I often have those mornings where I wake up with a hankering for a sweet, but healthy, breakfast treat to accompany my green smoothie! I love sneaking things like carrots and summer squash into sweet muffins! It’s a great way to add an extra serving of veggies to your diet!
There have been plenty of carrots at the farmers’ market and in CSA shares this summer, so I was inspired to create these Vegan Carrot-Apple Muffins to satisfy the morning sweet tooth!These moist & delicious muffins make the perfect breakfast treat, or sweet snack with afternoon tea!
