As some of you know, I am always on the hunt for a breakfast food for Bunny, one that she might look forward to eating first thing in the morning. She never really eats much early in the am. A glass of water and a few grapes or strawberries are her to go-to. I know, that’s nothing. How she gets to lunch without fainting from hunger is beyond me.
At times she will nibble on a piece of toast, or a bagel with cream cheese. But that’s rare. Some people just don’t feel like food first thing in the morning. I certainly am not one of them. Maybe that’s why I feel the need to fill her up, because if I feel that hungry, certainly she must too?
These Gluten Free Vegan Breakfast Muffins I thought would be the magic bullet. Packed with tons of nuts, seeds and some raisins, even a few small bites could sustain her throughout the morning. Good thinking huh? I could even send them along with her in the morning to nibble on later.
Everyone here just loved them.
Except, of course Bunny.
So if you are a few grapes and sip of water kind of morning person, these might not be for you. For the rest of us out there, they are quite simply perfect little morning food.
