oatmeal muffins: the perfect breakfast for busy people

by Michelle

I know few people who don’t feel rushed in the morning, especially on busy days. Given that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it’s critical to fuel your body with something nutritious, oatmeal muffins are the perfect, busy people, breakfast option.

Oatmeal Muffins are a snap to make, perfect to freeze, easy to pack and will keep you energized until lunchtime.

Oatmeal is a great source of fiber, which is why you feel full and satisfied. However, I prefer my oatmeal in muffin form. Oatmeal in a bowl makes my gag reflex go wild. It’s also easier to grab and run with a muffin than a bowl of gloopy cereal.

One of the things that I love most about my Oatmeal Muffin recipe is how you can customize it to your own taste preferences. You can add any ingredients you like, from fresh fruit to nuts and seeds. My go-to is wild blueberries but I’ve also used chopped apple, raspberries, peaches and blackberries. You can decrease the brown sugar to almost half and still have a really tasty muffin. I’ve even decreased the amount of oatmeal and topped up with bran with great success.

My Oatmeal Muffin recipe allows you to create a muffin that’s packed with nutrients that will keep you feeling full and energized throughout the morning and is completely designed to your own taste buds.

Thanks for reading.
