These muffins are not only delicious, but they’re really a great way to start your morning, or have as a high energy snack. They are made with whole wheat flour, almond meal/flour, walnuts, Chia seeds, oatmeal and cranberries. The almond meal and Chia seeds are both high in protein, fiber and make the muffins moist. They were so popular in our house this weekend, we had to make two batches. Enjoy-these are guilt free!

Happy Baking,
