Muffin Mix
Muffins, the perfect grab and eat on the go breakfast treat. These will give you the energy you need and they taste… glorious.

Morning Glory Muffins
Usually I’m not so big on whole wheat flour baked goods, they always taste dry to me… but not these, probably due to the mix of flours. These are light and moist and delicious. If you have too many, they freeze well and come in handy on those mornings you have no time to sit down and eat. Just warm them in the microwave for a few seconds and wallah… breakfast is done.

I have made these with different varieties of dried fruits, various nuts, and with/without coconut. I think it would do well with 1 carrot and 1 grated zucchini if you want to add more of a vegetable variety. The original recipe calls for 2 TBSP of toasted wheat germ sprinkled on top before baking, but I haven’t gotten around to finding that at the grocery store… maybe one day.
