Banana Oatmeal Muffins
The 2 Week Diet

Healthy Banana Oatmeal Muffins

I found this amazing recipe for strawberry shortcake muffins a few weeks back on Pinterest. You can find the recipe here. I made the recipe with strawberries the first time and it was so easy, so delicious, and so healthy! We’re talking 93 calories per muffin! I thought they were so good my mind started reeling with all the other fruity possibilities, so this week I tried bananas 🙂 Yay for my first attempt at baking anything with bananas!Ingredients
*2 /1/2 cup oats (old fashioned kind, not quick cooking)

*1 cup plain low fat greek yogurt

*2 eggs

*3/4 cup sweetener of choice, I used the real stuff: sugar! or 2 tbs stevia sweetener

*1 1/2 tsp baking powder

*1/2 tsp baking soda

*2 bananas (I only used one but realized it needed at least one more)

Important: The paper liners don’t work well when baking with a base that does not include flour, they always seem to stick to the paper. I sprayed the muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or you can use foil cupcake liners or a silicone muffin pan.

Let the Baking Begin!
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray tin with non-stick cooking spray or line 12 muffin tins with silicone or foil liners, (or just use a silicone muffin pan).
2. Place all of the ingredients, including bananas in a blender or food processor, and blend until oats are smooth.
3. Divide batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
4. Most importantly: Enjoy!!!
