Hey Everybody! So who doesn’t like muffins. I am sure we all eat them from time to time or have in the past, but what we don’t need is all those extra calories. Many times muffins are easy to eat and grab while on the go, but most of the muffins are packaged with lots of sugar and fat!! This is a recipe that I came across the other day and figured it was a good one to try for the family. I have two kids and you know how it can be to get them to eat something new or healthier. These muffins are a great snack idea and also good for breakfast on the go!!!!!
My kids actually enjoyed them!! I believe that there are always ways to make something that is usually not so healthy, healthier. Only thing you need to do is be creative and explore with recipes or just try something new!!! My motto, “small steps equals big change”. Take small steps to being healthier and see what changes you will see.
Let’s get to the recipe:
- 1 cup mashed bananas (2-3 large)
- 2 lightly beaten eggs
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 cup milk
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 tsp real vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups old fashion oats
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place bananas, eggs, honey, milk, peanut butter and vanilla in blender or in bowl and use hand mixer and puree until smooth. (I used my mixer). Add oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix until smooth. (can use a blender also) Line 12 muffins tins with liners.
Bake in oven for 30-40 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center.
Take out and enjoy!!!!
