Story

I had this vision of spirilized veggies, ribbons of colour, in a muffin form – something transportable and snack sized. A quick Pinterest and Google search came up empty with a number of the ‘toddler’ or ‘veggie’ muffin recipes containing a 1/2 cup to 1 cup of sugar! Really?! So here is my version. No nasties and it’s so tasty I had to hide them from my husband. They were gone in a flash, ah before I could flash the camera!

To note: depending on how much cheese you use, they can be a little messy. But the goodness in them, watching your toddler gobble down all those veggies and proteins is worth it!
