whole wheat french breakfast muffinsThese are fantastic french breakfast muffins that are a little guilt free. It’s a healthier version recipe with whole wheat and oat flour,and coconut oil (click here on how to choose your coconut oil). Coconut oil is much healthier then butter or shortening and surprisingly… taste of it is not noticed in the muffin. They are perfect and delicious goodies for breakfast, brunch, snack, or a little treat with tea. They are our family favorite. Very simple and easy to make and incredibly tasty.

These healthier version of french breakfast muffins are not dry,wet, or hard, but very soft and absolutely delicious…to the part where they can be very addicting!!!  It’s hard to eat just one…you’ll want seconds..or  thirds, or maybe more.
