Banana Muffins

Banana & Oat Muffins

Perfect on a Sunday morning with a cup of chai… or as a make ahead grab and go breakfast, snack or picnic.

Only 6 ingredients and so quick and easy even my boys can whip these up in a flash.  I made these one day when i was craving my banana bread but didn’t have the patience for it to take 45 minutes to bake… this is a similar recipe but as they are baked in smaller muffin moulds – you can have your cake and eat it sooner!

If you don’t like banana you can substitute them with a similar amount of ripe pear or steamed apples/apple sauce – both work really well.

Throw in nuts, seeds or blueberries for a variation too – delicious!
