Super-Duper Healthy Bran Muffins

Waking up at 7am for work seems to be a challenge for me every morning. I will somehow end up snoozing until 7:45 only to realize that I need to leave for work in a half hour. This time crunch would leave me with little or no time to grab anything remotely filling for breakfast, which would result with me having an empty stomach for most of the morning. If you feel the same way in the morning then have I got the perfect morning grab-and-go breakfast for you!
