The first day of summer break is down and we have nothin’ to show for it. Except for a productive work day for me–these muffins and some exciting things coming next week, and a lazy, lay-around-the-house day for the boys.
Kids shouldn’t be allowed to get sick the first day of summer. Totally botched our first day of summer, beach plans. But can I tell you just how much I loooooved not packing lunches, rushing breakfast or sprinting out the door to get the boys to school. I loved it. I snuck away to the gym early right and came home and made these easy Banana Oat Mini Muffins for the boys.
With just about 5 ingredients these mix up quickly! Bananas, oats, coconut oil, an egg, cinnamon, coconut sugar + baking soda. Oops six. Nope SEVEN if you want chocolate chips. YOUR kids want the chocolate chips.
These aren’t super sweet muffin, so a few chocolate chips on top is just what they need.
This recipe makes about 24 mini muffins so these would be great to make at the beginning of the week to have for a quick snack, or treat, or even along with something else for breakfast. They are miniature though….so they might disappear quickly.
Easy Banana Oat Mini Muffins
Yield 24 mini muffins
3 medium bananas, ripe and mashed
2 cups rolled oats
2 tbs coconut oil, melted
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional for topping)
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray a mini muffin pan with coconut oil spray.
In a mixing bowl, stir the mashed bananas, oats, egg, baking soda, coconut oil (melted), cinnamon, and coconut sugar together until combined.
Scoop into mini muffin pan, top with 2-3 chocolate chips per muffin. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
these are not a super sweet muffin, the chocolate chips are what make them just sweet enough!
