Looking for a tasty breakfast alternative to oatmeal and egg whites that you can prepare in bulk and eat on the go?  Well, then this quick and easy recipe is for you.  I typically workout early in the morning and then eat my post-workout meal/breakfast on my long drive to work.  These muffins are a quick and convenient way to eat a balanced breakfast that meets my macros while on the go.  They are moist, hearty and not to sweet.  If you are looking for a chocolate brownie or cookie alternative these are not for you.
