I wouldn’t say breakfast is my favorite meal. Most people skip breakfast and I tend to be guilty of this too. Give me my coffee in the morning and perhaps a banana around 10:30AM and I’ll hold out till lunch. Studies have shown that skipping breakfast actually leads to overeating at lunch or worse choosing the wrong things to eat. When you are hungry you make the wrong choices just to get something quickly and those things tend to be full of calories and sugars that don’t give you the nutrition you need and only leave your body wanting more. So what can you do? BE PREPARED! I made these breakfast muffins as an “on the run” meal (cause Beyonce and Jay-Z ain’t the only ones). Full of fiber, protein, potassium and a little bit of sugar to give you the energy and fullness you need to get through till lunch. I made mine with almond milk to avoid dairy but you can do as you wish. Happy eating my friend!
You may be wondering why I used a circular tray in theabove photo and it is because I lost my muffin tray recently during my move so I had to use this circular tray instead - it worked great.
3 Ripe Bananas mashed
1 Cup Almond Milk (or equivalent)
3 Cups of Oats
1 TBSP Baking Powder
2 TBSP Cane Sugar
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
1/2 TSP of Cinnamon (optional)
Chocolate chips (optional)
Baking muffin tray
Baking muffin tray paper cups
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees on Bake.
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
Line your muffin tray with muffin paper cups
Scoop out the ingredient mixture into each cup evenly and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes. You should smell the muffins, if not let them stay a little longer or test with a toothpick to see if they are done. If they are ready there should be nothing on the toothpick when you stick in into a muffin and pull it out.
Allow to cool before eating.
