Recipe- Healthy Banana Muffins

Now that I've incorporated a bit of wheat back into my diet, I've been looking for healthy ways to eat it. I don't really want to get back to the "pancakes for breakfast, sandwich for lunch, pasta for dinner" scenario, I just want to add a few whole grains here and there! 

This Healthy Banana Muffin recipe includes whole wheat, oats, and is very low in added sugar. There are no eggs or oil in these babies! If you're looking for a healthy breakfast on to the go, try whipping up a batch of these!

Healthy Banana & Yogurt muffins

1 cup oats 
1 cup whole wheat or white wheat flour 
1.5 cups mashed bananas (3-4 bananas) 
1/4 cup brown sugar/white sugar 
1 tbsp vanilla extract 
1.5 tsp baking powder 
1 tsp baking soda 
1 pinch salt 
1 tbsp cinnamon 
1 cup applesauce 
3/4 cup no-fat plain greek yogurt 
1 cup other fruit, frozen or fresh 

  • If you have a food processor, stick the oats in a for a few minutes, until they are broken into small pieces- a bit more of a flour consistency. 
  • Add oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon into a large bowl and sift together. 
  • In a separate bowl, mash bananas, and then add applesauce, yogurt, and other fruit. 
  • Mix the wet and dry ingredients together, add the vanilla extract, and bake in a greased muffin tin for 25 minutes at 400. 
  • If you are cooking in a bread loaf pan, cook at 60 minutes for 350!
