Simply Amazing Morning Muffins

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Sometimes in the morning we seem to have the least amount of time. That's why these scrumptious muffins work so well. This recipe uses Grandma Nunweiler's Whole Grain Pancake & Waffle Mix - a bit of a time saver as some of the ingredients are already in the mix.

One muffin is only 123 calories and contains antioxidants, omega 3's, vitamins like A, C & E, minerals like selenium, potassium, manganese and much more! It's low in fat, cholesterol and even sodium. Have an 8 oz glass of milk along with this muffin and you've boosted your protein from 3g (muffin) to over 11g. That's a great start to your day. The bulk of carbs in these muffins come from complex carbs that you need for a good energy start to your day. They cover so many nutrition bases, yet taste great - that's simply amazing!
