Carrot Quinoa Power Muffins are a great meal prep item that will taste good and help you stay on track.
When you are watching your waist line, baked goods are usually off the list. It’s not that muffins, pancakes and cookies aren’t healthy, but usually what they are made of is process, enriched and loaded with white sugar.
These are one of my favorite muffins of all time! They are filled with whole grains, superfoods, and even some vegetables. I love to make these as part of my meal prep and then freeze. Usually I pop them in the microwave for about 20 seconds or allow them to thaw on the counter for a few minutes.
