10-Grain Healthy Breakfast Cupcakes

Pin It
It's week three of Hot Breakfast Month - my how time flies!
The theme this week is Weekend Breakfast.
10-Grain Healthy Breakfast Cupcakes

Breakfast around here almost always consists of oats, grains and fruit.
I've never been a fan of eggs, so no bacon and eggs for me!

Lazy weekend mornings are perfect for baking, so I decided to combine my love of cupcakes
and grains by making Healthy Breakfast Cupcakes.

My 10-grain breakfast cupcakes are full of healthy, whole ingredients and are
sweetened naturally with Bee Raw Maine Wild Blueberry Honey.  Shredded carrots
add fiber while the cashew butter frosting adds protein, iron, B-vitamins and zinc.

10-Grain Healthy Breakfast Cupcakes

1 1/2 C Bob's Red Mill 10-Grain Hot Cereal
1/2 C Bee Raw Maine Wild Blueberry Honey
1 egg
1/2 C plain yogurt
1 banana, mashed
3/4 C carrots, shredded
2 T coconut oil, melted
1 1/2  tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Woodstock cashew butter for frosting
fresh raspberries for garnish

In a medium mixing bowl, combine hot cereal, cinnamon, baking powder
and baking soda.  Set aside,
In a large mixing bowl add mashed banana, honey, egg, yogurt, coconut oil
and vanilla.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet, stirring with a wooden spoon
or spatula.  Add the shredded carrot; stirring until evenly distributed.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray.
Using a large cookie scoop, fill muffin tins.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until set.

Cool completely before frosting with cashew butter.
Garnish with a fresh raspberry.

Note - you can freeze Breakfast Cupcakes by wrapping them individually
with plastic wrap and storing in an air-tight container in the freezer.
I recommend frosting them after they have defrosted.

  1. Yum! I am so amazed at how versatile this cereal is. I think these muffins would be really fun at a shower brunch.
