Are you struggling to get the kids to eat their veggies? These deliciously sweet breakfast muffins contain not one, but two high fiber green veggies, sneakily hiding behind the sweet apple cinnamon flavor. The ingredients list looks long, but the method is simple and quick.
The addition of fresh apples allowed us to lower the amount of brown sugar that went into it, which is always a good thing – and the kids will never notice! They are moist, sweet and so good delicious!
These muffins can be made in larger batches (just double the recipe) and easily frozen. To defrost and reheat, simply microwave on high for 1 minute, making them an excellent Sunday night snack or a breakfast on-the-go when there is no time for anything else.
