I’ve got a great recipe to share with you today. I love making muffins. I prefer them over cookies because when it comes to cookies, who can stop at just one?! But a muffin is usually filling enough for a snack. Pair it with some Greek yogurt for protein, and you will be full for at least a couple of hours. Plus, they are the perfect snack when you are on the go and need to feed yourself and your little munchkins.
And because I’m The Fit Housewife, you just know these are made with ONLY healthy ingredients!
Do me a favor and never buy muffins at the store again, m’kay? They are loaded with sugar (most likely high-fructose corn syrup), unhealthy fat, and sodium to keep their shelf life. Trust me, these are easy to make and they freeze well. So make a double batch and stick some in the freezer, that way you’ll always have some when in need.
I bring these to the kids soccer games so they have something healthy to snack on. Because you know that snacks are the only reason my kids play soccer, right?! I’m not joking. So I may as well bring something healthy.
Here’s a handy tip: If you want to have freshly baked muffins first thing in the morning, mix the wet and dry ingredients seperately the night before. Cover the dry ingredients and keep them at room temperature overnight. Cover the wet ingredients and place them in the fridge overnight. Before hopping in the shower in the morning, preheat your oven, spray a muffin tin with olive oil, combine the wet and dry ingredients, fill the muffin cups, and pop them in the oven. The muffins will bake while you shower!
