So as you can imagine, it’s been a bit crazy! However, now I am back and more excited than ever to share what I’ve been up to, more healthy recipes, and how to stay fit when it seems impossible.

My sister, Robin, introduced me to this recipe and I’m so glad she did! ¬†She made them for our family trip to Massachusetts and it was a huge hit, especially with our cousins (ages 5 and 7?..I think!!!) Anyway, the name “Magic Muffins” was coined.

Best part about these muffins, other than the fact that they are super dooperly healthy…they are soooooo easy to make. ¬†Honestly.
