Healthy Banana Carrot Muffins

These muffins are not only delicious, but they make a great healthy snack or breakfast when you are on the go. And a healthy option for your family too.

One of the great things about muffins is their dual purpose. They make great snacks, but they can also serve as a quick breakfast when you are on the run.

Part of living a life in Christ is taking care not only of your soul, but also your body. So having healthy snacks that you can enjoy for yourself or your family is always a good things to have in your recipe box and your weekly menu.

These muffins were originally posted on my gluten free blog, but they can be adapted for regular flour as well. I’ve made them countless times both ways and it’s always a hit!

Enjoy the recipe!
