Healthy Morning Flax Muffins


Healthy Morning Flax Muffins      

 As you can imagine, I'm a little selective about the food I give my kids. So, coming up with food that is both nutritious and kid friendly is always my goal. These muffins are just that! My 14 month old literally could not stop with these! I was SO pleased:) 

These muffins are moist and just sweet enough. For pickier kids, I would suggest pureeing the carrots and apples so they wont know whats inside.
