Looking for a breakfast or snack food packed with quality protein and omega 3 fatty acids? Look no further! These muffins are packed with nutrition and flavour AND have no added sugar!!! You can also “dress them up” as I have in the picture above. This mini version of the muffin is topped with Yoso Chocolate Coconut Milk Yogurt and a raspberry. You could also use Greek yogurt and/or any other fruit you and your little ones enjoy!
1 cup oats (ideally steel cut quick cooking oats)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached white flour
¼ cup chia seeds
½ Tbsp. baking powder
½ Tbsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup bananas (about 3 large bananas)
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce (or alternate fruit puree)
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
½ Tbsp. vanilla
- Mix dry ingredients together and set aside.
- Mash bananas and beat eggs then add these together along with applesauce, oil, yogurt, and vanilla.
- Add the dry and wet mixture together and stir until moistened, but do not over-stir.
- Spoon into muffin pan and bake at 375 degrees F for 14-17 minutes for mini muffins and 22-28 minutes for “regular” size muffins.
Makes 18 regular size muffins or 36 mini muffins.
Feel free to add dried fruit or nuts for added nutrition and flavor too!
Until next time…stay healthy!
