breakfast: whole-grain berry muffins

This is the new favorite breakfast: whole-grain berry muffins. They taste great and are packed with some really healthy ingredients (flax, rolled oats, whole-wheat flour, yogurt, orange, berries). The downside is 3 Tbs of butter and 1/2 cup of brown sugar -- which really isn't too bad when divided among 12 muffins.

The recipe is from Real Simple. Frozen blackberries were on sale so I used them instead of blueberries and substituted walnuts for pecans.

*You can freeze muffins for up to one month and pop one out on-the-go! Just warm in microwave for 1-2 minutes.
