Mornings can be tricky! Everyone trying to get to their day’s destination on time. Grumpiness getting in the way. With everything that is trying to be remembered, breakfast can get skipped if it becomes too complicated. And well… that’s just silly.
I’ve always been a muffin person. I think they’re great for breakfast. I usually have a muffin with a piece of cheese and some fruit. To me, this is a yummy breakfast.
The problem is that so many muffins are little more than a breakfast shaped cake, leaving you hyped up on sugar temporarily with an energy crash inevitable. Instead of starting your day off with a drive-thru muffin, make these in advance. You’ll not only be opting for a healthier muffin, but you’ll save money as well!. This muffin recipe is stocked full of healthy ingredients and are an excellent source of fibre.
Like most of my favorite recipes, this one is versatile and can be easily customized! Today, I’m posting the Apple Crisp variation that I just recently made. I’m really pleased with how they turned out. They’re so yummy! I hope you enjoy them, too.
