I hope this recipe comes to you just in time to help with the lunch box/ snack box dilemma as we are heading back to school soon!
These sweet little treats are loaded with protein and healthy omegas for those sweet little brains and bodies!
These chocolate chip muffins can be kept in an air tight container, either in the refrigerator or on counter top or you can place them in a freezer safe container to store them in the freezer for any snack emergency that may arise! I like to make a surplus and store in the freezer so I can just pop them in my littles lunch boxes or snack boxes and they are at ready to eat temperature by the time lunch rolls around.

1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp ground flax seed mixed with 6 tbsp water

They also go really nicely with a nice cup of tea and a good book, because what else would you have to do with your time once your children are back in school??? 🤦🏻♀️😂😂
My kiddos really like these AND they have gotten very good feedback from their friends as well. I hope this recipe helps and of course, let me know how you like them!
