With school getting ready to start soon… (agghhh I know bite your tongue right!) Wow has summer flown by as much for everyone else like it has for us? Really I’m not sure where it’s gone! We have one week until school starts. I can’t believe it. So I’ve been talking with my kids about what they want to take for lunches this year. They get so bored with PB&J so we are going to try and mix it up more this year and they came up with some great ideas.
I decided that I’d work on getting some new breakfast items to try out for school this year too so this is today’s WIUW Banana oatmeal muffins.

And would you believe I found it on Pinterest? here is the link. Also it helped that we had breakfast for dinner so it went well with our dinner.
And yep of course it was easy. I’ve never made batter in the blender but wow I’m totally sold. Pour everything in the blender mix until smooth and pour into the muffin pan. My favorite was just pouring no scooping out the batter so quick and clean! Yep that’s my style!
Here you go!
2 ½ C Old fashioned oats (not quick)
1 single serving cup of plain low fat greek yogurt
¾ C sugar – or sweetener of choice – (could use 2Tbs stevia)
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
* Makes 12 Muffins
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Do not use paper liners. Either spray the pan or use silicone or foil liners (or – now is the time to look into a silicone pan. Yep I’ll be looking into that soon)
Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until oats are smooth.
Pour into muffin pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
And test on your would be consumers!
Mine totally passed! Yahoo! Here’s to one new breakfast for school days. Throw in a side of fruit, some juice, maybe some yogurt. Yay not cold cereal everyday! (as a total side note I NEVER get a fun pic of all of my kids! yes one is still missing-she was in the high chair out of the pic but still messy hair end of day this is one of my new favorite pics)
So when do you start school? I know some have already.
