Pantry Staple Blender Muffins


3 ripe bananas
2 cups old fashioned oats
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk or almond milk
1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup chocolate chips (allergen free if needed)


  1. Wash Hands.
  2. Throw all ingredients in the blender. Blend it up.
  3. Distribute into 12 muffin tins (use non-stick spray or silicon liners). I like to put a couple extra chocolate chips on top of each one so my kids don’t realize they are healthy, ha!
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Enjoy a small victory in a world seemingly full of chaos.
