I like to sleep in as long as possible every single day of the week. My kids love to sleep in during the week but LOVE getting up early on the weekend. Funny how that works huh? In an effort to get as much sleep as possible I try to make breakfast as quick and easy as possible. Pretty much everything in muffin form is a huge hit with my kids. I must say I’m pretty into muffins too. They’re easy to eat and portable. We always try to switch up the muffins we make and this time around Peanut Butter Oat Muffins sounded like something we could all enjoy.
First things first, preheat your oven to 400F. Then whip up your batter. I’m pretty obsessed with my BlendTec and love using it at least once a day. Makes it worth the money I spent on it ;). So while you could whip this batter up with a whisk I decided to use my BlendTec. One of the things I love about these muffins is that because they’re so easy to make you can easily involve your children. It’s so important to get your kids into the kitchen as often as possible. Have them help you measure out the ingredients, then they can just dump it all into the blender.
Pulse your ingredients: two medium bananas, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup oats, 3 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon vanilla, 2 large eggs and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, until all ingredients are combined.
You don’t have to use liners but I decided too since that makes it easier to travel with. If you’re not using liners now would be a good time to make sure you’re muffins don’t stick to the pan by spraying them with a non-stick spray. This recipe make about 12 decent muffins when you fill the muffin tins up about 3/4 of the way.
Bake at 400F for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Let cool before serving to avoid the muffin sticking to the liners.
I baked these right after Mason got home from school and he could hardly contain himself. He kept raving about how good they smelled. Luckily they tasted as good as they smelled. They’ve made for a quick and easy breakfast.
