I’m super excited about these new Saturday Market Muffins! I decided to call them Saturday Market Muffins because they contain various healthy ingredients. Your teeth will sink into a tender but sturdy muffin bursting with flavor.
These dense, hearty muffins keep your tummy full longer without added fat.
Look at all the yummy carrots, apples, nuts, and raisins in these muffins!! You can’t see it, but there’s lots of fiber from the oat bran and flaxseed.
Breakfast or snack? I’m thinking maybe both!
