Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Yes, I am bringing you another oatmeal muffin recipe! I love making these as they are simple and a great healthier alternative to packaged snacks – not just for kids but for adults too. These are made with a few pantry staples that you probably have anyway so it makes it super easy.

This recipe can easily be made vegan by using flax eggs in place of eggs. I am going to say stick with creamy PB for the best taste but feel free to switch up the nut butter – just can’t guarantee the same deliciousness. Adding in a tsp or 2 of chia or hemp seeds will boost its nutritional value with no compromise to taste so I say do it!

Once cooked and cooled, I like to wrap them individually and keep them in the fridge for a quick grab & go snack. Also can freeze them if you make a large batch to have on hand. Best when reheated with butter or nut butter on top. I also like to add them to my yogurt bowl for a satisfying breakfast. Either way, these are absolutely delicious & packed with protein – excuse me while I make another batch!
