Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives you’re kids the nutrients they need to stay energized all day!

There’s enough sugar in any store bought snacks that I don’t want to add more to my children’s diet.

Making Your Muffins
I know that baking muffins might seem like a daunting task, but I can assure you these muffins are pretty easy.
It’ll probably take you about 20-25 minutes of mixing ingredients, less if you’re fast, and then another 22-24 minutes of baking.
For this recipe you’ll need two bowls, one small and one medium. We really like these ones. One will be for dry ingredients, the other for wet ingredients. I always like to start with the dry ingredients.
Before we get to mixing ingredients, it’s a good idea to pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Now, take your smaller bowl and add the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, sugar, and salt. Give it a little stir to mix the ingredients.
In your larger bowl, you’ll want to start by smashing the bananas. This is my son’s favorite part!
Smash the bananas until they are nothing but a bunch of mush. You want to get all the clumps out.
After the bananas are smashed, add the rest of the wet ingredients to the bowl and stir.
With both the dry and wet ingredients mixed, it’s time to combine them. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, stirring with a whisk while you do.
The batter should be a little thick when you have it all mixed up. It looks pretty amazing before it’s even baked!
If you’re adding blueberries, chocolate chips, coconut or anything else to these muffins, now is the time to fold them into the batter before you put it in the muffin pan.
Use a large spoon to transfer the batter to the muffin pan. Once you’re pan is full, pop it in the oven for 22 – 24 minutes at 325 degrees.
Your muffins are ready when they are golden brown and a toothpick can be inserted and removed without anything sticking to it.

I love the simplicity of these muffins and the minimal amount of sugar used in them.
