Healthy Strawberry Banana Oat Muffins

Strawberry Banana Oat Muffins
I’m moving in 3 weeks, so I feel like it is probably time to address the random foods in my freezer & cabinets. I had a few frozen bananas that I wanted to use up, thus I decided I would make some muffins. While, I LOVE the peanut butter chip banana muffin, it’s a little too dessert like. I’m trying to be healthy (this week, at least), so I decided to mix it up and make these Strawberry Banana Oat Muffins this time around. I want a muffin I can have for breakfast without feeling guilty about it.

The muffins turned out super well. They are moist, not overly sweet, and practically healthy.  I brought them to a book club meeting and they were a huge hit. I mean who doesn’t love strawberries & bananas? They were meant to be together! This recipe also doesn’t yield a huge quantity of muffins, so it’s easy to eat them all before they go bad. They didn’t last long in my house, and I have a feeling they won’t last long in yours either.
