Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I think I’ve written it before, but it’s also my favourite meal. Because, well, don’t we all love pancakes, and croissants, and eggs benedict (like these), and…? The list of possibilities is endless! Of course there is the more, let’s say, nourishing kind of breakfast (examples above), but you can’t have it all every day, right? So mostly during the week I eat my usual fruits, and then later at work a sandwich. However on weekends I like to enjoy that time a bit more, sometimes even in form of a brunch (but who doesn’t?).
To make things a bit more interesting during the week (there’s only so many sandwiches you can eat), I like to experiment a bit. I tried the breakfast smoothie, which was a good start, and I want to try one of these smoothie bowls as well. And granola! So expect some more recipes from this direction. But let’s start with those breakfast muffins!
- 250g of oatmeal
- 250g of applesauce
- 350ml of milk
- 100g of raspberries
- 100g of blueberries
- A handful of walnuts
- Honey to taste
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. of cinnamon
- 1 tsp. of baking powder
- ¼ tsp. of salt
Preheat your oven to 180°C. While the oven is heating up, grease the muffin tins with butter. Or, if you have silicone moulds, you don’t have to grease them at all. Chop the walnuts.
In a large bowl, combine the oatmeal with the applesauce. Then add cinnamon, baking powder and salt and mix. Next stir in the milk, egg, some honey, the walnuts and the berries. Keep some berries for decoration.
Fill the mixture into the muffin moulds and decorate with the leftover berries. Bake the muffins for 40 minutes. Let them cool and enjoy for breakfast!
I really really like that the breakfast muffins aren’t too sweet! I just added some honey and then we have the sweetness of the applesauce and the berries. Sounds healthy right? Although fructose is in fact sugar, but going without some sweetness would be soo boring! So you can easily grab those muffins for a quick breakfast on the go or enjoy them with some time of course. So, what do you think?
