Healthy Veggie Muffins
Yes, I was the girl who brought healthy 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.
I brought these to a super cute galentine’s party this weekend and did not even get one sarcastic comment. Much to my surprise, everyone was asking about the recipe! So be the person who brings the healthier alternatives, just taste test them before you do (I did also provide champagne just in case). It makes my day getting people interested in healthy eating and it’s really cool to be able to share nutrition information with my girls. Mission accomplished.
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?
