Paleo Healthy Carrot & Apple Muffins

If you’re kids are like my girls, they love to eat anything in a muffin shape! I could make them any color and put anything inside them, and as long as they are in the shape of a muffin, they would eat them up!

From a very early age, Amelia ate muffins. She went through a period of only wanting banana muffins but now that Matilda is on muffins, Amelia’s back on eating them too. It’s a great way to get additional fruits, vegetables and protein in without any of the additional processed flours or sugars.

Try these out in a lunchbox or a snack after school (or even for BLW) and let me know what you think!
