Are you tired of having the same breakfast day after day? Then these Blueberry Muffins should be on your to make list. Made with greek yogurt and bursting with juicy blueberries, these muffins are not only delicious, but approximately 185 calories.
Breakfast can be a struggle at our home sometimes. There are so many pieces of toast and cereal you can eat until you are pulling your hair out. My poor husband gets sick of the same breakfast over and over, so I’m constantly trying to come up new breakfast ideas.
Tuesday thru Saturday, our morning breakfast needs to be quick and able to warm up. There are only so many choices to pick from. Can you imagine microwaving pancakes? Yum…rubbery pancakes will be sure to get you through your day. I think not!
Our normal breakfast menu goes something like this, baked oatmeal, frozen waffles, hard-boiled eggs, egg salad sandwich, and sometimes if we have an extra 10 minutes we’ll have some cereal. Mornings are pure craziness and sometimes you need to grab and go.
Because I want some different ideas, doesn’t mean I want them to have 1,000 calories. I’m trying to get into shape here people. I need something that will be under my 300 calorie budget, which has to include my 2 cups of coffee too. If you’ve ever counted calories then you can totally relate to me. If you haven’t, then you’re super-duper lucky and I envy you. 🙂
These muffins are really quick to throw together and are only approximately 185 calories. Yes, I said 185 calories. That’s like a dream come true, right? I wanted these babies to be under 200 calories and have a moist juicy flavor. I love baking with blueberries. They’re such an easy fruit to bake with and never lose their great texture and taste.
I also added some greek yogurt to give them a little extra umph and moisture. These muffins will be sure to get you though your day and you won’t have to worry what to eat for lunch because you’ll have plenty of calories left over. Hope you all enjoy them as much as we do! 🙂
