SEEDY OATMEAL MUFFINS

I’ve been in quite the baking mood lately! Muffins have been on my mind, but I wanted to make a healthy muffin that would provide lots of nutrition for breakfast. I happen to love any baked good with tons of nuts and seeds. The texture is just so crunchy and I love the added flavors. So of these desires comes my seedy oatmeal muffins.

I used whole wheat flour for added fiber, oats for added antioxidants, and all-purpose flour for the perfect dense muffin. I also froze a few of these yummy muffins for post-partum, knowing that oats are a great source of iron for milk supply too (breastfeeding). When it comes to nuts, seeds and dried fruits, feel free to get creative! I really just used up whatever I had on hand. This happened to be pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, raisins, cranberries and pistachios. Other delicious toppings I’d recommend? Try shredded coconut, poppy seeds, chopped pecans, chopped dried apricots or chocolate chips.

This morning I sliced a seedy oatmeal muffin in half with a slather of peanut butter- yum! Another great slather? Yogurt and honey! I keep these muffins in the refrigerator because I like my baked goods cold, but feel free to re-heat them before enjoying. They should keep fresh in the refrigerator for about three to four days (or three months in the freezer).
