Many moms’ of young kids are concerned about feeding raw carrots to their little ones. The great news is if you shred the carrots up and put them inside of carrot muffins, your little sweeties can enjoy all the health benefits of carrots, in addition to the great taste of terrific, tasting carrot muffins.

DID YOU KNOW? No other vegetable or fruit contains as much beta carotene as carrots. Beta carotene is very important for children as their little bodies convert beta carotene into vitamin “A.” This is important because vitamin A helps support healthy growth and development of children,  tissue and bone repair, healthy eyes, a strong immune system, and healthy, vibrant skin.

There is NOTHING better than a chocolate  muffin. Frankly, I wasn’t sure if I could  create a chocolate chip muffin recipe that was totally divine using all healthy ingredients. The great news I did it. I now know that it is possible to bake living healthy chocolate muffins that are also healthy for kids.

This double chocolate muffin has only 309 calories if you make it as shown, or only 201 calories per chocolate muffin if you take out the chocolate chips. (It is delicious either way!)

Healthy Banana Muffins with Peaches and Strawberries

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Healthy Banana Muffins with Peaches and Strawberries

My healthy banana muffin recipe with peaches and strawberries is simply delicious and is best served cold.

I came up with this banana muffin recipe because I had a huge bag of Costco fruit that I used for smoothies. I accidently defrosted two bags of fruit after making a smoothie, so I went to work on creating a tasty muffin so I could use up the fruit. I wasn’t sure how the muffins would turn out, but my kids loved the banana muffin with peaches and strawberries; as they were very light and refreshing.

When you bite into the banana muffin you will love tasting the little bites of strawberries and peaches; with just a hint of banana. It tastes so good! Read More→
