You know those mornings when it’s really really hard to get up and all you want to do is stay in bed and sleep for just another minute or two…and then once you get up, you realise you have to be out of the house in like 10 minute and there is no time for breakfast anymore? These Healthy Blueberry Breakfast Muffins are perfect for those days when time is not your friend.
I love making them in the evening before work and Jeremy and I usually just take two or three each with us whenever we have to rush out of the house quickly in the morning. They also are a really tasty and healthy snack during the day whenever you feel a little peckish.
These muffins are super easy to make and healthy too. They’re not overly sweet which I really like, as this is supposed to be breakfast and not a dessert. The muffins get their sweetness mainly from the rice malt syrup and the banana. They also taste quite nutty thanks to the almonds and the buckwheat flour. And obviously blueberries and cinnamon are in there too, which make the whole thing a little more interesting.
This recipe is very easily adaptable to make a gluten free version. Just use gluten free rolled oats and you’re all good to go. I prefer my muffins with fresh blueberries as they’re currently in season here in Australia, however, if blueberries are not in season wherever you are, frozen ones work just as well.
I hope you like this recipe and if you do, please let us know and tag your creations on Instagram @nothangryanymore.
