As much as I love to cook, I don’t bake often. But, Isabella loves to bake so I have been trying to make more of an effort! And I like to create healthier versions of baked treats with my daughter to show her that healthier CAN be delicious! But, it has to be simple too! Our latest creation, Gluten Free Banana Oat Protein Muffins, check all the boxes-healthy, delicious, and simple!
These muffins contain no oil, no flour, and no added sugars. As an added bonus, they are full of protein! They are super moist, yummy, and are healthy enough to be eaten for breakfast or as a guilt free treat. Also perfect for the time treats are needed for a school party or bake sale!
These muffins freeze really well. Store the left overs in the freezer and defrost as needed!
