Magic Muffins

My Grandmother has a recipe just like this one, although hers is a tad more bland so I’m always adding more flavor. As I’ve mentioned before, a balance of protein and fiber are essential in breakfast to keep you satisfied and full. These muffins pack a lot of flavor with the orange and the brans make it quite hearty. I like to put a small bit of greek yogurt on mine!

  1. I love freezing muffins for later. I have found that whole milk and egg yolks make them moist after thawing and makes them more filling. Have you considered gearing up the fat? It could be pretty good. I stopped over from Real Food Wednesday.

      Hi Melissa! Thanks for coming by. While adding the yolks and whole milk would make them more filling it also adds calories to those trying to watch their intake. And while I agree that there are good fats out there and that they are necessary, some people are just jumping in to watching what they eat. The added fiber and protien to these muffins make them more than filling to get through the morning. You can use the yolks for an egg wash later on too, you don’t necessarily need to buy the processed whites in the carton. I also use a natural whey protien from my natural grocer to avoid any additives from the other powders.

  2. Think I could substitute wheat germ for the oat bran?
