What is your favorite breakfast to serve to all of the visiting holiday company? I looooove to make something with a touch of holiday flavor, that my company can’t just find everywhere else. My second requirement is that anything that comes out of my kitchen needs to be nourishing for the person who walks in. This time of year, there are plenty of unhealthy treats, so I love the challenge of creating something nutritious that will surprise everyone with how delicious it is!!! Weaving in a little holiday flavor is a must…it’s like magic…
The common denominator between these 3 delicious muffins is: Oikos® Triple Zero Vanilla Greek Yogurt. It has a creamy texture, sweetness from the stevia, and is an excellent source of protein. It can go right into the muffin batter to help keep it moist and replace some of the oil. We tend to keep the large container around to create an easy snack for myself and my kids, so it is a regular staple in our refrigerator. And, we are usually making an oat-based or almond-flour muffin recipe at least once a week!
Hot Cocoa Muffins are made with almond flour, so they are gluten-free (for those who need it), high in healthy fats, and higher in protein. Since they are made with almonds, they will be dense enough to keep you full for the rest of the morning. If holiday hot cocoa married a muffin, this would be it! A delicious holiday breakfast…
Greek Yogurt & Chocolate Chip Oat Muffins
This is my go-to muffin to create in a pinch, because the whole thing can be done in a blender. To change it up a bit of the holidays, I’ll add a dash of cinnamon or a sprinkle of nutmeg. The oats fill you up- and the yogurt provides you with good nutrition!
Gluten-Free Pumpkin Mini Muffins
These taste like a little bite of pumpkin pie! (And did you realize National Pumpkin Pie Day isn’t until December 25??? Crazy, huh?) Seriously, I have been getting rave reviews over these goodies!
I know that when cooking for the holidays, every little bit helps! So here is a coupon code for you to try the Oikos® Triple Zero™ Vanilla Greek Yogurt – and let me know what you think about the recipes! I would love to stay in touch with you this season on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram. Tag me in what you make!
