Applesauce Muffins

If you haven’t checked out Jessica Seinfeld’s not so new cookbook “Deceptively Delicious”  your missing out!  Jessica is the wife of comedian/actor Jerry Seinfeld, but she is making waves all by herself!  The layout of the is book super simple and she makes cooking for even the most novice chef’s easy peasy!  The basis of the book is to get your picky eaters to eat good foods by hiding pureed fruits and vegetables, cooking light, and using whole grains and lean proteins.  We have used two recipes thus far and they have been a huge hit!  My daughter is not against eating fruits and vegetables necessarily but she does NOT like proteins or green veggies.  My husband is the real chore to cook for and he has enjoyed both recipes I have cooked thus far.

The first night I made Chicken Nuggets.  The chicken breast tenders were cubed, rolled in a spinach puree, flax seed meal, some other spices, and then rolled in whole-wheat breadcrumbs.  Then they are cooked stove top in a small amount of olive oil.  My daughter and husband LOVED them!!  After the great success that the chicken recipe was, I decided next to try out a breakfast food.  There was a great recipe for applesauce muffins made with a butternut squash puree.  Mirabelle’s favorite veggie is butternut squash so I knew this would be a hit!  These are topped off with a sweet, crunchy strudel topping which makes these muffins extra yummy.  My only complaint was that these were a tad on the dry side but my daughter devoured her muffin and wanted more!

I definitely recommed purchasing this book and there is a website with more recipes @
