If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you probably already know that I have a hard time with breakfast.
It’s not so much that I dislike breakfast food, but I just don’t generally feel like eating in the mornings! I generally get up between 6:00 – 6:30, but do not end up eating breakfast until around 9:00 am.
I drink my coffee as soon as I get up, and I usually add collagen to my coffee, so at least I have a bit of protein as soon as I wake up.
Then three hours later, I’m finally ready for breakfast! But then, more often than not, I can’t decide what to have for breakfast.
I’m telling you, I’m the world’s worst planner when it comes to food! Isn’t that horrid? I KNOW I need to plan better, and I generally have good intentions to do so, but unfortunately I’m still stuck in the same rut.
As a Trim Healthy Mama, there are SO many breakfast options out there! And it doesn’t have to be bacon and eggs every day (thought there is nothing wrong with bacon and eggs)!
First I have to choose what fuel I want for breakfast, which usually ends up being an E fuel (healthy carb source). I find that breakfast is the easiest time of day for me to eat my E’s.
But there are plenty of S breakfast options as well! If you would like some more breakfast ideas, check out my Easy Breakfast Ideas for Trim Healthy Mamas!

These muffins were born out of the idea to have a quick, grab-and-go breakfast option. I really made them for myself, and I wasn’t counting on my family loving them and devouring them as soon as I made them!
I’ve made them several times, and they have disappeared quickly each time.
With just the right hint of cinnamon and sweetness, these Healthy Banana Muffins are so easy to make. Simply throw all the ingredients in your blender!
Yes, it is truly that easy! Place all the ingredients in your blender, blend well, then pour into your prepared baking tins!
I added an erythritol/cinnamon topping to the tops before baking to give a bit more flavor.
I have not tried freezing them yet, but I think they would also freeze well. It would be a great idea to make up a double batch of these and freeze them. Then you would have a healthy breakfast or snack ready to go at all times (simply defrost in your microwave).
Also, a quick note about the texture. They are very dense, not light and fluffy. They also tend to be a little wet when they are still warm. But I think they are much better after they have completely cooled.

- 2 Tablespoons Erythritol
- ½ Teaspoon Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350.
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until well combined.
Spray 12 muffin cup liners lightly with coconut oil spray and place in muffin tin.
Pour muffin batter into prepared muffin tins.
In a small bowl, mix the erythritol and cinnamon together.
Sprinkle approximately ½ teaspoon of the cinnamon mixture over the top of each muffin.
Bake for 35 minutes.
For best results, allow to cool completely before eating.
To make this a solid E fuel (since there are only 10 carbs in each muffin), you can eat 3 muffins, and add some protein to the side. (I like to have protein powder in almond milk, or some collagen coffee.)
