Healthy Banana Oat Muffins

Who loves muffins?  Me!!  And my kids.  Those kids are muffin junkies!  I have made a few different recipes for them with no real hits until  I stumbled across this one.  It was easy, it's pretty clean, and they have been gobbling them up.  I may have had one or two myself and FYI, they're extra tasty warmed up with a little bit of butter!

Recipe via

2.5 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup greek yogurt
2 eggs
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 TBSP ground flax seed
1 tsp vanilla
2 over ripe bananas

- Preheat oven to 375
- Pulse oats in a food processor until close to a flour like consistency
- Either add to your food processor or in a strong blender (i.e. Vitamix) add the remaining ingredients.  Blend until smooth.
- I added some mini chocolate chips to make it kid-friendly.
- Divide batter among 12 greased cupcake tins or liners and bake for 18-20 minutes.

My kids have been eating these every morning (that's RARE!) They're minimally processed and much better than boxed muffins.  And my kids eat them.  They're gluten free and low fat.  My kids eat them.  Did I already say that?!

Happy baking!
