I am so excited that Kasey at Powercakes.net is continuing our Sunday Power Meal Challenge!! Everyone that has been posting over the last 4 weeks has shared some amazing recipes! And we can’t forget the awesome videos that Kasey does too! I know that many of the recipes have inspired me to try a few new things or put together a new combination of fresh, yummy foods!!

This week I am sharing a recipe for what some muffins that I aptly named ‘Powerhouse Muffins’.

    • Thanks so much Candice! That means the world! :) I am VERY happy you are enjoying the recipes and putting your own little spin on things! And as for the cookbook I am being 'pushed' (in a good way) or I should be persuaded into making one sooner than I may have planned! We will see what the future holds! That definitely is ALOT of work! But the requests for it just keep pouring in! Have an amazing day! :)
