{Ridiculously Easy} Banana Oat Greek Yogurt Muffins

My Daughter and I- {Ridiculously Easy} Banana Oat Greek Yogurt Muffins

Most of the time, when a recipe says that the prep time is 5 minutes, I don’t really believe it. Between measuring and mixing, baking almost always takes longer than I expect.

These muffins really do have a 5 minute prep time though- they are incredibly simple and fast, and they turned out super delicious! An extra bonus is how healthy they are- totally breakfast material 😉

{Ridiculously Easy} Banana Oat Greek Yogurt Muffins 

1 cup plain Greek yogurt

2 ripe bananas

2 eggs

2 cups rolled oats (old fashioned or quick)

¼ cup brown sugar

1½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. baking soda

½ cup chocolate chips, mini or regular

Preheat oven to 400* and prepare a muffin pan with paper liners. Spray inside of liners thoroughly.
Beat all ingredients together except for chocolate chips until oats are broken down and batter is smooth and creamy. Stir in chocolate chips.
Pour batter into prepared muffin pan, filling each cavity until it is about ¾ full.  Sprinkle a few chocolate chips over the top of each muffin if you’d like.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the tops of your muffins are golden brown and set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Fashion Friday- We Skipped Spring

Easter Breakfast Casserole

easter breakfast casserole 1

Easter is such a great holiday and such a wonderful time of year! We often go to a sunrise church service and by the time we get home, we are all ready for a delicious breakfast. This breakfast casserole is so simple and delicious and we all love it! At Christmas time, this recipe was our most popular post ever and I can understand why.

You mix the casserole up and leave it in the refrigerator overnight and then pop it in the oven the next morning. We serve ours with fruit and either muffins or cinnamon rolls. Listed below are a few of our favorite breakfast sweets. Enjoy your Easter!
