Fenton Power Muffins


“iRun because it’s in my blood.” ~ Caela Fenton

Thanks to Caela Fenton for this big-batch recipe! She says:

“My mother concocted this recipe to give my Dad and me the necessary fuel we need for races. They are nutritious and easy to digest – a perfect pre-run snack. It makes about 6 dozen muffins (haha my family cranks through them!) but if your family can’t make it through that many they keep really well if you freeze them.”
