Healthy morning muffins are a perfect way to start the day, with oats, flaxseed, carrots, raisins, and bananas. Wonderful as a snack or lunchbox treat, too.
Healthy morning muffins are so hearty and flavorful. If you’re looking for a quick breakfast that you can eat on the go, this is the muffin for you! They don’t break the calorie bank (only 147 calories!) and offer so much good-for-you nutrition. They are very tasty, and go great with scrambled eggs and a cup of coffee.
But just because they’re called “morning” muffins, don’t think you can enjoy them only for breakfast. These filling muffins are are perfect for a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. Add them to lunchboxes for a nutritious treat. Serve them with a bowl of soup for lunch.
I adapted this recipe for healthy morning muffins from Everyday Food magazine, one of my favorite magazines. I make them even healthier than the original recipe by using whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose white flour, and adding ground flaxseed. Add that to rolled oats, plenty of fruit, and carrots, for tons of fiber, nutrition, and flavor in just one of these healthy muffins.
If you’ve been buying your muffins at a bakery or coffee shop, try making homemade. They are so much better for you and way more economical, as well.
