Fruit and Oats Breakfast Muffins with a Fruit Yogurt Glaze
Easy peasy, freezer-friendly Breakfast Muffins is my new go-to power breakfast idea. It consists of a light and fluffy breakfast muffin; that includes fruit, oats and Nutriday Plain Low Fat Yogurt. Top it off with a generous amount of Nutriday Fruit Cocktail Yogurt Glaze, and you have a nutritious breakfast that can even brighten up lunchboxes.

- 115gr (1⁄2 cup) softened butter
