Healthy Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Healthy Banana Oatmeal Muffins. Simple...tasty...and toddler approved! Plus it's made with no flour ;)You want a healthy breakfast option? Need a recipe for those ripe bananas on your counter? Have a picky toddler? Like oatmeal?

If you answered yes to any of these this then I have  recipe for you!

Like most amazing DIY projects, home decor and recipes I found this one off Pinterest. It hails from a blog called Chase and Em. I made a few changes and used egg whites instead (well I was actually out of eggs and used what I had!). I’m a big fan of Crock Pots because you dump your ingredients and the machine does the cooking for you. I have the same love for food processors too. More powerful and larger than a blender, food processors make cooking easy. Shredding, blending, pureeing, mincing, slicing and chopping. Pop a can of peanuts in your food processor and blend for 5 minutes and you have your very own peanut butter (read more about that here).

In this recipe you toss all your ingredients in the food processor and let the machine blend it and pour straight into your muffin tins. Easy clean up too.

Picky toddler? I have one and she approves this recipe!! These muffins use honey and the natural sweet taste of ripe bananas for the delicious taste! I made these twice. The first time I split the batter in two adding chocolate chips to one and chopped pecans to the other. Lily went crazy for the chocolate ones. I used white chocolate chips another time and it just wasnt’ the same as the first batch. When I ate these last time I paired it with some fresh blueberries and it was delish. Next time I make these I might throw some berries into the batter!

Enjoy!

Healthy Banana Oatmeal Muffins

2 1/2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup greek yogurt
1/3 cup egg whites
1/2 cup honey
2 ripe bananas
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray muffin tin with cooking spray.

Place all the ingredients into the food processor and blend until smooth.

Separate mixture into bowls to add chocolate chips or nuts.  OR you can pour the batter straight into the muffin tins!

Bake for 15-18 minutes (or until it passes the toothpick test) and cool muffins on rack.

    This recipe is absolutely delicious and I must try it, I like that you used egg whites, I am going to do the same thing. Your daughter is absolutely adorable! I am going to do this recipe and pack it with blueberries, I will serve it as a snack for our dieting group on Saturday. Blueberries cause fat loss

    Can you freeze these? What if you do not have greek yogurt?

    Although I had to do some substitutions because of what I had on hand, this turned out really good, considering how simple it is. I liked using the food processor to make the batter smoother. My kids have given it their approval, too!

    This was great! Putting the batter into a good processor gave it a smooth texture and kept it moist. I will definitely be making these again!
