Healthy Iced Berry Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins

Every morning for the last 3 weeks has followed somewhat of the same pattern. I get up at 6:45, basically fall down the stairs on my quest to get some liquid gold (aka coffee) into my veins, log on to my Bloglovin (shameless plug hehe) to read as many of my fellow bloggers posts as possible, realize it’s 15 minutes before I have to leave for class/head out for my run, rush rush rush to get ready, and either miss out on breakfast alltogether or grab a bar on my way out the door. I be moving like zooooooooom.

And guess what. Come the end of my lecture, I’m either starving or gettings all sorts of sad because I missed out on a real breakfast for a lousy little granola bar. I mean, I’m a healthy-ish food blogger for cryin’ out loud. I think I can do better than a pre-packaged snack for breakfast! And these put bars to shame because amidst the gloriously juicy and plump berries and vanilla icing, there’s fiber and healthy carbs and are those trumpet I’m hearing? Unleash the celebratory breakfast muffins trumpets!

These are very dense and filling due to the whole wheat flour and oats and contain no butter and are sweetened mostly by bananas and just a leeeetle sugar in the batch. And those perfectly tart berries? Don’t even get me started. They make me… berry happy. Also, can we just ignore how bad that pun was? You guys da best.

For those of you who like a bit of extra sweetness and prettiness, you can also add on the optional vanilla glaze. And by that I mean, DO IT.

    I love your photography in these pictures! The flowers and burlap add the perfect touch.
    These look delicious AND healthy! And I agree, eating a granola bar for breakfast is such a sad missed chance to have a delicious meal!
