I totally relate to parents who want their kids to be uber-healthy, but I was surprised that when I suggested to a health conscious mom last week that muffins would be a great snack choice for her child, she practically scoffed at me. To a certain extent, I can't fault her. When you buy a muffin at most bakeries or from the grocery, they tend to be loaded with sugar. I've tasted muffins before that were so sweet they could have passed for a cupcake.

Now while a sugar laden muffin can be a perfect choice for a PMS mommy, it's not necessarily the greatest idea for an overactive kid. These Very Berry Muffins are a different story. They are a much more healthy way to satisfy those muffin cravings, featuring a blast of antioxidants. Unlike some berry muffins where you may find some fruit in every other bite, these baked gems are loaded with three different kinds of berries which burst in your mouth in every last bite. Made with the least amount of sugar possible and ideal for breakfast or a snack, these babies will change your opinion of the every day muffin.

Check out this video which shows how easy they are to whip up!

    I make a batch of these as a mini muffin every couple of weeks, and just switch up the fruit (this week is wild organic blueberries!) and pop in the freezer. Every morning I pop a frozen muffin and some berries in a snack bowl for my toddler’s lunch bag for his afternoon snack. Healthy and delicious — the frozen muffin thaws by snack time, but helps keep the berries cold through the morning.

    I just tried them but because I did not have the berry mix I added 1 cup of frozen blueberries and 1 cup of frozen cranberries.
    I love that they are not overly sweet and not too caky with plenty of fruit (not like some “faux” berry muffins you buy)…
    GREAT Recipe! THANK YOU!

    i think muffins are a great snack. whether or not something is un/healthy just depends on the ingredients. check out this fantastic, light and fluffy, gluten free, hi protein, fruity, delicious muffin- http://www.weeklygreens.com/recipes/banana-almond-butter-muffins/
    i think it’s even better with shredded, unsweetened coconut. and if you want to be decadent- add some chocolate chips. fab!

    My very picky 2 year old LOVES these muffins. We make them together, usually a big batch, and she has one almost every weekday morning. I found them to be a little dry, so I usually add some more milk. I also grind up the oatmeal in a food processor for a smoother consistency in the muffins. But there is a ton of fruit in them and if I can get something this healthy in her, I will! Thanks for the recipe!
