Say goodbye to the holiday gluttony and good morning to eating well with these Healthy Morning Glory Muffins.
So here we are, back on the healthy eating bandwagon. I don’t know about you, but starting my day on the right foot with eating sets the whole tone for the day. Which is why I loooooove these Healthy Morning Glory Muffins. Packed with loads of “good stuff”, like whole wheat flour, flaxseed, carrots, apples, nuts and Greek yogurt, these muffins make sticking to your New Year’s resolutions for healthier eating a piece of cake.
Lisa and I enjoy spirited debate about the presence of nuts in baked goods. I’m firmly in the “Load them in” category, while Lisa is firmly entrenched in the “Leave them out” camp. Clearly these muffins are all mine. The more stuff I can throw in them, the better. Which also means they are super easy to customize to whatever leftover bits are hiding in your pantry. A handful of dried apricots from some holiday appetizers? Toss them in. Out of walnuts? Try subbing in pecans. You can even toss in those last few chocolate chips from your holiday baking adventures, although more than a few does kinda negate the “healthy” aspect of these muffins, but I’ll never judge.
