Are you a Muffin Top or Bottom kind of person … Which part do you eat first?. Some people start at the top… skillfully peeling off the muffin hat… working their way to the bottom until it’s all done. Others, start with the bottom … saving the top for the very end.
Now, who am I to discriminate – a muffin is a muffin in all it’s muffin-y glory and I do love a good muffin every now and then – but
Kinda gal!! Not because I like the bottom better .. in fact just the opposite. That’s right, I’ll rip the top of a muffin off … devour the bottom and save.the.best.for.last. YUMMM…MUFFIN TOP!! I also prefer my muffins plain – hold the butter – - save the jam. I want it to be just me and my muffin :).
What kind of muffin eater are you? Either way, I have a yummy for my tummy breakfast/snack/ anytime of the day kind of treat for you sugar monsters today. It’s a Current kind of Carrot Currant Muffin!!
You heard me, this carrot muffin is new .. it’s jazzy… it’s what all the cool kids are talking about. It’s the stuff the haves are eating and the have-nots want to be eating (Pretty special muffin wouldn’t you say?!? :D lol).
So do yourself a favour and GET.THESE.IN.YOUR.BELLAAYYY. The best part, this version is whole wheat * yahhooo– for my attempts at being healthy*. Stay hip – stay happening … stay current ;)
