Did the treadmill get the best of you this morning? These muffins are high in protein, vitamin C, calcium and complex carbohydrates for a post-workout recharge.


-- Cooking spray
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup honey
2 -- eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons finely grated orange rind
1 cup chopped dried apricots (about 5 ounces)
1/3 cup granola


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Combine flour and next five ingredients (flour through salt) in a mixing bowl.
  3. Combine honey and next five ingredients (honey through orange rind) in a separate bowl. Whisk well.
  4. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into the well and stir until just combined. Gently fold in apricots.
  5. Fill muffin cups two-thirds full. Sprinkle with granola. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, until centers spring back when touched.
