Healthy Banana Muffins

Wow! A new year, another attempt to NOT let two weeks go by without a blog post! I have many goals for 2012, not the least of which is to be more consistent here.

So to start the new year off right I'm going to deviate from my usual recipe sharing and share something that is actually healthy.
Believe it or not (I know it's hard to tell from this blog) 99% of the time I'm a total health nut.
These are everyday muffins, delicious by themselves or with a smidge of peanut butter.

I made a rookie blog mistake and forgot to take pictures while baking so these are the only two pictures of my banana muffins that you're going to get:

1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 mashed bananas

Preheat oven to 400.
Combine dry ingredients in one bowl, combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
Add wet to dry and stir until just mixed, don't beat up the batter please.
Spoon in to 12 muffin tins lined with paper muffin cups.
Bake in the center of the oven for 17-20 minutes, until brown on top.

A note for those who hate to dishes like me, when combining wet ingredients use a fork to mash the banana in a medium size bowl, add the egg and whisk them together, then add the remainder of the wet ingredients. Saves you an extra dish from mashing the bananas.

Enjoy! These are super easy in the morning, just lightly toast and add a bit of peanut butter. Low sugar, low calorie, delicious!
