Healthy Morning Muffins have multiple grains, nuts, and fruit. They make a morning ritual complete for the best and tastiest breakfast. So good and easy.
Muffins are such an easy go-to. In the case of these muffins, they are not only easy and delicious but healthy too. There are multiple grains, nuts, and fruit and it's really a fun recipe to throw together.
Do you pinch off pieces of your muffin and pop them in your mouth? If I haven't smeared them with dairy-free butter that's my habit. Sipping tea or coffee and pinching off pieces of muffins.
Really! Do you do that? It's kind of relaxing. In fact, I almost always eat them plain so they are very pinchable. Muffins are so good and these have a really good texture too.
Another question. Every once in a while do you find yourself running late and you haven't had breakfast yet? Grab a muffin. And wounldn't that be nice if it was a healthier one?

How to Make Muffins at Home
- It is easy!
- It's necessary to have muffins tins. For these breakfast muffins enough for 12 muffins.
- Paper cups come in very handy especially if you're not sure of the recipe yet. Or if the tin in old and blackened or if you want to use as little 'grease as possible' or if you just want to make them prettier with a certain color paper cup.
- Round up all of your ingredients. Sometimes there are quite a few if adding fruit and spices.
- Get the equipment together. Including a mixer or large sturdy wooden spoon, measuring cups and spoons, paring knife and a large bowl.
- Follow the recipe exactly. Baking can be tricky if you go off track.
Can Breakfast Muffins Be Frozen?

- IF FREEZING:
- After they have cooled you may freeze them in any of the methods shown in my article How to Prepare Food for the Freezer.
- They defrost quickly so it really doesn't take any planning. The microwave will also zap them in 20 seconds.
Healthy Morning Muffins
- 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal mixed with 2 ½ tablespoons water - this is the egg substitute
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- ½ cup bran cereal - ground coarsely
- ½ cup finely ground bran cereal
- ½ cup quick cooking oats
- ½ cup cornmeal
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ cup raisins
- 1 cup almond milk
- ⅓ cup dairy-free butter, melted and cooled a bit
- 1 cup 1 apple - whatever the measurement turns out to be - granny smith apple, peeled and cut chunks (this will go into a food processor later. Do not peel the apple until right before using because it will turn brown - a bit.
- Mix the flaxseed meal and water and set aside.
- Put muffin paper liners in 12 muffin cups.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, both bran cereals, oats, cornmeal, sugar, walnuts, raisins, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
- In a food processor add the flaxseed meal mixture, almond milk, melted butter, and apple and process for about 15 seconds.
- Pour this liquid mixture into the large bowl that is holding all the dry ingredients. Stir well until just combined.
- Spoon the batter into each muffin cup. The batter will pretty much be to the top of the muffin cups.
- Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until a toothpick, inserted in the center, comes out clean.
- Transfer muffins to a rack and let cool.
