#65 Healthy Banana Oat Muffins

So I noticed my freezer was starting to get pretty full...of overripe bananas...which may sound ridiculous, but I was excited because that meant I had to try a new recipe. (Yes, I had to, I had no choice...)

The result was these awesome and healthy banana oat muffins. They're super easy, with minimal ingredients, and I love the sweet flavors from the banana and coconut.

I haven't tried them with quick oats, but I think quick oats would be just fine in these. I used rolled/old-fashioned oats, and they turned out great. They are perfectly chewy, soft and flavorful.

This is a quick, 30-minute treat everyone will love, perfect for kids and adults. My brother scarfed down two of these in less than two minutes, so I took that as a good sign. (I may or may not have done the same thing right before him.)

If you have a freezer full of bananas just yearning to be used in some yummy recipe, try these! I wish I had made more - these disappeared instantly. Enjoy!
