Carrot Apple Muffins

My family cannot get enough of these tasty muffins. A perfect snack or breakfast- these high fiber muffins are simple to make in a blender or a food processor and chalk full of nutrients. A smear of almond or peanut butter make these especially satisfying. This recipe makes a dozen muffins but I always double. They keep well in the refrigerator for several days tasting just as delicious as the day they were made - not every muffin is so lucky!
