Banana Oat Muffins


These are one of our fan faves - mini banana muffins with oats and a few mini chocolate chips thrown in. Using whole oats, whole wheat flour, mashed bananas, and smooth milled flaxseed really gives these mini muffins a fiber punch! A great home made classic perfect for after school snacks with some cut up fruit :) Enjoy and comment if you try them!
