I had a request to create this recipe! I love requests. It keeps things fresh in the kitchen.

This recipe is really easy to make and is honestly delicious. It is also extremely filling and satisfying.

This recipe is great to pack for on-the-go nutrition. Feel free to add in the nuts or leave them out which ever your preference. My husband took these muffins and turned them into a treat by drizzling some honey over the top. They were so good!

This recipe is loaded with great nutrients and is wonderful for the entire family.
