It seems I may be on a muffin kick. 

But I’m totally ok with that, because I can make them super healthy, tasty, and kid approved! Win-win-WIN!

My blue-eyed, reliable taste tester…

When I stumbled upon the idea of making green muffins, I was almost giddy. My kids (as are most kids, ammiright?) are usually turned off by the green color of food. It’s like they were born with this innate aversion to anything green…or healthy. But over the years, I’ve either learned to hide the green, or present it in a fun and (hopefully) kid-friendly way. 

So you can imagine my excitement when I came upon this recipe from Super Healthy Kids. I literally didn’t have to substitute any of the ingredients in order to fit our eating habits. But since I was adding in chocolate chips, I decided to remove the cinnamon. As I was mixing up the batter, the Nugget came over to watch. He asked what I was making. 

I went with Monster Muffins. 

The Nugget preferred “Crazy Cupcakes”. Honestly, the man ultimately just loves cake…and he doesn’t realize that muffins are technically cupcakes, just without the icing. Either way, I was not planning on arguing with a 3 year old about that.

But it’s my blog, and I’ll name ’em what I want to. 😉 Plus,  Mountain Man, Little Miss T, and J-Man love “Monster Muffins”. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

Plus, they were the perfect color for St. Patrick’s Day, so there’s that.
