Yesterday was National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day. So naturally I decided that I should bake. I had to celebrate somehow right? I have guests staying at my house this week, so I wanted to make sure breakfast was a no brainer. I also have a million deadlines this week and baking seems to calm me in some weird way.
I love these little blackberry breakfast bites because they are easy to make, low in calories, and low in sodium. And they are not super sweet, so don’t expect a sugar bomb. I also prefer using whole wheat white flour because it doesn’t make my baked foods taste like cardboard.
Who wants to eat cardboard? Gross.
And bonus…each muffin has about a gram of fiber. I feel like fiber is the red headed stepchild of the nutrition world. It actually plays a really important role in our health! It serves as the scrub brush for our gut and can help prevent heart disease and certain types of cancer. <—Knowledge bomb right there. Boom.
Now I can already hear you fussing at me about the size of these things.
I know, I know….
They are small and you might want to eat 10, but I promise after 3 or 4 you will have your fix. And at only 55 calories each, you can enjoy 3 or 4 and not feel guilty about it.
But please remember to breathe in between bites. I will not be held responsible for blackberry overload.
Are you still with me? Good. I was worried about you.
By the way, it’s finally starting to warm up here in Nebraska. Monday it hit 78 degrees but then Tuesday night it was snowing again. SNOWING. There is no place like Nebraska.
And there is no better combo than milk with muffins.
Ok, maybe milk & cookies… but this is a close second!
