Personal Notes:
These muffins were designed for superheroes like you. They're packed full of veggies and sweetened with maple syrup instead of refined sugar. In addition, almond meal and whole grain oats replace nutrient-stripped white flour. These are go to muffins- nourishing and sweetly satisfying for an easy grab-'n go breakfast.

And don't fear the butter. Fueling up with healthy fats is a great way to start your day. Fat helps transport important vitamins throughout your hardworking body and will help keep you satisfied longer.

As a bonus, these muffins are gluten-free.
