She Works Hard for the Money Power Muffins

During a busy teaching day, I like to stay fueled with these power muffins--they're tasty, easy to make, and so packed with vitamins and nutrients that they can hold me for a long time.  This is especially important for the days I'm teaching back-to-back classes and don't get to my lunch until later in the afternoon.  If you, too, find you need a healthy snack between meals, whip up a batch of these She Works Hard for the Money Power Muffins!


3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

2 tablespoons almond meal

2 tablespoons flaxseed meal

3 tablespoons chia seeds

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon ginger

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup vegetable oil or coconut oil

1/3 cup coconut milk

2 eggs

1 shredded granny smith apple

2 shredded carrots


Preheat oven to 350F degrees. 

Oil muffin tins.  Combine all dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients.  Slowly combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients.  Fill greased muffin tins about two-thirds full with batter.  Bake until lightly browned, about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.  Let cool for 15 minutes.  Enjoy!
