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!
