Breakfast! I like to make hearty, nutritious breakfasts for my guys. Bacon is at the top of their breakfast favorites list, but cooking enough for everyone, can be time consuming. Some mornings I have plenty of time, but other (most!) mornings are too rushed.

These moist, delicious muffins are filled with whole grain flour, applesauce, nuts, carrots and Craisins (or raisins), which means that they are super healthy, too!

Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Here are the Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Rolls that we’re having for breakfast in the morning! The rolls start off as a healthy, whole wheat dough (sweetened with honey), and are then topped with wholesome ingredients like apples, creamy butter and succanat. Delicious!
