I’m on a berry kick lately.
I don’t know why the beauty of frozen berries didn’t occur to me before but I am hooked now. It is still possible to get fresh berries right now but it is fall and soon we won’t be getting fresh berries, at least not that we can buy without putting a second mortgage on the house.
Muffins filled with whole wheat flour and flax meal make my heart sing. At least once a week Maddy gets a breakfast of a muffin and banana in the car as we take Luke to work and having yummy muffins on hand keeps me sane and her fed. Kids love muffins. Especially if it means not going hungry. Moms love healthy muffins and this is why I’ve got a healthy berry muffin recipe for you. Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, whole wheat flour,and flax make for a seriously hearty and delicious muffin.
If you are in the market for other muffin recipes to serve as breakfast or part of breakfast let me suggest Carrot Apple Breakfast Muffin, or Zucchini Carrot Muffin. It’s fall so expect to see a lot more baking around here. I know it’s hard to imagine more baking around here but trust me fall and winter bring out the baker in me. Woo Hoo!
