I get it. Sometimes you're in a rush, or you oversleep and have to dash out the door. However, it's still important that you remember to eat your breakfast! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day; it sets your mood and energy for the day. These muffins are a perfect on-the-go breakfast and can be made ahead to time. They include ingredients that will keep you going for the whole day, and they are lower in fats and sugars than a regular muffin. These muffins can easily be spiced up with a handful of chocolate chips or berries.
