Spiced Parsnip Muffins

Serves: 2 (large)

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week! Any exciting plans for the weekend? The weather forecast (for once) finally says sun all weekend, so let’s keep our fingers crossed! I need some Vitamin D! :)

This Friday I am linking up to Laura’s weekly “Strange But Good” fun! Have you checked it out before? It is where you can share recipes that are delicious, but might seem a little, well, ‘strange’! Personally, I find this recipe to be totally normal, but then again, I am a food blogger, which means strange food combinations seem very normal to us! haha I figured, since a lot of people might find this recipe odd, why not share it on a Friday so I can join in on all of the fun! I hope you enjoy this one! P.S – It’s a great way to sneak a few veggies into your diet too! ?

These muffins are loaded with the warm, sweet flavor of cinnamon and allspice and the nutty flavor of the chestnut flour. The parsnips give a sweet hint every few bites making for a nice surprise! They came out sooo soft and moist! I took one bite and was in heaven! I wanted to share one with the bf (he needs all the veggies he can get), but they were just too good! I had one at room temperature and one toasted the following day! Toasted wins in my book! Yummy! :)
