Healthy Breakfast Muffins

These fill me up when I want a hearty breakfast on the go. Pair with some fresh fruit for a complete breakfast, no cartoon cereal mascots required.

Preheat oven to 400 F

Mix in a large measuring cup or bowl:

  • 3/4 c non dairy milk (I used cashew) + 
  • 1 tsp ACV (apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp flax

Let that sit for about 5 minutes.

Mix in a separate bowl:

  • 1/2 c white flour
  • 1/2 c whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp spice* (see below for options)
  • 1/4 c hemp protein
  • 1/4 c hemp seed (hemp hearts)

Add to measuring cup or liquids bowl:

  • 1/4 c maple syrup (real stuff)
  • 1/4 c canola oil

Next add 1/2 cup of fill-ins* (see below for options)

Oil a 6 muffin tin

Stir until just mixed, then scoop using the 1/4 cup measure that’s already dirty evenly into the 6 muffin cups

Bake for 25 min at 400F

Nutritional Info & Subs

For the nutritional info, I used the last variation. I used this calculator.

  • You could use any plant based milk (not dairy because that’s for a baby cow, not for you, silly face).
  • If you don’t have ground flax, chia would be ok but second best
  • You could use entirely white flour if you are boring
  • You could add up to another 1/4 cup hemp protein if doing one of the ‘wetter’ flavours and are interested in ultra high protein, this may affect the taste a bit.
  • You could use agave for the maple syrup, or 1/4 cup brown sugar + 1 TBSP more liquid, such as non dairy milk.
