Delilicious: St. Patty's Day Muffins For the Top of the Mornin'

This year St. Patrick's Day falls on a Wednesday, which means your family will be rushing through the school and work week and lucky if you remember to wear green tees (seriously, don't forget that kids pinch!). If you're too busy chasing a pot of gold to make a whole St. Patty's Day spread, add a little semi-homemade green treat first thing in the morning with healthy muffins decked out with a pinch of green.

These tiny morsels can be made the day or night before and are healthy enough you'll feel OK serving them at the top of the morning for breakfast. I chose a mix and decorated them in advance with my tots. For the recipe and suggestions,
