This right here is the breakfast of champions.
Just look at those muffins; the crisp oat crumble, the golden color, the fluffy texture. Tell me you don’t wish you were shoving one of those into your mouth right about now. It’s okay, I want one too.
Cinnamon Crumble Muffins – You’ll Find The Easy Instructions Here!
But the best part? These muffins are pretty darn healthy. They’re made with whole wheat flour, sweetened with turbinado sugar and honey, and the only fat comes from coconut oil, an oil that both tastes delicious and has tons of health benefits. Oh yeah, and there’s a 3/4 cup of California buttermilk in these guys too. More on that later.
Although I’ve never been a huge milk drinker, I do love me some yogurt and the occasional smoothie. Things like yogurt parfaits and dairy smoothies are great ways to add protein and calcium to your diet. And you know what else can benefit your diet? Muffins!
I opted to use buttermilk in these muffins because I love the texture it lends to baked goods. It makes them light and fluffy without the addition of buckets of butter or oil, and that’s always a plus in my book. I also used a whole lot of cinnamon and coconut oil. Both ingredients help make these muffins super duper delicious.
So really guys, get that protein into your diet in an awesome way!
