Healthy Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins

Healthy Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins

Makes 18-20 muffins.

Here's a winner recipe -- a muffin that's healthy and the whole family loves.  Enough sweetness from the honey, yet plenty of healthy ingredients to start your day right.  The wee one loves these for breakfast and as an after-nap snack, and I love that I can make them, freeze them, and pull them out one by one for a wholesome, homemade treat.

2.5 cups old fashioned oats 
1 cup plain low fat greek yogurt
2 eggs
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tsp vanilla
2 ripe bananas 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray tin with non-stick cooking spray or line muffin tins with silicone or foil liners.
Place the oats in the food processor and pulse for about 10 seconds.  Add remaining ingredients to the food processor. 
Process until everything is mixed together and oats are smooth.

At this point in the process, you can separate the batter into different bowls, adding dark chocolate chips, nuts, blueberries, or whatever you want to make a variety of muffins.  Or you can add one ingredient to the entire batter.  Or, like I prefer them, leave them plain!  They are still great!

Divide batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 18-20 minutes (mine only took 14-15 minutes), or until toothpick comes out clean.
