Holiday Grab

Who has time for a sit down breakfast or lunch these days as we get close to Christmas?!? Not me, I feel like I run from my workout, to kid drop offs, to work events, to kid activities and then to holiday parties. Yikes! So, that is why I love to have yummy, somewhat healthy things to grab and eat on the run. Love these muffins and they are filling too. Got this recipe from Cookie and Kate but also getting the cookbook Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.


Apple & Carrot “Superhero”

Cookie and Kate
Info and recipe from 

The authors call these muffins “superhero” muffins because they are muffins that sustain. They offered three versions in the book, and I chose the muffins featuring grated fresh carrots and Granny Smith apples.

These muffins are very hearty and wholesome, which makes them perfect grab-and-go breakfasts or snacks. I think they would freeze well for several months, if you want to keep them on hand for hangry moments.

Bonus? These muffins are gluten free and naturally sweetened, and easy to mix up by hand. Apple carrot muffins for the win
