Tips
  • Snack vs. Treat - Snacks contain at 2-3 food groups and are not high in added sugar, fat and salt additives.

  • Muffins can be frozen for future use!

  • If you substitute with coconut flour, wring out less water from the carrots and zucchini. This is because coconut flour is more absorbent!
