I came across this recipe from my friend Christine over at Juggling Real Food and Real Life. She and I both share a passion for giving our families "real" food so I know that I can always trust her recipes! This time, I knew that I had to try it so I ventured to the kitchen only to find that I did not have all of the ingredients. Since I am more of a mad scientist than a cook, I decided to try making them with what I had on hand..to my surprise, they worked!
These baked oatmeal muffins have been a hit with my kids - they ask for them at least 3 times a week. I certainly don't argue because they are simple, can be made in many different varieties, and my version is totally organic!
Before I tell you about my version...I hope you will check out the original recipe from Christine HERE.
|29 cents a pound!|
- 2 large bananas mashed (ripe works best)
- 2 cups of oatmeal (any variety)
- 2 tablespoons of milk (I use coconut but any works)
- any fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, etc. - also can be made without)
|Strawberry version next to my homemade veggie sausage!|
- Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
- Mix together bananas, oatmeal, and milk
- Gently fold in your fresh fruit
- Pour in greased muffin pans
- Bake for about 20-25 minutes
Can you believe that it is this easy I couldn't! I try to make a double batch but if these muffins are in the house...they are gobbled up quickly!
Thank you Christine for the inspiration! I hope you get inspired as well and create some amazing baked oatmeal muffins!
