Anyone else a fellow muffin fan over here? I have a muffin problem. A muffin addiction. At all times there must always be a stash of muffins in my fridge or freezer.
Why Another Muffin Recipe?
Muffins are my go-to snack and great breakfast on the go. I love adding a side of frozen berries and plain Greek yogurt for extra fibre and protein. Muffins are a funny thing; they can be super healthy or they can basically be a cupcake in disguise. Most store-bought muffins are very high in sugar, refined carbohydrates and unhealthy, cheap oils. Making your own at home is a much more cost-effective and nutritious option. This recipe is a delicious, fertility-boosting combination of healthy fats, antioxidants, whole grains and protein. Enjoy!
