During the chaos of the morning weekday hustle, grab one of these banana nut morning glory muffins on your way out the door. They can be prepared ahead of time for a true grab and go breakfast. Plus, they are healthy and filling enough to keep you full until lunchtime.
They are only 4 Freestyle points per muffin on Weight Watchers.
As much as I love eggs, sometimes I crave a good muffin. I can’t seem to give up carbs no matter how hard I try (and I really don’t want to, if I’m being honest).
Does anyone else have that problem? I have found that as long as I eat things I love within moderation, I can still lose weight (or keep maintaining it).
Muffins are too darn tasty and easy to make to not have every once in a while.
These are a great quick and easy breakfast option, and a great grab and go breakfast. Perfect for those hectic mornings.
The carbs are worth it, and at only 4 Freestyle points a muffin, you could have 2 for a very hearty breakfast. I topped mine with a little bit of butter and ate more than I want to admit.
Let’s talk about the ingredients in these amazing muffins. The bananas are a wonderful addition to these muffins without being too “banana-tasting”.
And the nuts gave these muffins just enough crunch.
The lemon zest brings out a freshness that you don’t typically taste in a breakfast muffin. It’s a really wonderful addition to these muffins.
