Many of my (new) clients often struggle to eat a good breakfast. I have heard all the excuses! Slept late, can’t eat anything in the morning, I don’t have the time :0

Firstly let us understand that we all have the same 24 hours. You, me, the President, the Olympic athletes. I work 12-13 hours per day, so If I can find the time…so can you! 

Get organized, get prepared, and get serious.

This recipe is easy, delicious and a good alternative to many of the high fat, high sugar options.

Preheat your oven to 400 Degrees F and coat a muffin pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together:
  • 1 1/4 whole meal flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (they also taste great with cinnamon in place of nutmeg!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

Stir until there are no lumps.

Then stir in:
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (I use Flahavans Progress Oatlets)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup skim milk
  • 4 medium carrots, grated
  • 1 medium ripe banana, mashed

Stir until blended.

Fill 12 muffin cups with 1/4 cup each of batter. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 23 to 25 minutes.
