Morning glory muffins

March 2, 2017

I am sure you know by now creating low point muffins and loaves is one of my favorite things to do.. I love to bake and I love to experiment and see what combinations I can come up with while keeping the smart point value nice and low.. We all enjoy a fresh baked muffin in the morning or perhaps afternoon with a cup of tea.. These morning glory muffins are bursting with flavor, the apple & carrot combination was amazing, my husband could not get enough of these (lucky for him he is not counting points and ate about 5 one after the other!) you need to make these, you will love them! Makes 12 full size muffins for 3 smart points each and just 98 calories..
