I have made a batch of these muffins about once or twice a week for the last month. They are such a simple and nutritious snack for my on-the-go toddler and for myself as a ravenous nursing mom. But I especially love them as an easy addition to breakfast. I’m all about simplifying breakfast lately, since I’m so sleep deprived with a newborn! “Muffin” just may be Julian’s new favorite word as of late. Hooray for healthy toddler snacks! This recipe is super simple, but really packs a punch when it comes to a nutritious treat. I adapted the recipe from a Martha Stewart segment in her latest magazine. I can’t find it anywhere online yet! I substituted a lot of the ingredients that didn’t suit my taste, or that required an extra trip to the store. I’m talking to you spelt flour. Who has time for another store run anyway?! I know you’ll love this recipe as much as my family does right now. I’m soaking in the last blueberry days before it’s pumpkin spice everything. If this recipe inspires you to bake some tasty muffins of your own, be sure to tag me on Instagram (heidi.stephens) or on Facebook (Bainbridge Boheme) so I can see your beautiful creations!
