Ingredients: (makes 11 muffins)
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 2 egg whites
- 1 1/2 slightly brown bananas, mashed
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, loosely patted
- 2 Tbsp reduced-fat peanut butter
- 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
- cinnamon (to taste)
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, saving the chia seeds for the last second as a mix in (if not they can begin to form a gel with any liquid, causing your batter to become a little too thick or stiff). Evenly distribute batter into pre-greased muffin liners. Bake on 350 for about 10 minutes. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes and enjoy while still slightly warm!
