In the mornings, I sometimes plan to eat a healthy breakfast of yogurt and granola, milk and wheat cereal, or a bowl of oatmeal. But when I actually wake up, I feel much more tempted by a soft and crunchy Belgium waffle drenched in syrup or a slice of warm, sweet French toast topped with powdered sugar. In short, I want something warmer and tastier. But of course, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should be a healthy meal rich in nutrients.
As a college student, I really don’t have much time to prepare breakfast in the morning, however, so when I discovered the miracle that is a microwave muffin, I fell in love. Sweet but not too sweet, warm, tender, inviting, and nutritious, these muffins are perfect for mixing up your breakfast menu.
