Healthy Baked Oatmeal Muffins - 3 ingredients

Okay....This recipe is going to sound too simple to be true but trust is simple and AWESOME! There is no added sugar and no oil!

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 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) 
Notice that my version has no oil and no added sugar. The kids don't notice a difference and I certainly am not going to tell them!

Strawberry version next to my homemade veggie sausage!
  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix together bananas, oatmeal, and milk
  3. Gently fold in your fresh fruit
  4. Pour in greased muffin pans
  5. Bake for about 20-25 minutes
  6. ENJOY!

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!
