Healthy and Delicious Muffin Recipes

If you follow my recipes blog, you know that I am a health freak. We are also a vegetarian family so I try to seek out the recipes that are not only delicious but healthy and nutritious for kids and adults.

Recently, I tried Spinach Muffins and Quinoa Honey Cake. Not only us adults, but our three year old loves them. Needless to say, he is asking for “more”, just as he is about to eat up his last bite.

For that reason, I have put together collection of healthy muffin recipes for kids and adults that are not only healthy but also delicious. I have tried baking some of these myself, and they are deeleecious!!!
