And sometimes you eat everything around you for a month between grad week, graduation, being sick, and a bachelorette party… and you need something healthy but tasty to eat. Insert: these muffins.

These muffins have 1 tablespoon of sugar in the entire batter. Well, 3 if you count the streusel, but that’s optional. Strict dieters can leave that out. Me? Not a strict dieter. Just a “I should probably chill out with the Cookout milkshakes and Chex Mix for a bit and focus on healthier foods.”

Healthy doesn’t have to taste bad, people. These bad boys are mom-approved. And that says something.

Also, don’t mind the change in muffins. The sun came out and made the lighting all caraaazy.
