If you're looking for a yummy and mostly nutritious snack for your kids, look no further. This recipe for Pumpkin Flax Muffins (it's actually a vegan recipe, although I am not a vegan) is such a hit with my girls and it's sooooo easy to make. Seriously, my girls are the pickiest eaters on the planet and they LOVE these. I thought, if my kids love these, surely, yours will, too. Enjoy!
