Multi Grain Muffin Recipe

I found this recipe on Pinterest and pinned it awhile ago (lately with all the depression I haven't wanted to cook) but I'm feeling better and planning ahead for meals is always important.

If you want the direct link to the recipe here it is

Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Muffins

2.5 cups old fashioned oats 
1 cup plain low fat greek yogurt
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar {or sweetener of choice}
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 ripe bananas 

Let the Baking Begin!

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray tin with non-stick cooking spray or line 12 muffin tins with silicone or foil liners.
2. Place all of the ingredients, including bananas in a blender or food processor, and blend until oats are smooth. {I added the oats a cup at a time and blended in between}
3. Divide batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.  
**Be sure to watch them closely in the oven, because depending on altitude, baking time may be a little less**
4. Most importantly: Enjoy & try not to eat them all at once!

Are you ready for some Lissa changes????

1. I used 2 cups of old fashioned oats made into oatmeal flour and 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
2. I used 2 single serving Oikos banana cream greek yogurt versus the plain
3. I used splenda instead of sugar

How I put this all together was to blend all the liquids and dry separate. I put all the liquids in the bullet blender and then put it into my kitchen aid mixer. I then added all the dry ingredients to the mix. I started on slow but at the end I gave it about 20 seconds on a good medium speed in "Miss Molly" my mixer.

Note: I didn't spray the bottom of my cupcake liners and next time I would do that! That would help getting them out of the liner - but over all full of flavor and very yummy. I had 2 for breakfast and one with coffee for a mid morning snack!

Things that made this project easier:

Miss Molly my mixer

the kitchen aid spatula scoop - changed my world. best invention ever -thank you Kitchen Aid 
Cookie Dough Scoop - great for portioning out muffins and heavy dough items - how did I bake before this!
