mmm…Breakfast Muffins

DSC01728

I found this awesome easy to make breakfast muffin recipe – it’s especially useful to grab when you’re busy and on the run. Breakfast is statistically the most important meal of the day and these little gems ensure that when I have a busy day planned I don’t skip it. I know they look a little small and you’re probably wondering how they fill you, but trust me they do and they are slow release, which means 1 muffin gives you enough energy to sustain you till lunch.

I found the recipe on Food in a minute (link above) and although I changed the recipe up slightly, it still turned out perfectly. I did some subtle substitutions as I am trying very hard to lessen my gluten intake. So instead of the 1 cup flour… I used 1/2 Almond Flour and 1/2 organic rolled oats. I also substituted the 2%milk with low fat coconut milk. You can also substitute the peaches with any other variety of canned fruit – just make sure it’s the reduced sugar option.

12 Muffins and 2 mini heart

Since deciding to introduce healthier alternatives to my diet without drastically changing my eating I’ve found I actually enjoy the whole lifestyle and would recommend that anyone wanting to lose a few extra kilo’s or wanting to improve their healthy foods intake use this method, rather than committing to a harsh diet that tells you it’s okay to enjoy cheat days… this way I don’t need a cheat day and I actually look forward to meals as I’m not being instructed to eating cardboard or drink flavorless soups.

Valentines day is also coming up, so I experimented with making some heart shaped muffins in my pink ramekins, and for an extra bit of love I dusted them lightly with some icing sugar. If you’re keen to give this a try you can pretty them up with extra fruit on the side, some coffee/tea/juice and flours from your garden, for that special someone on valentines day!
