I have been making my Fuel to Go Muffins for over 15 years and they are still my number 1 favourite muffin! Loaded with a ton of super healthy ingredients!
These Fuel to Go Muffins really live up to their name, they are seriously LOADED with carrots, fruits, seeds and multigrain. Try them once and you will have everyone begging you to make more.
Another nutritionally dense recipe you may enjoy in my recipe for Fuel to Go Protein Bars.
These muffins are a huge hit with my son's Track and Field teammates. They are perfect for breakfast or to refuel with during the day. A great snack for athletes! So whether you are hiking a mountain, spending the day snowboarding, or running a marathon, be sure to pack some of these super delicious muffins.
My son is allergic to nuts, so I add protein content with hemp seed and chia seeds. I love using multigrain flour as it adds great taste and a nice crunch to the muffins. If you can't find multigrain flour, whole wheat flour will work. Fuel to Go Muffins are a healthy breakfast muffin or after school snack. In our house we call them "Athlete Fuel". This nutrient dense muffin tastes amazing and fills you up. One of my All Time Favourite Recipes!

Fuel to Go muffins smell incredible baking in the oven. I love eating them warm, but they also freeze very well.
A ton of heathy ingredients all measured out ready to bake, just like on the TV Cooking Shows. This makes it easy to whip up the batter for the muffins. Now if only someone would do this for me, and wash the dishes after!
Shredded carrots, apple and well drained crushed pineapple are added to dry ingredients.
Next slightly beat eggs, oil and vanilla together in separate bowl or large measuring cup.
Stir in egg mixture and mix only until incorporated (don't over mix) Mixture should be really thick.
Fill paper lined muffins tins until heaping full.
Bake 350º for 30-35 minutes.
Cool slightly, then move to wire rack to cool or eat warm! These muffins freeze great!
