Vegan Apple Carrot Muffins

Rating: 4.51 stars
Vegan egg substitute is a powder that you add water to, and can be bought at most grocery stores. It is fat free, vegan and has few calories per 'egg'. If you can't find it, use 6 eggs, but remember that the fat content will go way up.

I run a day care and was looking for a good snack too feed the kids with little sugar but still big on taste. I came up with these. I have made a batch of these for the last three days now and can't keep them around. Even the parents have been asking for the recipe. Frost with the Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting recipe.

Hearty Breakfast Muffins

Rating: 4.69 stars

Healthy, hearty breakfast muffins. These have a lightly sweet flavor and lots of wholesome ingredients to get your day started. Moist, chewy, and not overly dense. Easily customizable! You can use any flavor of yogurt, but I prefer plain Greek yogurt. Customize with your favorite nuts or seeds, zucchini or squash, cooked sweet potato, raisins or cranberries, etc. Enjoy!
