When I think about creating a new recipe, I always try to include something my family may not be fond of. Then I work my tail off to hide the secret somehow, with other flavors and ingredients that would take the stage and be the star.

The star in this recipe is the sweet apple! It’s combined with some carrot and quinoa, which are both ingredients my children would rather not indulge in.  When they’ve no idea they are munching on muffins with quinoa and carrots and asked for another, that is what I thrive on and what drives me to continue to make secretive recipes with healthy ingredients!
