RECIPE: Sugar Snap Kids: Paleo Pumpkin Muffins
Need a back to school breakfast that's quick, healthy and easy to grab on the go? These paleo pumpkin mini muffins taste like little bites of fall- they're sweet but not too sweet and the perfect size for kids. Whip up a batch and freeze them in packs of three for an easy breakfast that everyone in the family can enjoy!
The amazing thing is each MINI muffin packs an incredible 6.3 grams of fiber and only 0.8 grams of sugar! (compare that to 14 grams of sugar in a Chobani yogurt). They're gluten free, grain free, dairy free and absolutely delicious!
