Banana Oat Muffins are made eggless with simple ingredients like flour, lots of oats, mashed bananas and other basic baking ingredients.
Banana Oat Muffins took some trial and error to make. I wanted to make a healthy muffin with no butter or flour or eggs. So, tried it with applesauce and then yogurt but ultimately ended up using butter and flour! Go figure- right? You need the butter, it is not a ton but much needed and baking without flour always ends up being a disaster for me. I would rather eat foods that taste good in moderation than eat things that are just edible without any guilt. You can start your morning with one Banana Oat Muffin and a non fat latte for about 200 calories. Not a bad start to the day.
Banana Oat Muffins
Banana Oat Muffins are a perfect breakfast paired with a latte or healthy after school snack. Just enough banana flavor and lots of oats to keep you full. Try to sprinkle some mini chocolate chips on top before cooking too for your daily chocolate fix! My kids love these as a snack popped in the microwave for 10 seconds and with a little butter or peanut butter on top.
Oats are a gluten-free, whole-grain food that can play a big role in a healthy diet. Oats contain loads of fiber, vitamins and minerals that aid in controlling blood sugar, keep you regular and may even help aid in weight loss.
