While snuggling in bed this morning, the kids were putting in their breakfast requests. My daughter said she wanted corn muffins. I responded I don’t have corn flour. She says: “But we have the frozen corn! My son:”I don’t want corn muffins Tika! I want oatmeal wif boobewies!” In order to make them both happy, we came up with these as a solution. They were so easy to make, my daughter did most of the work. As they were baking i thought “Great, here’s school snack for the next few days!”.
Well as I’m typing this, there are barely a quarter of them left. I doubt there will be any left by the end of the morning. I guess the kids love them!!
You can get as creative as you want with the flavors here. Raisins? Cranberries? Shredded coconut? The possibilities are endless. And these are super quick to make I actually could make these before school one morning.
- 2 cups small oats
- 1 large ripe banana
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup frozen corn
I would have added 2 TBS of honey but we are out. The kids don’t seem to mind but if you are used to having a sweetener breakfast, i would suggest you add a couple TBS of sweetener as these are just slightly sweet.
- preheat oven to 350*F
- put all ingredients but frozen fruit in a bowl and have your kids mash it all together with their hands!
- add the frozen fruit and continue mashing until well combined
- grease mini muffin tins with coconut oil
- fill them up pressing them down so they keep there shape
- bake for 10 minutes
- cool and enjoy!
