Recipe of the Month: Fruit & Nut Oatmeal Muffin Cups
July 26, 2019 | by Kourtney Gordon, Registered Dietitian

These oatmeal muffin cups are a ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ option as part of an on-the-go breakfast or a pre-workout snack.

Muffins can be made ahead and frozen and thawed later. Experiment with gluten-free or dairy-free options to meet your specific dietary needs.

This recipe is an excellent source of fibre!
