Gluten Free Banana Oat Muffins

Our mornings are usually pretty busy. We wake up early and run around trying to get ourselves ready and get Ryan ready for preschool. I make a cup of coffee and only drink about half, then forget it on the ironing board or in the bathroom. I don't know about you, but I NEVER finish a cup of hot coffee. I do try hard to prepare and make things that will help our mornings run smoothly...some times I'm on top of it and sometimes not.
This week I was able to throw together some muffins that the whole family could grab and go! I switched up my go to banana bread recipe and made a quick breakfast I felt good about eating through out the week. Below is the recipe...Enjoy!



What You Need

:: muffins ::
-3 brown spotted bananas
-2 eggs
-1 1/2 cup gluten free flour (if you use regular flour, only use 1 cup)
-1 cup raw sugar
-3/4 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp cinnamon
-pinch of nutmeg
-1/2 cup melted butter
-1 tsp vanilla

:: muffin topping ::
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-1 cup gluten free oats.



What You Do
-Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
-Mix dry ingredients and set aside
-Mash up bananas
-Mix in eggs, butter and vanilla into the banana mash
-Slowly mix in dry ingredients
-Scoop into muffin pan
-Mix together the brown sugar and oats then top each muffin. Make sure to press the oats into muffin batter. I liked to really load the top so the muffins can be a tad more filling.
-Bake muffins for 10-15 minutes.

See, I told you they are beyond easy. These yummy muffins last up to a week, as long as they are kept sealed.






 I'm always looking for new grab and go breakfast items. Do you have any other quick and easy breakfast ideas?

    I heard your story through someone who knows someone who knows someone and I'm up late tonight, my heart grieving for a family and a precious boy I don't even know who had touched my heart today as though I've known him his whole life. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. May comfort find you during this terrible time. You are held tight in my thoughts and prayers.

    I don't know you, but I have spent my entire day thinking about and praying for you. It is unimaginable what you must be going through right now, and I am heartbroken for your sweet family. Your darling boy made so many lives brighter and it is clear to anyone who follows you that your love for him was enormous and unconditional and something really, really special. We are praying for you and hoping you can find peace.

    You have been in my constant prayers and thoughts for the past few days. Praying that God will cover you with His peace and comfort and give you rest.Psalm 147:3 He heals the broken hearted, binding up their wounds.

    I am so sorry for your loss. As a mom, my heart goes out to you and I cannot even begin to image what you are going through right now. Your family is in my heart and prayers and I cried when I read this story on Alissa's blog.

    I too want to offer my support. I cannot imagine what your pain and loss must feel like. Please know that the world is full of good people who hurt when you hurt-even if they don't know you. Its nice that you have this blog and have documented so much of the love and life of your sweet little boy. I hope in time looking through the pictures and archives will give you peace.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this most difficult time. I do not know you. Only know that someone I follow on IG posted about your loss. It breaks my heart that anyone should have to go through this. Know that many are grieving with you. May the Lord's arms surround you and your family during this time.

    I heard of youe loss through another blog post (The NieNie Dialogues) I want you to know that I am thinking of you and sending prayers to our Father in Heaven for the comfort I know he can provide through the Holy Ghost. Know that this life is not the end, you will have that read-headed boy to wrap your arms around again.

    So very sorry for your loss. What a trite phrase to read from a stranger but maybe knowing that there's one more mom of a little boy whose heart breaks for you may bring some comfort. May God grant you moments of the peace that passes understanding amidst your grief.
