A Healthy Muffin Recipe For Breakfasts

Are you looking for a healthy breakfast option that you will actually enjoy eating? Consider making muffins at home. Not every muffin recipe is healthy -- many contain fatty butter and a lot of white sugar -- but you can make healthy muffins if you try. Here is a healthy muffin recipe you can make with a few simple health food products from your local health food store, or perhaps even a standard grocery store.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup organic oat flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground, organic flax seed
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 egg or 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or coconut oil
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

You can add whatever you want to this basic muffin recipe for some variety. A cup of fresh raspberries is a great choice. Fresh blueberries work well, too; use about 1 1/4 cups. If you are trying to get more healthy fats into your diet, try adding 1/2 cup chopped walnuts; they are high in omega-3 fatty acids.

Directions:

Combine the wheat flour, oat flour, kosher salt, flax seed, and baking powder in a large bowl. Whisk until the mixture is evenly combined. 

In a separate bowl, combine the egg, almond milk, and agave nectar. Whisk to combine, continuing until the egg gets a little frothy. Create a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients, and then pour the wet ingredients into the hole. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, just until moistened. You may still have a few lumps, and that's okay. If you want to add some mix-ins like raspberries or walnuts, stir them in at this point, being careful not to over-stir.

Place paper liners in 12 muffin tins. Fill the muffin tins 3/4 full with the muffin batter. If you added a lot of mix-ins, you may end up with more than 12 muffins, in which case, you can start a new pan.

Place your muffins in a 375 degree F oven, making sure that they are centered in the middle of the oven. Bake for approximately 18 - 22 minutes or until the muffins are slightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let the muffins cool in the tins for about 10 minutes. Then, remove them from the tins and let them cool completely on a wire rack. Enjoy!

About Me

Food Service And Supply: A Look At The Cycle As I watched new restaurants opening up all over my small town, I became curious about where they sourced their food from. I connected with some of the business owners and inquired about the restaurant food sourcing business, learning a lot along the way about food suppliers, shipping, and storage. If you've ever wondered about what goes on behind the scenes of your favorite restaurant when they are ordering and receiving food supplies, this site will help you understand. I've created this blog to help others better understand the industry in the hopes of increasing the appreciation of restaurant operations and food handling.
