Mini muffins. What’s not to love about them? Especially these, which are bite-sized, healthy, veggie packed, no refined sugar muffins of goodness. They are the perfect lunchbox or on the go snack and work for kids of all ages.
That said, If your kids are picky about seeing the veggies, I would great them. Matilda is not old enough to be picky yet, so I can shred these. Amelia is hit or miss regardless….
