My Healthier Banana Bread Oatmeal Muffins make a great breakfast or perfect snack any time of the day.
Banana bread is always a favorite around here! I know many of you love it too! So, being that it’s January is National Oatmeal Month it just made sense to try and add some heart healthy oatmeal to my banana bread. Whole grains are always a good thing. If you’re not a fan of oatmeal in your food, please keep reading I explain in a bit how to make these muffins with or without oatmeal.
I have to be honest, I knew I wanted to use oatmeal because oats are all natural, heart healthy and pretty darn yummy, but I also wanted to make something any kid would be happy to pick up and eat in the morning with a glass of cold milk or orange juice!
The goal was to make a healthier banana bread muffin that was appealing enough that any kid would want to enjoy one. Goal accomplished, my kids loved these, I hope yours do too!
Never underestimate the power of a few sprinkles!
Only 2 tablespoons of sprinkles were used to make 24 muffins. My Healthier Banana Bread Oatmeal Muffins have just enough sprinkles to draw some interest!
