Breakfast Muffins

Who says you have to have plain yogurt for breakfast? With these Chocolate, banana and oat muffins you get all the protein kick from yogurt, the slow release energy from the oats, a good carb kick from the bananas and a healthy chocolatey kick from the raw cacao powder.

There is a little sugar in these muffins, you can reduce this to individual taste. I love a breakfast on the go…especially great for teens who leave getting up to the very last minute. These have everything you could want or need in a breakfast.

Chocolate Banana Muffins

These would also be lovely served with a dollop of thick and creamy Greek yogurt.
