French Breakfast Muffins ~a healthier version

We love muffins in our house. They make a handy and often healthy snack! For these muffins, I turned a traditional not so healthy recipe into a healthier one.

Original Recipe:

I found the original recipe for French Breakfast Muffins at

Our Changes:

  • Instead of all purpose flour, I used whole wheat flour.
  • I don't love the taste of nutmeg so I used cinnamon.
  • I didn't add any salt.
  • I cut down on the amount of sugar by almost half

Although making the changes that I did to this recipe made the muffins not turn out as light and fluffy, they were still yummy!

Family Thoughts:

As per usual when I make muffins, the kids nibbled these up in no time!


  1. I love cinnamon more than nutmeg too. Maybe a blend of the two would be good!

  2. I think these French Breakfast Muffins would be excellent to make as a Snack as well as for breakfast. I like the fact that the sugar was cut in half. Thank you for this recipe.

  3. I love to make muffins and this looks like a really good recipe. I like the changes you made to it to make it healthier. Thanks!
