Now every cupcake lover can even enjoy a healthy breakfast by baking a batch of these healthy breakfast Kiwi Blackberry Breakfast Cupcakes!

Ingredients: 

2 kiwi fruit's
2 cup of milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup od apple sauce
2 cups of fine oatmeal 
1/4 cup of your favorite wheat breakfast cereal
2 cups wheat  flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
5 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 cups of fresh blackberries

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

Prepare the fruit (kiwi's) by cutting off both ends to start peeling the fuzzy skin off the rest. Put your peeled kiwi-fruit into your mixer and add milk. Turn the mixer on medium-speed and for three to four minutes or until completely mixed.  Once finished with the mixing add eggs, applesauce and oatmeal (Tip: run oatmeal through a food processor for about 12 seconds for a smoother texture cupcake). Ok so moving on allow the mixture stand for 16 minutes until it is completely moist. Then begin to add all the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl. Soak this mixture for an additional 12 minutes. Once mixture is soaked begin to stir in the berries.  Scoop the batter into a paper lined muffin tin and bake for about 19 minutes.  Test cake with a toothpick and once it removes clean from the center of the cupcake they are done. Pull them from the oven and let sit in the pan for 15 min and remove to a bakers cooling rack. When cupcakes are completely cool you can begin frosting them.
