We live in a house with no air conditioning which is totally fine 97% of the year. For the small percentage of days that equate to a heat wave in SF, I put a strict “no oven use” rule in place. Now that the cooler temps are officially here, the oven is back on and I’m in the mood to bake! I love making muffins because a) they are super easy to whip up and b) I love having them around for breakfasts and snacks!
Over my years in this space I’ve come to learn that “healthy” is such a subjective term. This is of course how we define healthy. You may define it differently, but either way we’ve got options for ya and we’re rounding up the best healthy muffin recipes on the web!
