These are super healthy, mildly sweet but still delicious. And the apples keep ‘em moist.

Question: Muffins – breakfast or snack food?


  1. says

    both! but most of the muffins that are store-bought are so sugary their more of a snack food. If I make it myself I can usually pass it as nutritious enough for breakfast, this one definitely passes the breakfast test

    Yummy looking muffins!
    Where did you find that “recipe” creation program where you can type in the names of the ingredients and the program calculates the nutritional information?
    Thank you!

    I have an unfortunate muffin addiction that I cannot kick so for me it’s breakfast, every day. But really, they should be a sometimes kind of snack. These look yummy and like something you could actually eat more regularly

    Such a simple and easy recipe…can’t wait to try these! The only problem is…when I make muffins I can’t stop! I’ll eat them for breakfast, snack, lunch or dinner!

    Both though I usually “reserve” them for weekend brekkies – it’s kinda my treat coz weekday brekkies’ are toast or crackers with PB. I like them for afternoon snacks – ok, no “rules” for this one. :)

    I can’t follow a recipe to save my life, but used this for inspiration to use up some ingredients going bad. Lesson learned – steel cut oats do not equal instant oats (the taste was amazing, the texture was just a little off, but with some extra sunbutter slathered on it, it was still just fine :D).
