Easy Banana Muffins

Amy Approved muffins!!

Before you read this recipe please know that you can add your own touch. A few fun ideas are add pumpkin or apple spice, any nuts or dried fruit or even raw cocoa powder! I do not measure when I make these so please bear with me and as you are making yours it’s all about getting the right consistency before you bake them. This recipe is similar to my oat bars but I like that these are portioned (portion control anyone :)) and at lunch I was burnt out of my baked sweet potato so I often grab 1-2 of these after I eat my salad or as a quick breakfast. They freeze great but after a few days on your counter I suggest you keep them in a glass container in your fridge.

Ingredients:
2-4 ripe-ish bananas (it’s ok if they are not super ripe they just won’t be as sweet)
Big scoop organic peanut butter or raw almond butter (prob 2-3 tablespoons depending on how many bananas you started with)
Cinnamon – as much as you like
1 tsp vanilla
Gluten free oats – I add these until it has the consistency of muffin mix
Enjoy Life (dairy free) chocolate chips – optional – top a few with these if you want a sweet treat or have a 5 year old 🙂
Organic raw local honey – sometimes I will add a spoonful of this if I want them a tad sweeter

Preheat your oven to 350 deg. Into your Kitchen Aid or mixing bowl add the bananas, nut butter, cinnamon and vanilla & mix well (if you are adding the honey add this now). As the mixer is going add the gf oats until the mixture has the consistency of muffins. Grease your mini muffin tin with avocado or coconut oil (I often use avocado oil spray)  or put small muffin liners into your muffin stone or tin (I use both types of pans as you can see above). Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown on top and you can put a clean toothpick through the center. Do not overcook as the small ones will dry out quickly.

Please let me know when you try my recipe and I would love to hear what twist you added!!!
