These muffins are loaded with real apples, carrots and pecans making them the perfect nutritious start to your morning. The addition of our apple cucumber collagen, cinnamon and vanilla give them the flavor of a decadent dessert, but one you can feel good about eating any time of day. They also keep well in the freezer and are a great option for meal prep plans. By @freshlydafna
