Chunky Banana Oat Muffins: One of my favorite weekend activities, especially on cold, wintery mornings, is baking with my girls. It’s a great way to connect and teach (and make messes!) If you have very little ones just let them play with ingredients for exposure – and with older ones you can explore real world skills, math, flavor combinations and more. Plus, it makes the house smell AMAZING!
Here I’ve made some Chunky Banana Oat Muffins that are loaded with flavor and goodness, but don’t have an ounce of refined flour or sugar. They’re little and portable, great for breakfast or as a snack, and perfect in lunch boxes. Enjoy!
