Applesauce Pumpkin Muffins
"These APPLESAUCE PUMPKIN MUFFINS are full of nutritious, organic ingredients for a perfect prep-ahead breakfast, an easy addition to lunch boxes, or a delicious fall snack! My goal in sharing these pumpkin muffins (and other easy lunch ideas) is to offer moms like me a manageable solution to the daily chore of packing meals and feeding our kids. I feel strongly about offering my boys nutritious options that fuel their growing bodies, but I also know that the food better taste good! Of course, these pumpkin muffins are also a great grab-and-go snack option! In less than 20 minutes I can pull a warm batch of mini muffins out of the oven and stash them in my freezer for easy breakfasts, snacks, or lunch box treats. The muffins turn out moist, tender, and full of fall flavor. In my mind, they are an ideal solution when the kids want a sweet treat, but I want them to have something more satisfying than a packaged dessert! Perhaps best of all, these pumpkin muffins can be prepared in advance and tossed into your kids’ backpacks as they run out the door. Just like my other easy lunch ideas, they are simple, realistic options for parents’ with busy schedules (isn’t that all of us)?!"
