Banana Oat Muffin Recipe – A New Fave


There are some favorites that I just can't keep to myself, and this recipe from the Prairie Heart Institute is so delicious (and nutritious) that even I, the non-kitchen diva, will gather the ingredients and make these for my crew.

These are perfect for breakfast on the go, with your morning cup of joe, or an afterschool snack.
