i made these morning glory muffins for my daughter’s 2 1/2 year birthday. yes, we do celebrate 1/2 birthdays. everyone should.
i made a few tweaks to the recipe to make it a bit healthier…
1. instead of 1 c sugar, i used 1/2 c honey
2. instead of 1/2 c oil, i used 1/2 c applesauce (in addition to the 3/4 c applesauce)
3. instead of 1 c zucchini, i used 2 c carrots
4. i omitted the apple
5. instead of canned pineapple, i pureed fresh pineapple
these muffins were extremely moist and very interesting texture-wise. crunchy, chewy, soft…it was all going on and i liked it. my tot loved ‘em and so did my mom friends. (and of course they loved knowing they were healthy muffins!) another thing i love about having muffins around is they are a quick, grab-n-go breakfast or anytime snack!
what’s great about this recipe is you really can add whatever fruits/veggies you want. it’s FUN to experiment. now go make someone happy by whipping these muffins up for a 1/2 birthday!***
