I keep muffins on hand in our home as a quick and healthy afternoon snack for my little ones who love baked goods. I’ve worked on this recipe so that it brings in fiber, protein, and antioxidants. The grains fill you up, and the protein gives you that staying power to make it through the next workout, nursing session, or afternoon playdate.

The muffins are amazing right out of the oven and freeze well in case you like to batch cook. And thanks to all the substance in the batter, these muffins travel very well to family reunions and brunches. Enjoy!
