Healthy Breakfast Muffins

Hi Everyone. Since I went to South Africa for a holiday I’ve been eating non-stop. I gained about 8 pounds and now that I’m back home in Korea I have to get back to eating normally and making some changes in my sugar intake so you can expect a few more healthier meals from me in the next few weeks 😀

Bran muffins are an excellent meal for breakfast, lunch or even just for a snack, they are wholesomely delicious and juicy. I use a basic packet of Bran Muffin mix and make it as specified and then comes the special ingredients…. add a cup of raisins and 1 grated apple. This gives the muffins a fruity taste and moist consistency. You could even go further by adding a grated carrot to give it more of a carrot cake feel.

  • 1 grated apple
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon ( Optional)
  • 1 grated carrot (optional)

Mix the muffin mix as indicated on the packet. Add the raisins, grated apple, carrot and cinnamon. Scoop mixture into lightly greased muffin pans and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Lemon Meringue Yogurt in less than 10 minutes.

I love anything lemon and my husband loves lemon meringue pie. I’ve recently discovered that I can make flavoured yogurt and therefore I’ve made some Lemon meringue flavoured yogurt. Its a real easy way to spruce up plain yogurt and you are in control of how much sugar you add.

Ingredients

Powdered sugar

Plain or vanilla yogurt

1 Fresh lemon (juiced)

Directions

Mix the lemon juice and yogurt together. Use a half teaspoon of powdered sugar and add more to suit your taste. Scoop into cute glasses and serve as a light breakfast or snack.
