Grab and Go Apple Muffins

Committing to clean eating involves being prepared in advance so that you do not suddenly get hungry and buckle at the mercy of Tim Horton’s first thing in the morning.

Grab and Go MuffinsGetting up early to prepare meals and snacks for the day is one option, but another option is to spend an hour on the weekend to prep some meals so that eating for the rest of the week is a breeze!

Our Grab and Go Apple Muffins make a perfect mid-afternoon snack or a quick breakfast.

They are packed with fiber, protein and nutrients.

Feel free to change the fruit to pears or berries as the seasons change.
