KJ’s Fabulous Fiber-Filled Muffins
This is an easy way to start off your day and be well on your way to getting at
least 25 grams of fiber in your daily diet.
In addition to the fiber, these muffins are low in fat and high in antioxidants,
complex carbohydrate and a splattering of nutrients.
I personally eat one of these for breakfast or snack almost everyday.

•1 large egg or 1/4 cup egg substitute
•1/2 cup non-fat skim milk or soy milk
