Perfect Muesli Muffins_1

Not sure about you, but I love muffins. However, recently I jut can’t find any that would look appetizing – all this icing, heavy toppings, sugar sprinkles or chocolate chips just puts me off. Not only because of calories, but also because of a taste – I would like to enjoy the actual muffin and not feel like every bite is a mouthful of sugar. The remedy is quite simple and waiting… at home! Why not bake muffins that you can enjoy and feel confident of how much sugar (none) and fat (two spoons) are on the ingredient list? I do regularly and can state they make perfect breakfast or a lunchtime snack. Have I mentioned that it takes 1o minutes to prepare…?
