Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins

Adapted from: Dashing Dish


  • 1-2 small ripe bananas, ripe, mashed
  • 3/4 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 cup plain low fat greek yogurt (I like Danon OIKOS vanilla)
  • 1 cup whole grain old fashioned oats (use gluten free if sensitive to gluten)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter (I use JIF natural creamy, you could also use almond butter)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

To Make:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray, or line with silicone or foil liners, (spray liners if using). I used regular paper muffins and my muffins didn't stick too bad, but make sure to use the foil liners and spray them with cooking or flour spray so they won't stick. 
2. Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix until mixture is smooth. 
3. Divide mixture evenly between 12 muffin tins. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

Enjoy, one or more! With just about 75 calories in each muffin, you can have more than one at a time, without any guilt!
