Here’s a basic chocolate muffin, but with whole grain goodness. Filled with extra fiber, this is one muffin that you can give your kids for breakfast with little guilt attached. Especially for high school kids who are always running out the door, here is something you can put in their hand as they fly past you.

By baking them in into mini and micro-mini muffins, it’s also a great way to exercise portion control for the adults in the house who want a slightly sweet treat.
