I have been trying out new recipes in the kitchen lately. Love this breakfast muffin and wanted to share it with y'all. Here it is. 

Oatmeal-Banana Power Muffins


Ingredients:
  • 2.5 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup plain or vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Vanilla 
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp ground Flax Seed (Flax Seed Meal)
  • 2 ripe Bananas
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • optional: walnuts or chocolate chips for topping muffins
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
Yields 12 muffins

  1. Place Oats in food processor and pulse for 10 seconds
  2. Add remaining ingredients
  3. process until all ingredients are well incorporated and smooth
  4. Divide among 12 liners and add any topping
  5. Bake 19-21 mins
  6. pull out and let cool on a wire rack
  7. ENJOY! 
These came out so moist and made my kitchen smell SO good. Next time might try adding a scoop of protein powder to make them great for breakfast on the go or after a workout.

Great tip: When your bananas are ripe but you are not ready to use them, peel, and pop in the freezer and they will keep till you are ready to bust out some yummy muffins or banana bread!
