One of the things we've found is that having meals on hand so that thought (or work) isn't required helps a lot. We each have recipes for a breakfast muffin, and make a batch, freeze them, and they're ready to go each morning.
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup wheat bran
1 cup oat bran
1 cup rolled oats
1 T baking powder
2 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
1 t cardamom
1 t nutmeg (or spices of your choice)
2 over ripe bananas
1 cup applesauce (or persimmon pulp if I have it)
1 individual cup of vanilla yogurt (I really like Oikos Vanilla and toasted Coconut)
1 - 6 oz can crushed pineapple
The good stuff *these things area all interchangeable or can be replaced with other stuff*:
1 cup granola
1 cup coconut (unsweetened if I'm behaving)
1 cup (or more) broken walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/8 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 T dark unsweetened cocoa
NOTE: you need to add at least 3 cups of additives.
Set oven to 400 degrees
Line muffin tins
I usually make up several batches of the dry and "good stuff" all mixed up and in the freezer.
Mix up all the wet ingredients and blend. An immersion blender is perfect.
Add dry ingredients and mix well.
