Sweet or Savory Maple Squash Muffins

 

Rise and shine with whole-wheat muffins! The base of these muffins is only mildly sweet, meaning you can go one of two ways with your add-ins: deepen the flavor with dark chocolate chips, or add sesame seeds and green onions for a savory spin. Either way, your muffins will be packed with nutrients. These muffins are perfect for a quick breakfast or snack.  Paired with Saba Ace™ and Saba Shape™ these low-fat muffins are a great way to boost your energy.

Did you know… Dark chocolate chips are rich in antioxidants, while green onions are full of vitamins K and C.
