A healthy alternative to the bakery case
I get it, you’re in a hurry.
You didn’t even have time to make a pot of coffee this morning.
You stop to get your caffeine fix and you realize you also neglected to grab something for breakfast.
Something in the bakery case will do, right?
I’ve had this battle in my head a hundred times:
- “Okay, which pastry has the least amount of frosting?”
- “Hmm, this one says fat-free”
- “Would a scone or a muffin be better for me?”
- “Screw it, can I please have this glazed donut… it’s a cheat day.”
Granted, I work from home now. But nothing makes me feel more prepared than meal-planning and batching my recipes. There is no better way to stick with your healthy-eating goals.
So I’m always thinking of ideas for quick grab-and-go breakfasts and snacks.
These sweet potato muffins are absolutely perfect for both.
These muffins are packed full of nutritious ingredients that are hearty and flavorful. One will tide you over a couple of hours, two will absolutely get you to lunch.
I also threw a couple in my gym bag the other day and had an awesome (and dense) post-workout snack.
You’ll love these for a lot of reasons, they are:
And I’m gonna say it despite despising the word: These muffins are moist!
Bonus: they don’t sound that appetizing, so you don’t have to share.
Make yourself a batch this weekend. You’ll high-five yourself every morning this week for starting off on the right foot!
