#Foodie Friday: Breakfast Muffins

I don’t know about you folks, but as far as I am concerned, I find it difficult to eat in the morning, especially sweet food. I am more of a scrambled eggs and baked beans kind of girl, and even more so since I have cut down on sugar, but I would find it a bit boring to eat that every day.
