Stuck for breakfast ideas? Breakfast is one of the harder meals to prepare while on a low-sugar diet plan, mainly because the majority of store-bought cereals and breads are full of added sugars. There are more than 50 names for sugar, and you might find anywhere between one and five of those names on your cereal’s ingredient list.
These filling muffins are made from energizing buckwheat groats and a tasty combination of nuts and seeds. They contain no added sugar, and the tasty mix of fats and protein will give you an energy-filled start to your day. Enjoy!
