Muffin Mania: 10 Awesome Muffins
Fall baking season is here! When the weather starts to cool off, I want to start baking. Normally, I eat overnight oatmeal for breakfast 4 days a week. Overnight oatmeal is easy to make and you can eat it hot or cold. Plus, oatmeal is very good for you - it may help you manage your cholesterol levels.
Anyway, muffins! I like to have variety for breakfast because it can get mundane and very routine having oatmeal everyday. Muffins are a great break! It satisfies my carb-loving side and can still be healthy. I mean - you don't need to use eggs - you can use flax eggs - or instead of white flour, substitute whole wheat flour or other healthy flours available at the supermarket or go flourless! The options are endless!
