It's true....my love for muffins is REAL. To be honest, I usually always have some fresh ones on hand! I will whip up a batch on Sunday & have them readily available for quick breakfasts or snacks throughout the week.
Let's be honest though, sometimes muffins get a bad rap for being unhealthy & loaded with some not so great ingredients. That's why I make my own! I get to control the sugars & add ins to allow for healthy muffins that are still SUPER tasty.
These muffins are a meal in themselves & packed full of so many yummy goodies. If you've ever had the morning glory muffins from Tall Grass, these are super similar! Thanks to Ashley from Baker By Nature for this recipe. I made a few tweaks for what I had on hand but you can find her original recipe here.
Enjoy these delicious & moist muffins! Yum!
