Superfood Muffins

If you’re the mom always trying to get the “green stuff” in, I feel you! And sometimes, I just don’t want to fight. My kids eating zucchini is like fighting with a bunch of crazy monkeys – I’m pretty sure it’s a texture thing with squash. BUT, one way they don’t fight with me is through baking with zucchini. They gobble these things right up!

Not only did I use a vegetable in this recipe, but I also used a freakin’ immune boostin’ ‘change your life’ type of supplement – REISHI! Such a great + potent mushroom that has health benefits we dream of having! And of course, we throw in some berries, but not just ANY berries, but GOJI BERRIES!

Goji berries are rich in selenium, zinc, iron, protein, vitamin A, potassium, and calcium. They are the BOMB. My kids eat them like raisins, so I’m just going to throw a handful in the mix! Plus, dark chocolate chips. Duh.
