Oatmeal Banana Muffins

I have not always been a huge breakfast person.  But over the past year I have learned that it really is the most important meal of the day.  But I love sweet in the morning most of the time.  And muffins are a favorite of mine.  So I was on the search for a healthy muffin.

And that is what I found.  I originally found the recipe here.  I was a bit skeptical because I am not a big oats person, but they were worth a try!  And I fell in love... and so did my whole family! So here I am to share this wonderfullness with all of you:)

The Ingredients:
2-2.5 cups of oats (the original recipe calls for 2.5 but that always seemed like too much when blending)
8 oz plan greek yogurt
3/4 cup suagr
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas (as ripe as possible or you will have a hard time blending them in)
1.5 tsp baking powder
0.5 tsp baking soda
As many chocolate chips as you would like

First preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Then line your muffin tins.  One recipe makes just over a dozen and I usually make two batches to feed the family all week.

Add all ingredients to your blender.  After trail and error I FINALLY found the perfect way to layer the ingredients to get the best blend.  First your two eggs.

Then about half your oats.

Then your greek yogurt, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, more oats, and bananas.  Then blend away.  You will need to stop and stir and push things down to get it blended well.

Blend until pretty smooth.  Getting all of the oats fully blended is almost impossible.  But just keep blending and they will be ok.

Pour into you muffin tins.

Add as many chocolate chips as you would like to the top!  Then bake in the over for 15-20 minutes.  They should be golden brown on top. (totes forgot to take a done picture)

These babies are only 95 calories each! How awesome is that?!  I usually eat two for breakfast.  They are quite filling and yummy and I love them!!  

Enjoy these and share them with your loved ones:)
