Honey Banana Oat Muffins

Gluten Free Honey Banana Oat Muffins

I have a new product coming out soon. I’m hoping to get it officially launched next week. I still have a little work to do on it, but I’m excited about. With that said, I got a little behind this week. Have you ever felt like your constantly out of sorts? That’s been my last six months or so. Every time I feel like I’m back on track, I get knocked off. Frustrating.  I tend to retreat to my new found happy place, especially when it’s cold and wet outside, which is in the kitchen. I really enjoy trying new recipes and photographing them. I find it relaxing destroying the kitchen with every inch of the counter covered in something or by something. Then I clean every up and the kitchen sparkles, the new recipe smell fills the air and it’s been a good day. Whether the recipe is good or great or in some rare cases, ends up in the trash – I tried something new, learned something and the best part, had fun doing it.

Yesterday with the April snow pouring down, I made these Honey Banana Oat Muffins. I really don’t know how to explain it. I don’t like bananas and yet, I have six or seven blackened ones in my freezer. How did I get so many? I thought it was time to use them and make room in the freezer for something else.

These muffins were super tasty. Spongy, moist with a bit of healthy. Now, they are not very sweet, but I wanted them to be more for a healthy breakfast and not empty calories. Sprinkling the brown sugar on the top will add a bit of sweetness, but is completely optional.
