Welcome back to MOTW (Muffin of the Week!)

Every week of February I am posting a new muffin recipe that I have made in an attempt to get my 18 month old to eat more variety.

We’re using feel good ingredients like whole wheat flour and greek yogurt (added protein!)

These muffins are naturally sweetened thanks to the sweetness of the apples and the addition of pure maple syrup.

I love using maple syrup when baking for a healthier sweetener.

I used nutmeg and cinnamon for spices, as they pair so well with the taste of apple.

Crosby hasn’t tried these yet (he is still napping), but I can’t wait to see if he will eat one when he wakes up!

Moms of toddlers know how frustrating it is to try to get your kid to eat anything of nutritional value and the struggle is definitely real in our house.

Crosby is just terribly picky, but we have good luck with things like healthy muffins and he LOVES green smoothies.

These muffins have a healthy dose of both fruits and veggies thanks to our grated carrots and apples.

Robbie tried one and he liked it so hopefully Crosby thinks the same (he wants to be just like his daddy.)

These aren’t your traditional muffins, and the insides taste almost like apple pie filling.

Soft muffins might just be my new favorite thing!

  • 1 cup plain 0% greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup grated carrots (peel first)
  • 3/4 cup grated apple
