Super Muffins

By now most people know that a lot of muffins you buy are just cupcakes in disguise. That’s why I prefer to make my own healthy muffins, and save the cake for dessert!

Here’s a recipe for a super healthy muffin. They have no added sugar or oil. These make a perfect breakfast paired with fruit, peanut butter, or yogurt!
