Muffins… the perfect breakfast solution
Muffins, to me, are just a perfect breakfast. They’re easy to grab and eat on-the-go and my kiddos feel like they’re getting a special treat! Even better, these muffins can actually give you an energy boost (rather than a sugar crash!). They come together quickly and easily and end up looking so beautiful!

These muffins use an oat flour base (nothing fancy, you can make it from old fashioned oats). Oats are among the healthiest grains in the world. They are an amazing source of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber, which mean they keep you fuller, longer — so you won’t be reaching for more snacks to hold you over until lunch. They also have a good amount of iron, vitamin B, and antioxidants. The addition of blueberries and lemon adds even more! Blueberries support healthy hearts, healthy bones, and healthy skin, plus they offer have vitamin C and aid in digestion. Lemons kick up the vitamin C even more to help support a healthy immune system — crucial as the temperature changes and your body is needing to adjust.
