Ok, so you can’t feed your kids cupcakes every day. But, what’s the difference between a cupcake and a muffin? As far as I’m concerned, sugar and frosting. As far as my kids are concerned- not a whole lot! And how about adding some good ingredients like whole wheat flour, honey, carrots and applesauce? Yes, I did sneak carrots in there.
When my oldest daughter Gracie started eating solid foods I started to panic- what would I feed her? How would I make it? Turns out she LOVES muffins, always has, devours them in fact. I wanted to find a muffin recipe that would be somewhat healthy and that she would think is a treat.
Both of my kids love these muffins so much. The carrots are barely detected which is an added bonus. These muffins are so delicious and I find they can be eaten with breakfast, lunch or even dinner! (They can even be frozen to save for another time!) Get the kids involved- kids of all ages can shred the carrots, add the ingredients, stir, etc. If you really want to, you can even add frosting- shhhh! Bon appetite!
