oatmeal banana mini muffins

imagedo you believe that?  this phrase has been echoing in my mind since the day i read it, several weeks ago.  i said earlier on IG that i accepted my first formal health and fitness speaking engagement and well, i can honestly say that this is THE first public speaking event i’m actually excited about!!! prolly cause it’s concerning health and fitness :) .  i’d be lying if i said i wasn’t nervous, but hey, if it doesn’t challenge me, it doesn’t change me.  time to start SPEAKING along with all this typing!  if God brings you to something, He will surely take you through it. keep walking in faith and reaching for your dreams, friends… if i can get my sometimes timid and scary behind up there and do the one thing that terrifies most people, YOU CAN TOO.20130725_080411

super ripe bananas mean what? some baking is about to go down.   for breakfast this morning after my class, i made some banana oatmeal mini muffins.  i had the boy in mind- he loves these things and as long as i keep them coming, he will keep gobbling.

20130725_094643there is a similar recipe in my ebook for these puppies, and i got the calorie count even lower in there! pretty excited about that.

oatmeal banana mini muffins:

the stuff:

  • 1/2 cup ground rolled or quick oats ( or oat flour)
  • 1 small super ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 packet stevia
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • pinch of salt

do this:

mix real good until smooth!  if you’d like to use your food processor, that’s cool too.  i kinda liked the banana chunks in each bite though.  fill your tins 3/4 of the way up and cook these guys for 7-10 minutes in a 350 degree oven. i topped mine with a banana slice, a drizzle of chocolate PB2 (mixed with unsweetened vanilla almond milk), and a dark chocolate chip.
