While some tasty morning meals come at the expense of a high calorie count, options exist for a healthier energy boost to get your day started.

These oat bran blueberry muffins are a perfect example. And if you don’t have blueberries, just stir 1 medium mashed, ripe banana (or any other fruit of choice) into the batter before baking.

For an added dietary boost, stir some ground flaxseed into the batter. Flaxseeds  are a rich source of micronutrients, dietary fiber, manganese, vitamin B1, and alpha-linolenic acid (known as ALA or omega-3).
