High-Fiber Chocolate Zucchini Muffins with NutraCleanse™

Looking for a healthy, high-fibre, kid-friendly recipe that you can send to school with your kids?

Our adapted version of this awesome muffin recipe created by Natalie Browne of Kitchen, Uncorked is incredible. The muffins are low in sugar, totally vegan, and super high in both fiber and taste.

Fiber is SO important to one’s health. It’s essential to help keep digestive issues at bay, and is directly related to lowered blood pressure and lowered blood sugar. Fiber keeps your body regular, and plays an important role in digestive health and wellness.

Aside from raw and steamed fruits and vegetables, whole grains are a great addition to any child’s diet. (And yours!)

If you feel as though your child’s diet is lacking in fiber, NutraCleanse™ is a great supplement. It’s made with only five ingredients, and is incredibly high in not only fiber, but also vitamins and antioxidants.

And that’s where this yummy, high-fibre recipe comes in.

Finding a great recipe that’s healthy, fiber-rich, and nut-free is hard. So when you do find one, you have to get your kids on board! If the muffins aren’t sweet enough for your children, you can add semi-sweet chocolate chips to make them pack more kiddie punch.

So what are you waiting for? Start grating that zucchini, and away you go!
