{{Toddler Approved}} Whole Wheat Banana Oat Muffins


In this house we consume a lot of bananas.  Carson loves half a banana with his breakfast and I usually put the other half in my morning shake.  Lately I've become pretty addicted to chocolate covered cherry shakes so I haven't been using our bananas up.

I'm of the waste not want not mentality so throwing away half a banana or letting them turn brown and discarding them just won't work for me.  Carson loves muffins, waffles, pancakes, you know...the stuff that's good for you.  (Not)

So, I decided to take the ripe bananas and create a healthy muffin for my little guy to have in the mornings.  They're also a great alternative to a cookie after dinner.  He loves them and they aren't terribly awful for him.  Winning!

To make you just need:

  • 2 mashed ripe bananas
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c whole milk 
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2/3 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 c. quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 honey
  • 1 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • coconut oil spray
Preparation:
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Combine first 5 ingredients in medium bowl.  Mix well and set aside.
  3. Whisk together last 6 ingredients in separate bowl.
  4. Combine mixtures together.
  5. Spray 12 muffin cups with coconut oil and fill with batter.
  6. Bake 16 minutes.
Enjoy!
