“I am a preschool teacher and really appreciate the great snacks that my families bring in for class. These muffins were truly loved by my class so I asked for the recipe because I could tell they were full of yummy veggies and fruits. The original recipe was posted on Fredericksburg Macaroni Kid. I added some additional dried fruits, ground flax, and took out some sugar to make them a bit more healthy, but the flavor is still amazing!”-Wendy Cannon, a cooking instructor at the Doctor Yum project kitchen

In another bowl, whisk together eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Pour into bowl with dry ingredients and mix well.

Babyfood Option:

Muffins are a great finger food for babies because you can pack so many flavors and nutrients into one bite.. Cut into small pieces or consider making into mini-muffins to make them even more fun.
