I was up to my armpits (oh, sorry that was not a good analogy) in oatmeal cups this weekend. I made these delicious Banana Oatmeal Muffins, some Peach Almond Oatmeal Muffins and Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins for a bunch of on-the-go breakfasts next week. (recipes coming soon) Usually I don’t make this many at once but I am also planning on bringing some on our vacation next week to help feed my “soon-to-be a mommy” daughter. She is gluten intolerant and, with this pregnancy, can’t stand the sight of eggs, let alone eat them, so this will give her something nutritious & tasty for breakfast.

Of course these are so good, kind of like banana bread made with oats instead of wheat, that my grandson (OK, who am I kidding, everyone) will love to grab a few too. And the chocolate chips in the mix certainly add to the yummy-ness. 🙂

These muffins come out very moist, full of banana-y goodness, and besides the little sugar added, are very good for you. Just take a look at this chart for oats and tell me you don’t feel healthier already.

The nice thing about these muffins is they can be wrapped individually and frozen and will keep for a few months in the freezer. Then when you are ready to eat them, just pop them into the microwave for a minute or 1-1/2 minutes, and you’ve got a nutritious breakfast in no time.
