Monday Muffins: Healthy Company Muffins

 

It’s Monday and time to share another delicious muffin recipe. January is the perfect time of year to make these delicious Healthy Company Muffins. We have a lot of company that likes to visit and play in the snow during the winter months. Nothing better than having a healthy, delicious muffin to offer in the morning. This recipe comes from my favorite book, Simply in Season. I love this book for the simple recipes it contains and the fact that they are geared to helping you eat in season. These muffins are perfect for breakfast or for a good snack. They can be cooked in a regular muffin tin or a mini muffin tin, which works well if you are using them for a snack.

These look so healthy and yummy. My gang are not big fans of raisins. Do you think you substitute dried cranberries instead? – Amy

Amy,
By all means leave out the raisins, dried cranberries would also be good or just cook as is without the raisins!
