Nutritional Value

This muffin recipe was developed for my toddler. My aim was to create a healthy muffin, that unlike often 'empty muffins', contained some substance- hence the use of tofu for added protein. The muffins are cane sugar free and use apple juice concentrate and the natural sweetness of fruit. Adults love these too- bake in larger muffin tins for adults and cook for an extra 5 minutes.
