Spiced Carrot Protein Muffins

When I notice they are missing the essential nutrients from vegetables I have to get a little tricky with our cooking.  Which isn’t too hard because there are so many great ways to sneak in veggies.

  1. These look so good Giselle! And I’m so glad I’m not the only one who has to sneak veggies for the HUBBY too! 😉
