One of my favorite food prep items is muffins! They’re perfect as part of a quick breakfast, a mid-morning snack with some coffee or as an afternoon pick me up between lunch and dinner.

I created these for the sample meal plan with my Healthy Mama Meal Planner and I can’t get over how simple and delicious they are. 

They’re naturally gluten-free, made with almond flour, and they’re packed with poppyseeds for an extra dash of nutrients (and flavor).

Benefits of poppyseeds: 
1. High in fiber (2g for 1 tbsp) 

2. High in iron — blood and brain booster

3. High in zinc-  beneficial for immune and bone health 

4. High in magnesium- a co-factor in over 300 mechanisms in the body

Bonus: the kids love them! 

 

Make them:
