Breakfast muffins ready in 15 minutes from start to end. Even without an air fryer, these delicious and healthy muffins takes only about 20 minutes in the oven.

Using rye flour is a choice you can skip and use regular all purpose flour or gluten free mix if that is what you have. No stopping home baking due to silly reasons like you don’t have the flour the recipe calls for!

The recipe calls for vegetable oil – Any oil or just simply melted butter will also work.

Use the cocoa powder if you have, else skip it.
