Dee's Healthy Breakfast Muffins

In my quest to feed myself and my family with healthier food options...I started making these muffins. My son and grandson were always grabbing a granola bar and a banana on the way out the door. I decided they needed a better breakfast without all the preservatives and empty calories. They now eat these most mornings and it keeps them satisfied until lunch..and I feel good about what they are eating. I enjoy them as well and like that they have less gluten, sugar, and bad fats. Enjoy!

2Scoop into lined muffin tins about 3/4 full. top with sliced almonds, sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon sugar. Spray tops with Pam or coconut non stick spray (found it at Trader Joe's)

3Bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm plain or with low fat cream cheese and cold. We love them both ways. Enjoy!
