Healthy Pistachio Muffins

Every year we go down to Avalon, NJ in the summer with four other families for a week of relaxation 🙂 I try my best to shut off a bit when I’m down here, spend less time on Instagram, care a bit less about the number of likes we get on a photo, and just enjoy family time. And, enjoy good food like these muffins!

I planned on making a batch of these muffins to bring down, and then realized how much I needed to pack with a newborn. Needless to say, the muffins didn’t happen this year. I also forgot all of Luca’s adorable little bathing suits, so I did a good job. Good thing there’s always next year!

Luckily, these Healthy Pistachio Muffins are super quick to whip up so I can make a batch here! And unlike most pistachio muffins, no pudding mix box is required. Healthy and easy, just the way I like my baked goods 😉.
