I have always had a sweet tooth and love baked goods! In the morning the smell of muffins, coffee cake, or fresh bread baking is divine! There is something comforting about the scent of cinnamon in the morning that is comforting, bringing back those wonderful childhood memories! What a great way to start the day!
I usually drink a Shakeology shake for breakfast (which I love) but once in awhile want to change it up. I want to smell cinnamon throughout the house! I want to munch on something yummy as I sip my morning coffee! However, I am always running out the door early so I need something easy to make and healthy that I can eat on the run!
So it is oatmeal muffins to the rescue! These muffins are easy to make! They are healthy as no process sugar or flour is used! They are full of fiber and they can be baked while you are getting ready for work! What is even better is that I can freeze them and warm them in the microwave or let them thaw on their own and eat them for a healthy snack!
To make this recipe as easy as possible for my morning rush I decided to use my trusty blender for the mixing! I first dump all liquid ingredients and flavorings in the blender and blend well. Then I add the banana and blend again. Next I add half the dry ingredients at a time blending after each addition. I spray the muffin tin and pour in the batter a bake!
You can use a variety of toppings. My favorite are chocolate chips (banana and chocolate – you can’t go wrong), blue berries and raspberries. However the combinations are endless so have fun adding fruits of your choice and even nuts!
If you are following the 21 Day Fix these muffins fit nicely into the plan! Each muffin equals 1/2 yellow container and 1/2 a purple container. Don’t forget to count your toppings as well!
And this recipe was husband approved!
Clean, healthy muffins that are free of processed sugar and flour. They are easy to make and can be frozen! Perfect for breakfast on the go!
Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control... My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6's! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
