Rocket Muffins

This delicious muffin is a nutrient packed way to start your day. Made with walnuts and whole-wheat flour, they are a great way to help lower cholesterol and get a nutrient boost first thing in the morning. The omega 3’s in the walnuts and beta-carotene in the carrots both help support brain function and prevent mental health issues. Try these muffins with or without the raspberry jam and you are sure to have a great day.
