Howdie all! It’s been a while since my last post. I have a great recipe for ya. This one I have made a couple times now and it turns out great each time. I found it on Pinterest and have made a couple different versions.
- 2 1/2 cups Oats (I used quick recipe calls for old fashioned, I assume for more nutrients?)
- 1 cup plain low fat or non fat yogurt (I used greek more protein) *I didn’t have enough yogurt so I added in apple sauce; also you can use a flavored yogurt I did that too
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup honey (I use local raw)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 Tbsp flax see (mine is already ground but won’t matter you will see why)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 ripe bananas
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray your muffin tins generously.
Put oats into blender (I guess you could use food processor too). Blend till is like flour, you will see flakes still, blend about 30-45 seconds. Add in remaining ingredients, blend till smooth.
Pour into muffin tins.
Now here is where I changed it up a bit, I added chocolate chips in a batch, dried cranberries in a batch, and fresh blackberries in a batch. I just dropped them on top of the muffin batter in the muffin tin. I also poured the batter into a separate bowl and mixed in chips.
Bake 15-18 minutes. Turn out to cool completely put in air tight container.
Options: I have been toying with the idea of using grated zucchini and herbs for a savory muffin, maybe adding in cheese.
This is the blended oatmeal and honey, I had already started when I remembered to get the camera!
View from the top, all remaining ingredients.
Now this is NOT the muffins. This is my first attempt at a pound cake for Gina’s school pet show tomorrow. I have said it before and I will say it again, I am not a baker!!!
