Oats are a great breakfast option, but you may not always have the time to cook up oatmeal in the morning. Overnight oats are a great quick option, but those still include having to eat them with a spoon, and sometimes you need something that you can grab and eat one-handed when you’re rushing off to class, work, or any other responsibilities you have in the morning. Plus, what’s more delicious than a really good muffin?
Make one of these oat muffin recipes from our Food Monster App at the start of the week and grab them quickly in the morning so you don’t skip the most important meal of the day!
