Super Hero Muffins

If Spiderman, Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Plasticman and Wonder Woman got together and made muffins, this is just the way they'd do it. This muffin is a powerhouse! It's guaranteed to give you super human strength, help you see through walls, breathe underwater, fly, make webs shoot out of your hands, climb skyscrapers and stretch your body into any shape!

It's jam packed with whole grains, peanut butter, honey, flax, fruit, nuts and seeds.

While these muffins may not really give you super powers, they will get you revved up and ready for whatever your day might throw at you. This muffin and a cup of green tea (or a nice cappuccino) is the perfect combination of morning goodness!

What a coincidence. I had some banana muffins this morning with my mochaccino. But yours is powerpacked! A muffin like that will keep me going for the rest of the day. And oh, I love your tabletop by the way...

Oh my, Kim, you have some real nice goodies hidden in these muffins. One would go great with my coffee this morning. I have not mentioned it, but I am so impressed that you always use whole wheat flour in your baking. That is one move I have not made yet, but you have inspired me.

Just wanted to thank you so much for your thoughtful caring comment concerning my daughter's migraines...I so agree food allergies could so be part of it...we have some Dr. appointments coming up so will look into all the options....what a blessing you are my caring friend.

Hugs for a wonderful Friday. xoxo

You really need to have an order form at the bottom of posts like this. You've marketed these muffins so well I'd totally sign up for a box!

I soooo needed one of these this morning! Rough day. I'll have to make these soon for days like this when I need a boost. They look and sound delicious. Love your muffin recipes!

Those sound awesome. People used to tell me I looked like wonder woman, and I had a silver bracelet that kinda looked like the one she wore.....

Suzi said...

If I could be a super hero I would be Wonder Woman. My kids already think I can do most anything so why not have the uniform to fit the persona. Thanks for sharing Kim! As always they look wonderful.
