“One of my goals is to eat better at breakfast. I am not a morning person and so I seem to all too often run out the door to work and not grab a thing for breakfast. That leads to either eating no breakfast. That leads to either eating no breakfast, which is not healthy, or picking up fast food, which is also not healthy. This muffin recipe comes from my mom. Mom always makes these at the holidays. But not just the winter ones. We would also have them on the morning of 4th of July before we headed out to watch the parade. They are absolutely wonderful and nutritious! I make a double or even triple batch and then freeze them. That makes it a snap to just grab one (or two or three) on the goo and has me actually eating a nutritious breakfast.”
