Introduction: Mmm"egg"a Muffins
These tasty little "muffins" are great snacks for little or big hands.
Full of colour, with bright added veggies, these can be made ahead and you have a
nutritional snack anytime of the day.
They are great at room temperature or hot from the oven.
I love leaving these on the table so my kids can just take them and go and I know they are eating something extremely healthy.
These transport well and can be made ahead frozen and reheated.
Easy to make and fun to eat.
