I created this recipe to increase veggies and protein in my 2 year old’s diet.  He’s become quite “independent” aka STUBBORN, in his toddlerness.  With eggs and greek yogurt, I know this is a great power breakfast or healthy snack to boost his nutrition intake. Freeze muffins, to have an on-hand, ready-to-heat-treat – any time of the day!
