CARROT MUFFINS

These tasty muffins are filled with carrots, banana and whole grains, to power up those school mornings or snack times. They are high in fiber, helping to keep you (and/or your student(s)) full for longer. Adding some natural jam or light spread on top makes these a favorite in my house.
