I'm not exactly a morning person. That's why I always try to freeze some breakfast or snack options that I can take out in the morning and send to school with my kids without having to cook on the spot. One of my favorite recipes is this muffin one; it's a great way to incorporate fruits or veggies, whole-grain flour and just a dash of sugar in one treat. I prefer to make these from scratch. Try this recipe out for yourself; you'll be surprised just how easy it is to follow, and how well the muffins thaw out as a great snack alternative. MORE + LESS -
