Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins

Breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, but for some reason it’s the hardest for me to sit down and actually eat! We’ve been living on the go the last couple of weeks with my husband finishing up his last semester of school. He’s out the door by 7am and doesn’t get back until after dinner. I wanted to make sure he was getting enough to eat before he started his busy day, but I was not about to wake up at 6am to make a full breakfast!

I love these breakfast muffins because they are full of natural ingredients, and I know they’ll keep him full for the whole morning! Not to mention, I do not mind my house smelling this delicious. We added in a few chocolate chips to give them a true breakfast muffin taste and they turned out perfect!

    • We have only used coconut oil when making these muffins. I googled it to find some options for you. I did find this information, but no sure how well it will work. You may need to experiment with it. -Coconut oil is a solid at room temperature, like butter, so I'd probably substitute melted butter (or solid butter, if it seems to want solid coconut oil) for it to get the most similar result. Otherwise, try using canola oil and see what happens. It'll probably still work, but have a different texture and crumb. Muffin recipes are pretty forgiving.-
