This recipe I am sharing with you today? I love it. It is full of healthy goodness and easily adjusted to many different flavors. I make a double batch at a time and freeze them for a fabulous quick breakfast throughout the month.
1 T of Vanilla
1/2 c of unsweetened applesauce (optional)
1/2 c brown sugar (if you have sweetened applesauce, skip the sugar)
1 banana, sliced (or more banana if you are a big banana fan)
1 c of fruit of your choice (can be fresh or frozen) such as blueberries, cranberries, peaches or even chocolate chips!
1/4 c coconut (optional)
3 c of Gluten Free old fashioned/rolled/steelcut Oats
1/2 t salt
3 t baking powder
1/2 T Cinnamon
1/4 t Nutmeg
1 1/4 c Milk
Oven at 350 degrees.
Mix eggs, vanilla, applesauce and brown sugar until combined. Add in the banana and other fruit (or, if using chocolate chips, add them last, like you would to chocolate chip cookies). Add and mix in salt, baking powder and spices. Then add in the oats. Mix in well, before adding the milk. This will seem far too soupy but it is okay.
Using a measuring cup pour the batter into greased or lined muffin tins, destributing the liquid evenly.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the middle of the muffins are set.
If you chose to freeze them, ziplock bags or air-tight containers work best.
