Blueberry Oat Bran Muffin Recipe
Looking for a sweet and satisfying morning pick me up. Most store bought or packaged muffins have no nutrutional value and leave you filling hungry.
These muffins pack a punch with a dose of fiber along with the fiber from fresh fruit. Make these muffins ahead of time and store in the freezer and then pop them in the microwave and go.
Be sure to include more than a muffin for your morning. Slice them open and slather with peanut butter for some protein. Or at a lean slice of turkey bacon for a sweet and savory sandwich.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and deserves consideration for what is to come during the day. Think about what you eat and how it will affect you for the rest of the day.
Enjoy your morning with a lasting breakfast so you won't have to grab a snack later.
Remember don't guess test to see how your body reacts to food.
