I may be a bit of a weirdo, but whenever I can get some “me-time” I thoroughly enjoy using it for grocery shopping.
Having the time to go up and down the aisles without a child requesting every second food item we pass feels like a luxury. This past weekend, however, that was not the case. And that is how I ended up with not one, but two full bags of dried cranberries in the cupboard. Not to mention about three bags of baby bell cheese and a box of some cereal with a panda on it that my daughter absolutely had to have.
While half a bag of cranberries got eaten in line, the other half got used to make these muffins. And I now should apologize to my daughter for trying to distract her from making this unnecessary purchase because without it, these delicious muffins would not have been made or shared with you.
These are not your ordinary bakery muffins, they can be labelled “healthy” muffins as they are full of oats, whole wheat flour, and applesauce. But firstly, they are delicious! And if your toddler tends to reach for the bags of raisins or chocolate chips, throw those in instead.
Now if I could only find a use for that extra box of cereal we would be golden!
