Breakfasts on the go are a must in our house. Neither of us have time in the morning during the week to sit down to a bowl of cereal, so we’re always looking for good bar and muffin recipes that we can make on the weekend and eat in the car or office throughout the week. Sticking with the healthy month theme, we’ve developed a lemon blueberry muffin with heart healthy oats and wheat germ that we think you’ll like. We made this recipe a little bit differently the second time around using coconut oil and blackberries, and those turned out great as well. It’s a pretty basic muffin recipe that you can adapt to your liking. These healthy muffins will help start a busy day!
