The Kinda-Sorta and the Not So Much

I just
love
muffins for breakfast - 
past tense
LOVED
muffins for breakfast-
I mean
you
go to
Starbucks

(or Petit  Soleil)

and
get
one
of their
amazing
 muffins
and
Pumpkin Latte
and
you
are
over the top
of your
fat - sugar- calorie
allotment
for the day


BUZZ KILL!

I found
this
 recipe
for 
Granola Muffins
and
made
one
batch 
kinda sorta healthy

I replaced
the butter with coconut oil
the brown sugar with coconut sugar
the regular granola with Bear Naked Fit Granola
and white flour with whole wheat flour

I threw
in a few 
blueberries and raspberries
that I
had
to use up
