recipe that I just adore. It is muffin-tastic! It is full of fresh apples, carrots, maple syrup, and even kale protein. There are no added sugars and it is just yummilicious.
I like to make mini muffins because my kids like to grab a bunch on the go. They find them easier to eat too.
Moms, I know we do not have a lot of time to cook or bake, so I tend to make bigger batches and then freeze the extras for an easy meal another day. Because, it is always nice when we do not have to make a meal, am I right? Plan ahead and life gets a bit easier.
List A –
2 cups of soft margarine from a tub
1 cup maple syrup
2 cups grated carrots
2 cups grated apples
2 cups lemon yogurt
1 cup sour cream
List B –
2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons of each: baking soda, baking powder, all-spice, cinnamon
½ teaspoon of salt
1 pack of Protein & Kale
Recipe: Apple-Carrot-Spice Maple Muffins
My kids (even the picky one) and hubby love these! We love them just as they are, but if you want to make them decadent, serve them with Philadelphia Cream Cheese Whipped Frosting! All I have to say is, “Oh my!” They taste like mini heavenly bitefuls.
Step by Step Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 and spray muffin trays with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl mix “List A” with a spoon. Then mix all of “List B” in a separate bowl and combine together.
Drop spoonfuls in the muffin trays and bake mini-muffin trays for about 9-10 minutes checking with a toothpick that centers are cooked, and stick comes out clean. Regular sized muffin tray will need to bake for about 20-25 minutes.
Let them cool for two minutes in the muffin trays and then place them on a wire rate to cool completely.
Enjoy as is or spread some whipped cream cheese frosting on top and bite into a taste of heaven!
