Frosted Rainbow Carrot Muffins It always feels like a win when my kids think they’re getting dessert for breakfast, and I’m just silently laughing that they’re eating (and enjoying) carrots for their meal. It’s payback for all the grey hairs they put on this head. 😝

Banana Spinach MuffinsWe’re continuing our GREEN week and made these blender muffins in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. These chocolate chip banana muffins are always a hit with the kids and their friends (and no one even complains that the beautiful green color comes from SPINACH!!). We love using spinach because it adds such great nutritional value without compromising the sweet flavor of the muffin. Spinach is a such great source of fiber that helps fuel growth of healthy gut bacteria.Sufganiyot MuffinsWith Chanukah finally here, we baked these “healthified” sufganiyot muffins.

Fun fact: although my kids are obsessed with peanut butter, they HATE jelly. A great mom hack to get around that is to mash up raspberries in its place, and the combo is just as delicious! These muffins can be made with or without egg to accommodate our vegan friends (the middle may sink a bit but still as delicious!), and are dairy free + gluten free as well. To our friends with nut allergies, sunflower seed butter can also be used (just be aware that when sunflower seed butter is baked, it may turn green when it reacts with the baking soda!)
