Whole Wheat Apple Veggie Muffins


A few weeks ago, I posted a recipe for Blueberry-Banana-Zucchini muffins. This recipe is a variation of that one, but I've used fresh apples and shredded yellow squash instead of zucchini and blueberries.

I've said it a million times, and I'll say it a million more--muffins are so versatile and, given the right ingredients, they don't have to be bad for you. These muffins combine whole grains, fruits, and vegetables and have no refined sugar or butter.

They're great for breakfast, a light lunch, or snack, and they freeze well and reheat beautifully in the microwave or oven.

Happy baking!
