One of my favourite ways to get more fibre into my family’s diet is to include as many veggies as I can into my recipes. This Super Greens Muffin recipe is healthy, full of flavour and yummier than you might think! If you like a bit of sweetness but want to avoid sugar, you can add some mashed banana to this recipe.
