Every morning I wake up and want to treat myself to a somewhat healthy, nutritious, but also a scrumptious type of breakfast. I either find myself at a cross road between: Oatmeal Crisp Vanilla Almond, a bowl of fruit over Greek Yogurt, Ancient Grains toast with honey, or caving completely and indulging in homemade waffles and cinnamon sauce! Those grandma’s know how to pass down a legacy in the kitchen!
But then again, so does Google! ( http://bit.ly/1I8w1gT ) I have made these most tasty muffins on a few occasions to fix my morning hunger craving. While still keeping peace of mind that I’m feeding my body something balanced.
It’s the perfect spectrum for taste buds. Some subtle cinnamon, the hint of crunch, juicy and moist, the slight sweetness of coconut and ideally the right amount of apple! For myself, I add natural coconut sugar in replacement of white sugar. I’m not much of a sweet tooth, but I do love a good coconut flavor! There are a few staple ingredients that I add to almost everything: cinnamon, ginger, vanilla and sometimes nutmeg. For these muffins I added in the ginger and nutmeg myself, and a little more vanilla than called for!
Happy Muffin Making – And feel good about what you eat to start your day!
