Maple Yogurt Almond Muffins

The ultimate muffin light wholesome with hidden fruits, veggies and whole grains. They are easy to make and if you don’t have all ingredients listed you can still make these! For example add chocolate chips instead of shredded carrots or more apple sauce if you don’t have banana. This is  a standard muffin recipe so get creative! You can leave out topping if short on time. The almond flour really gives these a mellow flavor and adds some much-needed protein to the remainder of ingredientsimage. Made with almond flour, banana, oats, raw yogurt, applesauce and shredded carrots you wouldn’t think these would taste so good. My kids ate two each and are very picky eaters! I freeze remaining and warm up on school days or use as an easy wholesome travel snack.
