Healthy Delicious Breakfast

My new favorite energizing and delicious breakfast is Low Fat Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins with a Fruit Smoothie

Low Fat Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins:

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups wheat bran
  • 1 cup nonfat milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup blueberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease muffin cups or use paper muffin liners. Mix together wheat bran and milk, and let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together applesauce, egg, brown sugar, and vanilla. Beat in bran mixture. Sift together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir into bran mixture until just blended. Fold in blueberries. Scoop into muffin cups.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes

Fruit Smoothie: (I don’t measure)

  • Orange Juice
  • Low Fat Vanilla Yogurt
  • 1 Banana
  • Frozen strawberries
  • Frozen Mango
  • Frozen Blueberries
  • Frozen Raspberries

Sometimes I will add some soy protein powder or use apple juice instead of orange juice. This makes for an energizing start to my day, also always take your vitamins with your breakfast!
