Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Heathly body, healthy mind.  Enter the Nineteen Eleven giveaway {here}

Got a baggie full of super-ripe, black, frozen bananas in your possession?

Skip the banana bread for once and tries these babies.  Very easy to put together, very easy to grab for mornings on the go, very tasty.

I did find my original recipe at C&E {here}

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, line 12 muffin cups with your favorite wrappers and gather up the following:
  • 2.5 c rolled oats (not the instant kind)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
Feel free to add in a little extra flavor with some cinnamon, apple pie spice or vanilla extract.  All of these flavors merry well with the banana, making them your own extra special creation!

Blend all the ingredient in a food processor or blender.  Because you're not using at flour, you need to grind up the oatmeal to help act as a binder.  The mix will be runny(er that your normal muffin batter) but fear not.  Pour the batter into your muffin cups and bake for 18-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out cleanly.

Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Being that I'm on a skinny mission, I plugged this recipe into My Fitness Pal and came up with the following specs (per muffin)
137 calories
1.1 g of total fat (.2 g saturated fat)
28.3 g total carbs
4.8 g protein

Certainly better than the store-bough kind.  And better than skipping breakfast all together!
