My 9 year old son has a passion for cooking. He has always liked it. By the age of 7, he was able to get up and make himself an omelet and toast. This isn't a new thing for him, but he recently discovered baking and that shifted his passion into a whole new gear. He has taken it on as his personal mission to make sure we never run out of muffins. His muffins are really good, and with a regular stream of kids through out house, we run out often. Last week, I think he made close to 100 muffins. Given how many muffins we were going through, I asked Owen if he could see any way of making them a bit healthier. He began to play with a recipe out of his favorite cooking book (United Tastes of America). After a few batches, he landed on a NEW recipe that is a muffin I even love to eat. I am so proud of him for sticking out the recipe making process and really excited to share it with you. They are delicious and can be made as a vegan and gluten-free muffin. It goes without saying that these are definitely kid-approved! Enjoy!
