Recipe

I am always on the search for healthy muffin recipes since the average coffee shop muffin has close to 500 calories.  So when I saw these in the latest issue of Heatlh magazine, I couldn't wait to try them.  Carrots, apples, flaxseeds, walnuts, and a touch of cinnamon come together for the perfect fall muffin.  It's also hearty and packed with fiber, which makes it perfect for a satisfying breakfast or snack that will keep you full.
