Muffins are my ultimate favorite grab and go breakfast. They're filling and very portable. They also freeze well so you can make them ahead for a journey. I often bring them along on trips as a breakfast option, because even if I'm staying at a hotel or B & B, there's rarely any breakfast available that I'm able to eat. I made these initially to use some amazing nutrient dense Grain Free flours(i.e sea buckthorn flour, poppyseed flour) from Hungary, www.graboila.de. If you're in Europe and have easier access to these flours, I used 1/4 cup (approx 25 grams) of milkseed thistle flour and 1/4 cup poppyseed flour in these muffins as part of the total of 1.5 cups of flour called for in the recipe.
