Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Halloween was fairly uneventful this year as I had to work until 9:00 and the weather was pretty dreary. However, once I got home after work JD & I dressed the boys up in their superhero costumes and tried to capture a good picture of the dogs. I bribed them with treats to try and get them to smile at the camera but you can definitely tell how unimpressed they were with their costumes. But I still think they look pretty handsome, don’t you?

I also gave up on trying to edit out the red-eye on Ozzy and flash-eye on Rally…someday I am going to learn how to properly edit photos. One day..

Since I like to sleep in as late as I possible can in the mornings (to be honest, I sleep in later than I should every morning and am constantly running late!) I need a breakfast that is grab and go. Most mornings I end up eating my breakfast on my drive to work. And my drive to work is about 5 minutes long so it has to be something I can eat quickly but will keep me full until lunch. These muffins are a perfect match to my breakfast checklist. They are grab and go and easy to eat on the run. Plus, the oatmeal makes them very filling and keeps my belly from grumbling all morning at work. Because that can be embarrassing. These muffins are even so moist that you don’t need any butter or anything- they are perfect just as is.  And trust me, I put butter on EVERYTHING. So if I say they don’t need butter, then they definitely do not. This is a recipe that I modified only slightly from Keeping Up with the Joneses- a great blog!

Banana Oatmeal Muffins

  • 2&1/2 cups oats
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1&1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and either line a cupcake tin or spray it with some olive oil. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and the wet ingredients together in a smaller bowl then mix all together. Scoop about 1/3 cup batter into each muffin liner and bake for 25 minutes.
