1 Simple Recipe for a Quick and Healthy Breakfast: Microwave Muffins

Updated on September 23, 2016

Sometimes quick, healthy, and tasty don't go together. Well, most of the time they don't go together. Everyone wants to eat healthier, right? But it's just so incredibly hard! Especially when the truly healthy food often tastes like cardboard and can leave us unsatisfied. That's why I love finding healthy food that doesn't taste healthy. And this microwave paleo muffin recipe fits the bill perfectly.

The recipe is very versatile. While there are four main ingredients, you can add whatever you want for some more flavor or nutrition. I like putting in flax meal for a little bit of extra nutrition and oatmeal for a denser consistency. My sister likes putting in berries and chocolate chips. Whatever you want to add, you can add.
