Apple And Oat Bran Muffins - Healthy Breakfast

Updated on January 10, 2014

Breakfast can set the tone for your whole day. If you are dieting, this means you should probably start it healthy. These apple and oat bran muffins are extremely healthy for you, and they are easy to make as well. This is a baking recipe and should probably be prepared the night before so you can just relax and enjoy in the morning. A stress free kitchen is after all the best kind of kitchen. Just be sure that you hide all of these because if you have children, they might try to take all of them up to their rooms when you aren't looking for a midnight snack. The refrigerator probably isn't the best place to hide them.
