    I make these with 2 eggs in place of the yogurt for added protein and they are packed with veggies, superfoods, and protein! And delicious!

      Thanks for sharing this, Eva! I LOVE these muffins and make them ALL THE TIME. <3

    The sweet potato muffins from GP are really good! But these are my favorite healthy muffins, hands down: http://www.shutterbean.com/2012/1000-seed-banana-date-muffins/

    Bahaha…this made me laugh. I’ve been in a self imposed breakfast rut for a couple of years now. Every morning (and I mean every morning) I have a cup of tea, three freshly hard boiled egg whites and a banana that I share with my Great Dane.

    It’s mechanical, but I love it, and my tummy is always happy.

    I am the same way! The past few weeks I’ve been making overnight oats which is such a time saver! I just do 1/4 cup old fashioned oats, 1 tsp chia seeds, 1/4 cup almond milk, a heaping spoon or two of plain nonfat Greek yogurt, a tbsp of honey and 1/2 cup or so of frozen mixed berries. I mix all the ingredients in a coffee mug which is easy to grab and go. I cover it with plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge overnight. It’s super yummy and not oatmealy at all–I totally got burnt out on oatmeal too and actually started making this recipe to finish off a massive container of oats I’d bought before I got sick of oatmeal! Good luck!

    I actually did a post on healthy and quick breakfast options on my blog ( http://poorgirlrichlifeblog.com ). Avocado toast and gluten-free coconut pancakes (you can make the night before and reheat) are my two favs lately. I also love light cream cheese and lox on whole-grain toast which takes like two minutes to make. Overnight oats are great too because you change up the flavors (cinnamon + maple and blueberry + lemon are my favs), and though it’s similar to oatmeal it tastes different enough and it’s served cold which is AMAZING on a hot morning! Hope this helps :-)

      Forgot to put the direct link to that breakfast posts mentioned above:


  6. Kelby Monday, April 28, 2014 at 8:35 am

    Oh those Gwyneth Paltrow muffins look like a great recipe! The sweet potato will fill you up and the spice power will give it a kick of taste. I usually grab a greek yogurt before I’m off for the day. I’m partial to one with crunchy add-ins like oats or almond slivers. Good luck on your muffin recipe hunt! xo Kelby

    I, too suffer from migraines and can’t skip breakfast. I used to eat muffins and carb-rich breakfasts, but switched to a high protein/fiber smoothie over a year ago and it has been so helpful! I don’t get hungry until lunch, which is good because hunger triggers migraines for me.

    Speaking of migraines, I am taking an all-natural supplement for my migraines that WORKS! I actually wrote a post about it today!


    Here is the smoothie that I have almost every morning: http://www.savorhomeblog.com/2013/06/my-favorite-breakfast-smoothie.html

  8. Evelyn Monday, April 28, 2014 at 8:58 am

    Eggs are not out of the question :) You could make hardboiled eggs beforehand, or even better, make a frittata. Its delish and you could put any veggies in there. You can make it in muffin tins or as a whole frittata.

    Also – try acorn squash with coconut milk (if you’re dairy free) + berries, nuts, almond butter, any toppings!

  9. s Monday, April 28, 2014 at 9:09 am

    these are great! http://paleomg.com/apple-cinnamon-muffins/

  10. Lyn Monday, April 28, 2014 at 9:09 am

    I guess I’m confused. Didn’t you just post a great-looking muffin recipe a few days ago?

  11. Jennifer Monday, April 28, 2014 at 9:48 am

    My whole family loves these! No oil or butter, a small amount of brown sugar and molasses to sweeten them. Oats and flax seed give them substance. We like them just slightly undercooked. They are incredibly moist and delish!

  12. Victoria Monday, April 28, 2014 at 10:01 am

    I am a big fan of making a quick breakfast in the morning or something I can prep the night before and just grab and go the next day! Yummy Mummy Kitchen is a food blog I follow for food inspiration and most her breakfasts are pretty healthy or at least can be healthy! http://www.yummymummykitchen.com/search/label/Breakfast

  13. Ali Monday, April 28, 2014 at 10:16 am

    I buy pre-hard boiled eggs from the regular grocery store or Trader Joes! I have one of those (remove the yolk) with salt and then a piece of whole wheat toast with peanut butter (I love White Chocolate Wonderful)– it’s so quick… I can eat it at home while getting ready or bring with me and eat at my desk (would prob be easy for the car too if that works for you!)

    Lots of protein is the key I’ve found :) Also, if buying pre-hard boiled eggs weirds you out (some people think it’s gross or strange– not me :)) you could just boil a batch on sunday nights too… but I really love not having to peel them!

  14. gina Monday, April 28, 2014 at 10:28 am

    Banana and a Luna bar is one of my go to’s! or toast and pb is whole grains and protein!

  15. Annie Thompson Monday, April 28, 2014 at 10:42 am

    I totally hear you! I grew up eating a bowl of cereal every morning and it is still what I want to eat but an hour later my energy is in the dump as is my appetite. Try an egg in a wrap if you like that–I make one for my husband every morning for his breakfast in the car. Or if you can make these the night before, they stay for a couple of days and they are paleo. They are really yummy and you can take a few for breakfast. Here is the recipe: http://www.easypaleo.com/2012/01/23/my-favorite-egg-muffins/
    They are from Paleo Comfort Foods. Good luck! I can’t wait to try out some of these other recipes in the comments section!

    Look for a morning glory muffin recipe! They usually have carrot, maybe a dried berry, nuts and are pretty filling/relatively healthy :) I usually eat half a bagel and some grapefruit once I’m at my desk at work (today I’m eating cake I made yesterday….oops)

  17. Emily Monday, April 28, 2014 at 11:20 am

    Those Sweet Potato Five Spice Muffins look amazing! I actually write meal plans for busy people who need good on-the-go breakfast options, and I have some great muffin recipes! My Morning Glory Muffins are posted in the Recipes section, and I also have some Secret Ingredient Granola Muffins that have 93 grams of protein in 20–22 muffins. Since I’m such a big fan of eggs I also have lots of quick and make-ahead ways to eat eggs. Would love to share them with you and your readers.

    1. Georgia Monday, April 28, 2014 at 12:56 pm

      She is absolutely amazing. Breakfast will never be the same!

  18. Hanna Monday, April 28, 2014 at 12:34 pm

    These are AMAZING!

  19. Carly Monday, April 28, 2014 at 12:56 pm

    Avocado on Ezekiel bread with a hard boiled egg sliced on top. Perfect breakfast, and fast!

    1. Jill Monday, April 28, 2014 at 1:55 pm

      This is what I was going to suggest. So filling! Like a healthy egg mc muffin…

  20. kb Monday, April 28, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    homemade granola bars. sub other kinds of dried fruit if you want. they keep longer than muffins. make these and don’t look back.


  21. Mills Monday, April 28, 2014 at 1:28 pm

    I know you said you overdosed on oatmeal but this muffin recipe is made with leftover oatmeal and it’s a total keeper…and no one says you have to eat oatmeal to have left over oatmeal.


  22. Emily Monday, April 28, 2014 at 1:36 pm

    Loving this, because breakfast is always the hardest meal for me!


  23. Shelbi Monday, April 28, 2014 at 1:50 pm

    I love this! I think we all pretend to be ‘that girl’ that reads her paper, drinks her oj and starts the day off like a princess. But we all know that breakfast is that kind of thing that is only loved when it is prepared. I have this same problem!

    I this website and this meal, they always have great options!

    Be sure to stop by on Wednesday’s for fun recipes!

    I am not at all a breakfast person and am usually fine getting through lunch because I tend to stay at the office later and come in later so late dinners and early(ish) lunches save me. But lately I’ve had 6 and 7 am calls. Not for the night owl. What I’ve found to be the most satisfying is something I can pack the night before with minimal effort and just eat at my desk. Enter leftovers. Usually the base is a grain (farro, barley, rice) and then I mix in whatever vegetables we had for dinner the night before (asparagus, brocoli rabe, peas, spinach, etc.), maybe some chopped roasted chicken or other leftover meat, and a vinaigrette with garlic, fresh herbs, good olive oil, and sherry vinegar and/or some cheese. It sounds like a strange hodgepodge (and it is) but it’s always changing and deeply satisfying if you’re ok with savory breakfast.

  25. Ashley Monday, April 28, 2014 at 3:05 pm

    I’m a huge fan of hardboiled eggs and toast with PB. Filling and fast!!

  26. Auburn Monday, April 28, 2014 at 3:57 pm

    Others have suggested these, but egg muffins are my favorite. Just scramble some eggs with S&P and pour into a non-stick muffin tin. You can get adventurous with the add-ins by putting anything into the muffin cups and THEN adding the eggs. Can’t go wrong–spinach, halved cherry tomatoes, diced ham, cheese, etc. And flavor up your egg mix if you want with sriacha or coconut aminos. I bake them in the evening and then, once cool, put them in a tupperware in the fridge. As I run out the door in the mornings, I heat up a few for like 20 seconds and wrap them in a napkin to eat on the run.

    Also, I’m still on oatmeal (the plain instant kind) but have made it fresh by my add-ins–my current favorite (still going strong after a few months) is a generous heap of full fat plain greek yogurt (you need the fat to make it filling, in my opinion), berries, some ground flax seed, a few almonds and some honey or Stevia for a little sweetness. Yes, it’s caloric, but super healthy and it keeps me full for a good five hours.

  27. Gabriela Monday, April 28, 2014 at 4:10 pm

    This sounds SUPER weird and it’s not a muffin, but I love protein “cookie dough,” which I found on a fitness blog. Just a scoop of protein powder (casein or vegan Sun Warrior are my favorites) mixed with 1/3 cup of raw oats, a dollop of nut butter and a splash of water to get things mixed up. I usually add some fruit on top, too. Easy to make and tastes ridiculously delicious, I swear!

  28. Shannon Hood Monday, April 28, 2014 at 5:40 pm


    This totally fits the bill! Eggs! Protien! Super fast just pop-in-the-microwave-and-run! So you do have to make them in advance, but once you’ve made a batch you have 12, which should last you a week. So. tasty as well. I love these and make them quite a lot.

    Do let us know what you end up trying/loving! I’d love to hear all about it.

  29. Marissa Monday, April 28, 2014 at 8:15 pm

    These pumpkin muffins are DELISH, and gluten free too!


  30. Kodi Monday, April 28, 2014 at 9:35 pm

    Against All Grain has great non-cereal breakfast options, including a few different kinds of muffins:
    Hope you find something that works for you!

  31. Michelle B Monday, April 28, 2014 at 10:38 pm

    Avocado toast is my favorite! Today I made some with gluten-free Udi’s bread, mashed some avocado with red pepper flakes, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and spread the avo on the toast. It’s delicious!

  32. Bradley Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 2:26 pm

    Try KEFIR – its my current go to breakfast “necessity!” I recommend the Lifeway brand, and be sure its flavored. If I’m on the run, I just have a glass of kefir. Otherwise, I make a kefir bowl with fresh fruit and KIND granola. Kefir is VERY healthy for you!

  33. Lauren E. Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 2:47 pm

    Not exactly a muffin, but I make these bars for my boyfriend (I’m more of a cereal girl myself) and he’s been eating them for years. They are SUPER healthy, and you can basically make them as unhealthy as you like (i.e. he likes his with chocolate chips, craisins, and peanut butter, but when I make them for myself I use pureed pumpkin, cinnamon, and honey). http://ohsheglows.com/2012/01/20/on-the-glow-basic-oatmeal-squares/

  34. Peyton Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 9:08 pm

    Haven’t tried these yet but found them on pinterest and thought of you! They look super good! http://www.eatliverun.com/soft-baked-banana-breakfast-cookies/

  35. Danielle Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    Hi Sally,
    I read this post the other day and it kind of stuck with me since I get into the same rut. An awesome recipe for Chia Seed Pudding landed in my inbox this AM via R29 and I wanted to share with you: http://www.refinery29.com/food52/38?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=post

    Sounds super yummy. Good luck!
    xo, Danielle

  36. Amanda Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    I love these quinoa muffins! They’re delicious, easy to make, high in protein and are great for using up leftover quinoa: http://ohdearbakery.com/2013/01/11/small-batch-quinoa-muffins/

  37. Laura B Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 11:37 am

    I love these banana-apple-bran muffins. Sweetened with honey and fruit, they’re probably not high protein but maybe you could tweak it with different flour?
