Millet and Oat Muffins #vegan

I really hate to add to your To-Do list for the weekend, but a batch of these muffins would be a good idea.

Or better yet, with a piece of fruit and slathered with nut butter they are a quick and compact little breakfast.

Lunch box food: Blueberry Citrus Loaf {vegan}

Lunch box food: Blueberry Citrus Loaf {vegan}

The bread gets a good amount of sweetness (and flavour) from the orange juice, blueberries and dried cranberries. It is low in fat, no saturated fat, completely vegan and uses whole wheat flour. I say this is a win-win.
