Apple Cinnamon Flax Mini Muffins

Cooking is a big passion of mine. I love to take ingredients from scratch and turn them into something delicious. Cooking gives you the freedom to combine any foods and spices and turn them into your own masterpiece. When it comes to baking however, I always hit a road block. Baking is more difficult for me because I feel like it restricts you to having to follow every recipe step by step. If you change one small thing you are risking messing the whole thing up.

Baking with clean ingredients gives you some of that same freedom cooking gives you. At least this is what I have found from personal experience. Clean ingredients are much more versatile and easier to work with. Another great reason to eat healthy foods.

These Apple Cinnamon Flax Mini Muffins are super clean. They are a great source of fiber and are made with fresh apples. These mini muffins are super moist and fluffy and make the perfect snack for your little ones. They are also great to be given to your baby as finger food to promote self feeding. It gets even better though,  you can also have them for breakfast. They are gluten-free and dairy-free for those who have allergies.

Add these into your baking activities with your kids. They will love baking them with you and eating them after. Promoting healthy eating habits from an early age is very beneficial for our kids. They will grow to make much healthier food choices.

    1. Aww congratulations!! Yes they’re perfectly fine to freeze. Just thaw out and reheat in oven for about 5 minutes and 350 degrees.
