One-Bowl Healthy Breakfast Muffins They'll Love


These muffins are so quick and easy, that we often make them first-thing in the morning.  As a bonus, this recipe generates very few dirty dishes. :)  The muffins are moist, yummy and super-nutritious.  We eat them with crunchy peanut butter and would never think of using anything other than chocolate chips.
