Apple Banana Muffins – 21 Day Fix Approved

Apple Banana Muffins – 21 Day Fix Approved

If your kids are picky eaters this recipe is a great way to trick them (or yourself) into eating something healthier when you wake up.  These super “healthified” muffins are awesome because they’re delicious and taste just like a regular old not-so-good-for-you muffin.

RECIPE NOTES:
• If you’d like a little more fiber and some omega-3 fatty acids,
replace ½ cup of your almond flour with ½ cup of ground flaxseed.
• You can make your own almond flour by processing 1 cup slivered
almonds in food processor (or blender with a strong motor). Make
sure that you pulse in 20-second intervals to prevent the almonds
from turning into almond butter. 1 cup of slivered almonds yields
approximately 1 cup of almond flour.
