They say that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If that's the case, shouldn't it be the healthiest as well? This is the meal that starts everything off for you each day. It's the meal that gets you started for all the activities, events, and stress that you are about to take on. Shouldn't you start it off with something other than doughnuts or a bowl of cereal?
So how can we make breakfast not only healthy, but also warm, delicious, as well as something we can take with us as we go? First, you need the right ingredients. Don't worry, we've got you covered!
Say hello to 3 amazing flours from Honeyville, now available in smaller packaging, our Comet Rice Flour, Oat Flour, and Barley Flour. Not only are these flours finely ground from only the freshest whole grains, they're the base of an over-the-top breakfast muffin that will completely knock your socks off! To top it all off, the whole thing is baked in an easy-to-carry, easy-to-store mason jelly jar. Grab-and-go has never been so healthy! Grab a spoon, it's time to make Breakfast Muffins in a Jar!
1 cup Honeyville Oat Flour
1/2 cup Honeyville Barley Flour
1/2 cup Honeyville Comet Rice Flour
2 Tbsp Raw Organic Chia Seeds (Ground)
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt
3 Tbsp Honeyville Buttermilk Powder + 1 cup Water
1/2 cup Water
2 tsp Vanilla
1/3 cup Raw Honey
2 cups Greek Yogurt
Yields: 4-5 Muffins in a Jar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine oat flour, barley flour, rice flour, ground chia seeds, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, and mix together until fully combined.
In a medium bowl, whisk together reconstituted buttermilk, water, vanilla, and honey.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until a thick batter forms. Let sit for 15-20 minutes.
Pour batter into individual jars. Only fill jars about half-way, as these muffins will fluff up during bake time.
Place in oven and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Remove and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.
While muffins are cooling, whisk your yogurt with an electric hand mixer, just to make it light, airy, and fluffy.
Place a dollop on top of the muffin, they top with your favorite freeze dried fruit.
These muffins are super moist, delicious, and perfect for those of us looking for a quick, but healthy, meal. Because these are baked in a jar, you can whip these bad boys up Sunday night, screw the lids on top, then store in the refrigerator for the rest of the week. That way, you literally can simply grab them each morning on your way out the door. The delicious aroma and taste of these muffins will pull you in each time, and, because we only use honey and cinnamon as sweeteners, you don't have to worry about all that extra sugar.
If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, why not enjoy it with these Healthy Breakfast Muffins in a Jar?
