Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, in my opinion. In my experience, if I eat well in the morning, I make better decision throughout the day. Fortunately, there are many options to add variety to your menu, so there's no excuse.
Last week I decided to try something new and my kids loved it. I've always enjoyed carrot cake and I thought it would be a good idea to create some whole-wheat muffins to give us fiber, but include the delicious flavor of this popular pastry; it also gives us a chance to add vegetables in a fun way. Because these muffins are more breakfast than dessert, I eliminated as much of the sugar as possible.
The end result was soft, moist and subtly sweet muffins. I recommend trying them with a cup of yogurt or smoothie. They're even great alone with a bit of whipped cream.
