Healthy Pumpkin Muffins

I was totally impressed by these muffins and their sneaky healthiness.  And the kids loved them…Mom Win!  Usually pumpkin muffins are pack with sugar and have a base of white flour, these muffins much different.  I am always looking for ways to get veggies into the kiddos since they oppose them at all costs. 

Pumpkin muffins are a great way to trick them into some healthy nutrition.  And here’s why.  Pumpkin is pack with nutrients such as Vitamin E, A, & C, Iron, Magnesium, Folate, Fiber and the list goes on.  Its good for your skin and give your immune system a boost.  Pumpkin is fabulous and it tastes pretty good too!  This makes it easy to sneak by those kiddie taste buds.  Mom 1 Kids 0
