Fruit & Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins

These grab and go muffins are super tasty and filling. They're chock full of good for you stuff like oats, bananas, apples, and raisins. This is a great recipe to use if you're looking to use up some ripe bananas like I was! I took some liberty with the recipe from Eat Good 4 Life and added some vanilla and left out the nuts because I didn't have any. I also left the skin on my apples because I like the color and texture of it. Overall they turned out great and will make a good breakfast for the next few days. Enjoy!

  1. Looks delicious! How many muffins does this make?

  2. Thanks! It made one dozen for me and I filled the cups all the way to the top.

  3. I made them last night and it made 16 muffins. I filled them almost to the top. Maybe my muffin tin is smaller than Brandi's :)

  4. YUM - I made a dozen yummy muffins for a co-workers birthday and a meeting we had this morning & everyone loved them (and no one felt guilty eating them and ruining their healthy day)... thanks!!
