Hearty Breakfast Muffins

KatieTries2Cook 3

"Healthy, hearty breakfast muffins. These have a lightly sweet flavor and lots of wholesome ingredients to get your day started. Moist, chewy, and not overly dense. Easily customizable! You can use any flavor of yogurt, but I prefer plain Greek yogurt. Customize with your favorite nuts or seeds, zucchini or squash, cooked sweet potato, raisins or cranberries, etc. Enjoy!"

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Mix carrots, banana, zucchini, vegetable oil, yogurt, and eggs together until fully incorporated.
  3. Whisk flour and baking soda in a separate bowl. Mix brown sugar, oats, coconut, pecans, cherries, cinnamon, salt, and ginger into flour mixture until all ingredients are coated in flour. Stir wet ingredients into flour mixture until just combined. Scoop batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean and edges are slightly brown, 17 to 22 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

I really, really enjoyed these healthy muffins, so did my almost 2 year old daughter and my husband. They were delicious and moist. We are striving to reduce processed foods and this was a p...

I have made these twice and have had excellent results both times. My only pet peeve with this recipe is that it calls for "one zucchini" - if you see the massive size of the ones that came out...

If I could give 2.5, I would. These had a lot of potential. Unfortunately, they come out super soggy and mushy. I felt like it needed more flour going in, but I stuck to the recipe (unlike pr...

I used soy milk instead of yogurt, spelt flour instead of whole wheat, and raisins instead of cherries. I replaced the brown sugar with half the amount of honey, and found that these were VERY ...

Very adaptable. I make these all the time at the request of my hubby, but I use leftover baked plain sweet potatoes or canned pumpkin in place of the zucchini - no one in my house cared much for...

Great snack or healthy breakfast. Teamed with a sausage frittata for a working breakfast meeting. Hit a good note with Paleo dieters, vegetarian and all of us between. Rave reviews and they kept...
