I have a hard time eating breakfast.

To make it easier to remember to eat breakfast in the morning I developed a muffin that is my ideal morning meal. It is filling, but also healthy.

Muffins are very versatile, you can change the flavor to what ever you want. They are also easy to carry, and the perfect size for a morning meal.

To make my perfect breakfast muffin I used bananas. Bananas are one of the quintessential breakfast food. I also added in chopped fresh cranberries and ginger to spice up the muffins. I also used oats so the muffins would be filling.

I chose muffins over banana bread because of the convince muffins offer. Banana bread is awkward to carry, and difficult to eat.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup organic white flour
  • 1/2 cup organic whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup organic sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup chopped cranberries
  • 3 medium size organic bananas
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut oil
  • 1 egg, beaten

 

To Make the Muffins:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 F and grease or line the muffin pan.
  2. Mix together the flours, oats, sugar, baking powder, ginger, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Mash the bananas, then mix in the milk, coconut oil, and egg.
  4. Mix in the chopped cranberries.
  5. Add the dry ingredients and mix until moistened.
  6. Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 of the way full.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

 

Don’t be confused if your muffins are not very sweet, there is not very much sugar and the cranberries are very tart. The lack of sugar gives the muffin a healthier feel, and makes it much more right for breakfast.

Muffins really are the perfect breakfast item. They are not too sweet and you can spice them up however you want.

Enjoy your new breakfast!
