My Go-To (Healthy!) Breakfast Muffin

Lately I have had zero time to make breakfast in the morning. Nearly every day I work at 10:00 with a 25 minute commute, so I rush out the door at 9:30 and make it right on time to open. It's so important to get a nutritious breakfast every day, but I find it difficult to find the time to do so! I did a little brainstorming (aka perusing on Pinterest, follow me here!) and found the most delicious recipe for zucchini muffins that make a great breakfast and that you can prepare ahead of time for the entire week.



These muffins are sweet, moist and bite size so they make the perfect little breakfast on the go! They're also full of veggies and whole grains but not a lot of added sugar, making them actually super healthy for you. I'll make them on a Sunday night so I can grab one or two for each morning of the upcoming week.

Ingredients: 
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or honey)
1 large egg, beaten 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup finely grated zucchini
1/2 cup finely grated carrot
1/2 cup raisins 

They do take a little bit of work to prepare because you have to grate all of the zucchini and carrot, but trust me when I say they are well worth the work! After they come out of the oven, I like to sprinkle a little cinnamon on top and slap on a tiny bit of butter for flavor. 

If you try making these muffins definitely tweet me a picture @citrusandstyle!
 I would love to see what you think :)

  3. I've always loved making zucchini bread (we have a garden and it produces a ton of zucchini every year), but I've never tried it in muffin form, but I think I will!
