I am not sure if it’s what they teach them at school or what. But the truth is that every time I give my oldest son (Andrés Ignacio, now he’s 13 and is taller than me) something to eat, he invariably ends up asking me if what he ate is "healthy".
So whenever I can, I bake “healthy” things like these muffins with chopped apples, shredded carrots and coconut, raisins and made with gluten free flour. They can also be made with wheat flour in which case I recommend unbleached flour.
What I like is that you can eat them at breakfast, as a snack or even for dessert (although as you may know I do prefer a crème brûlée or chocolate mousse).
Best of all, even though it seems like a large list of ingredients, they are so super easy to make.
Happy muffin baking!
