Green Berry Muffins #healthysnack #tararochfordnutrition

As a mom of a toddler and a mom who is breastfeeding, I am constantly on the hunt for nutritious snacks that are satisfying and delicious. I love muffins because you can make a batch to store in the freezer and they can be served as a zero prep snack (aside from a little thawing) on multiple occasions!

These Berry Green Muffins fit all of my requirements for a snack. They contain a fruit AND a vegetable, healthy fats from almond flour, whole grains from oats, a little protein from the almond flour and the eggs, and they are absolutely delicious.

Ingredients in Green Berry Muffins

Unsweetened applesauce: Apples add natural sweetness, a touch of fiber, as well as some vitamin C and potassium.

Maple syrup: A little maple syrup goes a long way in these Green Berry Muffins, making them taste just sweet enough.

Eggs: Eggs help bind the muffins together, but they also contain important nutrients like choline, vitamin D, protein, and antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin.

Avocado oil: Avocado oil is a neutral cooking oil that is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E, which is an antioxidant.

Banana: Bananas make these muffins naturally sweet as well. Bananas contain potassium and magnesium, which are important minerals for the body.

Vanilla extract: Vanilla adds creaminess, warmth and sweetness without added sugar to these muffins.

Almond flour: Almond flour is naturally gluten free and is a good source of omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium, plant protein and vitamin E.

Rolled oats: Oats or oatmeal are whole grains. Oatmeal contains beta-glucan, a fiber that may be linked with a reduced cholesterol level. Just 1 cup of oats contains 11 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber, as well as a good amount of iron!

Baking soda and baking powder: These are leavening agents that help the muffins rise and look like muffins.

Kale: Kale is an extremely nutrient-dense leafy green that is high in vitamins A, C, K and so many other nutrients.

Frozen berries: Frozen berries are more affordable than fresh berries, always in season, and take longer to go bad. They are also filled with antioxidants and add tart and sweet bursts of color throughout the muffins.
