Breakfast is said to be the most import meal of the day.
But honestly it is rare that I ever eat something before I dash out the door for work. In an effort to get on the breakfast train, I tested out an easy grab and go option. Introducing the healthy morning muffin. I doctored the recipe found here, most ingredients can be found in your pantry!
And voilà breakfast on the go.
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 large eggs
4 medium carrots, shredded
1 medium ripe banana, mashed
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt until there are no lumps. Stir in oats and raisins. Add oil, egg, milk, carrots, and banana and stir until blended.
Place a liner in each muffin tin or spray it with non-stick spray (I use liners for less mess). Fill each muffin cup with 1/4 cup batter. Bake 23 to 25 minutes. Serve muffins warm or at room temperature.
