by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Are you looking for a yummy pick-me-up to get through those long mornings? Look no further because these energy muffins are the perfect snack to get you moving!

These Energy Muffins are a great solution if you’re looking for a way to give your kids (and yourself!) an energy boost. Packed with healthy and delicious ingredients like carrots, apples and walnuts, they make the perfect after school snack or breakfast that won’t leave anyone feeling sluggish. Not only are they easy to make, but they will also satisfy both your taste buds and your nutritional needs. Thank you to my friend Samantha for this recipe.  

This is a great recipe for bulk baking, to fill up the freezer for those days you want a quick snack. This batch makes 24 regular size muffins, or 12 regular size + 24 mini muffins. 


Packed with the goodness of carrots, apples and walnuts, they offer a unique combination of flavours.
