Quinoa Breakfast Bowls
Start a new day with a hot bowl of sweet nuttiness. Quickly toasting sunflower seeds and quinoa in canola oil first helps their nutty flavors come through.
Muesli Muffins with Almonds and Cranberries
Whole grains, cranberries and almonds jack up the nutrient power in these muffins compared to common, cake-like ones. To round out breakfast, pair a muffin with some nuts and a piece of fruit for additional protein, energy and nutrients. Canola oil provides a moist, tender texture, plus adds vitamins E and K.
