Muffin Bites

These bite size muffins are a deliciously healthy fast food for breakfast on the run, or as a quick snack when you have those craving moments. Packed full of fiber, protein and "good" carbs.

1 Cup Boiling water
1 Cup of rolled oats..not instant or quick cook oatmeal
Mix these and set aside.

1 Cup Canola Oil
1 Cup Honey or Agave Syrup
2 Cups fresh buttermilk or skim milk (your choice)
5 Cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 Cup Oat bran
1/2 Cup ground flax seeds
1 1/2 Cup wheat bran
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
2 Teaspoons Salt
3 Teaspoons Vanilla
3 whole eggs or 6 egg whites (may use egg substitute)
1 1/2 Cups grated Zucchini
1 1/2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
1 Cup Chopped walnuts or pecans

Mix all wet ingredients in a large bowl. Add all dry ingredients and hand stir together
until well blended with a whisk. Do not over mix as they will become tough.

Fill mini muffin tins 3/4 full, I used a # 40 scoop. Bake at 375 F. for 8-10 minutes, until the
muffins spring back when lightly touched or a tooth pick comes out clean.
Serving size is 3 mini muffins with 15 g Carbs and 5 g fiber.

Makes about 8 dozen mini muffins. Store in your freezer for ready to go breakfast!

Love the stats on these muffins! I once bought a lemon poppy seed muffin at a bakery, I estimated that it had about 40 grams of carbs - took it home, weighed it and then looked it up - the whole thing was 90 carbs!

Definitely putting this on the list to make - thanks for sharing!
