Wholesome Muffins...3 Ways




Guys, I am going to be honest with you...I have more muffin recipes than anyone probably should. 

There is just something about them. You can eat them any time of day. And with the right ingredients, they can be pretty nutritious. 

Once I discovered the existence of whole wheat pastry flour I couldn't help myself from creating and converting recipes. You can purchase this at health food stores...or order online. Bob's Redmill makes my favorite Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour.

My favorite thing to do is make several batches on a Sunday afternoon, and store them in my freezer. Like almost immediately. This locks in their moisture




They are perfect tucked into my kids' lunches.






Because I have a sick kiddo right now...and you are all really just here for the recipes...I am not going to drag this out...
