Healthy Morning Glory Breakfast Muffins (Vegan, Meal Prep)

I was looking for a healthy-ish muffin recipe to make for snack this week, then I remembered these healthy breakfast muffins that I used to make for breakfast years ago. They are packed with veggies such as zucchini and carrots and sweetened with apples, banana, dried sultanas and a couple of tablespoon of coconut sugar for some added caramel-y taste. I have made them with rye flour, almond meal, semolina and rolled oats, so they are packed with complex carbohydrates to keep you fuller for longer. These muffins also make the perfect meal prep breakfast as you can make a batch on the weekend and have them for breakfast each day for the week ahead. These muffins are also vegan, so you can share them with your vegan friends.

These muffins are also extremely moist (which is why I used to make them all the time) and tastes delicious. You won’t even know there are vegetables or fruit in them. So, if you are trying to up your vegetable or fruit intake or have children who are fussy eaters, you can try feeding them these muffins. I hope you get to try and make (and taste) these muffins 🙂

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have. As always, please let me know what you think of this recipe.
