Oatmeal Muffins - Making it a healthy treat!!!
In my experience, healthy and gluten free treats are usually pretty boring and somewhat tasteless too! Today my daughter wanted me to trust her and give her recipe a try... And wow! These are wonderful :)
These muffins are amazing, simple and a totally guilt free treat that you, your kids and everyone will love!!!
Healthy Oatmeal Muffins
3-4 Ripe Bananas
1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1 tbsp. Baking Powder
3 cups Oats
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
3 tsp. Cinnamon
(Optional) Fruits you can add to the mix:
1) Apples and Cinnamon
2) Banana and Pecans
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Smash the bananas in a medium sized mixing bowl with a fork, until the lumps are mostly gone.
Then add the rest of the ingredients and stir together with your fork. (Note: if desired, you can substitute the almond milk for your milk of choice).
At this point, this is your base. You could essentially add whatever fruit or mix in that you want (i.e. Fruit, Chocolate Chips, Peanut Butter, Raisins, etc.)
Today, we chose to keep it healthy and make three different muffins... Apple Cinnamon, Banana Nut and Blueberry.
After we mixed together the base, we split the mix into three different bowls. From this point, we added in the additional optional ingredients to make our favorite muffins. The amount of fruit or nuts you add at this point is at your discretion. It just depends on your preference.
Once you have everything mixed in, you are ready to put the mixture into your paper baking cups in your muffin tin.
Bake for 20 minutes in oven that has been preheated to 375F. Remove from oven and let the muffins cool for about 10 minutes.
Now it's time to enjoy your healthy sweet treat, so yummy and totally guilt free!!
My daughter Britney is a genius... These are awesome!
