Banana Whole Grain Muffins

Brady cooks breakfast every day.  Let me rephrase that, he cooks a gourmet, New Orleans French Quarter restaurant breakfast every single day. I generally instagram a picture of breakfast and then act like it is my creation (ha) but the secret's out now! On the weekends I try to pick up some of the breakfast slack and tend to try out new recipes on him. I was craving muffins in a bad way so I decided to make a healthy recipe that would last us throughout the week using some very ripe bananas and some whole grain ingredients even though we generally eat Paleo on weekdays. These muffins aren't made with any oil or butter so they are low in fat and a light alternative to normal baked goods.

Banana Whole Grain Muffins with a drizzle of honey. Yum!

Here is your cast of characters:
2 Cups Cheerios (I had multi-grain in the pantry) 
1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Whole Oats
1 Tablespoon Ground Flaxseed
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
Pinch of salt
1 Egg White
2/3 Cup Milk

First measure out your cheerios and crunch up in the bowl, then add all other dry ingredients, mix thoroughly.

Add your wet ingredients to the bowl and mix on low speed with an electric mixer until incorporated. 

Spoon into a muffin tin fitted with paper liners and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Be sure to enjoy your yummy muffins with baked eggs caprese style, fresh Arkansas strawberries and a yummy homemade latte with vanilla cinnamon whipped cream.

Happy Monday friends!
