Healthy Harvest Breakfast Muffins

Yummy muffins pack a nutritious punch in the morning, great for a healthy grab-n-go breakfast. You can alter this recipe any way you like and with what you have on hand, very versatile. I started with Banana Oat Muffins from Kathy-Lynn and tweaked it so much it turned into something else. Recipe includes a brown sugar & nut topping. I used almonds and walnuts, but any kind of nut would be good with this.

Ingredients Nutrition

Awesome! a great way to get in healthy omegas and fiber. I made a batch and froze them. They reheat great in the microwave!

The person who said this recipe was dry and tasteless must have left out some of the ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out moist and tasty. What a nice surprise when it is a healthier alternative as well. I can see how you could put other ingredients in with equally good results. Next time I will try cloves instead of ginger just to compare tastes, pecans instead of walnuts. Hmmm, maybe mashed sweet potatoes instead of bananas. I have placed this recipe in my "Excellent" file.

Not good. I was looking for a good, moist healthy option to a traditional muffin. This wasn't it. It wasn't very moist at all, despite many of the reviews I read. Too dense and not very flavorful, despite the various spices. I'd rather just make a traditional bran muffin rather than make this one again.
