If you know me, I am all about quick and easy (and I am also all about not wasting food, especially when it comes to my sometimes picky toddlers). Muffins are such an easy snack options for the twins (who are now 18 months - where does the time go!?) and I think you guys will like it too! I love this recipe because I only dirty two dishes - my blender and my muffin tin!
Now, let's get to the recipe!
2 cups regular minute oats (dry)
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk of your choosing (I use whole milk for extra fat)
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large ripe banana
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (you could use chia or hemp hearts here as well)
Pinch of cinnamon (optional)
*If needed to have your blender process all ingredients, you can add a bit more milk, as needed.
Add all ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor (I use the Vitamix - it works amazing for this!) and blend until smooth.
Pour mixture into a 12-well silicone muffin tin (or a greased muffin tin).
Baked at 400F for 20 minutes or until golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
I always top mine with some butter and peanut butter for some additional healthy fats 🙂
