It’s been almost a year now since I decided to change the way my family eats. I removed all the junk and highly processed foods from our cupboards. I replaced everything with fresh produce and natural foods. No more white flour or sugar. I wanted to find better things for them to eat like these oatmeal banana muffins.
We eat 90% “clean” in our house as of today. I cannot stress enough how awesomely great this change has been in our family. My husband and I have lost a total of 75 pounds! No diets, no gimmicks, just eating GOOD food and exercising on a regular basis.
Anyway, it’s always been a little difficult to find and make things fresh that the kids will enjoy. They love salads, fresh fruits, and veggies. However, when I made them 100% rolled oatmeal for the 1st time, they didn’t eat it. They were used to the sugar-packed Quaker’s brand, which they loved. So, I came across a recipe on Pinterest (LOVE that site) and FINALLY my girls are eating oatmeal. Just not in the traditional way.
Oatmeal Banana Muffins
2.5 cups 100% rolled
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 ripe bananas
3/4 cup sweetener (I use Stevia; just make sure you have the equivalent of 3/4 cup sugar)
8 ounces plain Greek yogurt
Take all ingredients, except oats, and put them into the blender. Start with half the oats, then add more as it blends. Blend until it becomes a batter. Pour batter into either a muffin pan or cupcake pan. (I used a cupcake pan so they would be smaller for the girls.) Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve them up!
The best part is these little cakes are only 97 calories!
I hope you enjoy this recipe. If you’d like to check out my Pinterest page full of healthy recipes, you can find it here.
