Indulge in veggie-rich muffins!

I am always looking for creative and sneaky ways to get my family to eat more veggies. My 20-month old toddler is as picky as they come and has decided that he is taking a stand against any and all foods deemed as “healthy”. This of course includes any kind of vegetable.

But I can’t blame him for this. You see, even though I try to eat as healthy as I can 98% of the time, I can wholeheartedly say that I absolutely dislike vegetables myself. Shocked? I know many people are especially considering my stance on healthy living.  Give me a chance to redeem myself though. You see, even though I dislike most veggies with the exception of a few “night shade” varieties, I still try my best to incorporate them into my diet.

I have found that the easiest way to do this is to mask their flavor using other ingredients–this is why salad dressings are my best friend. Needless to say, when I found these Garden Lites Chocolate Muffins which are made with fresh zucchini & carrots, I was stoked to say the least. As a busy working Mom who’s also in the process of building a small start-up on the side, I am absolutely SPENT most of the time. I want to create healthy recipes but am just short on time.

These muffins are gluten free, dairy free, and have 120 calories, 3 grams of fiber, and 5 grams of whole grain per serving. That wasn’t what got me excited however. You see, they apparently taste pretty good too…especially warmed up.

Where to find them

I picked up this box from my local Costco located in the frozen food section and at less than 64 cents per muffin, I’d say It’s a pretty sweet deal. But from what I’m hearing, you can also pick them up at your local Publix, Stop & Shop, Giant, Shop-Rite, HEB, and Kroger.

I love that they come individually wrapped and I can just grab and go. I take a couple of these with me to work straight out of the freezer and let them defrost on their own but I think they taste better slightly warmed in the microwave or toaster oven.
