In February 2016, I was on a mission to eat clean. I was hunting for new recipes on the weekends. Taking my time at the grocery store to find the perfect ingredients. Cooking a few nights every week, trying new things and just experimenting with it all. There were a lot of misses. But a few hits that I’ve hung on to. Enter Blueberry Banana Oat Cups.
Thanks to Pinterest, I found a recipe for a nice little breakfast cup that didn’t need flour. Just bananas, egg, oats, vanilla, baking powder and fruit. That’s it.
Well this year I’m having to watch what I eat again. Not by choice though. I have a pesky ulcer that if fed incorrectly can make me feel like complete crap for a few days. (Don’t worry, I have medicine too. And a doctor who knows more about my insides than anything else about me.) So I’ve been more aware of what I’m putting in my body – and how much. And these Blueberry Banana Oat Cups have been a nice little save come breakfast time. But I’ve changed up the recipe a bit each time to just try something different.
I do like blueberries best, but fresh strawberries and peaches work nicely too. I like adding a little cinnamon and/or nutmeg depending on the fruit. I’ve even added mini chocolate chips. And nuts. Oh, and honey – these cups aren’t very sweet, but a little honey can go a long way. Hell, just drizzle honey on top right before you eat, that’s the best way to add honey.
I know how easy it is to pin a new recipe on Pinterest and forget about it. Or have a go at one and it be a huge fail. So I’m sharing this one so you know there is a winner! And it’s easy to swap out the fixings with things you may have in your pantry. Find the recipe here.
Update: I found another banana oat muffin recipe that I love! It has similar ingredients, but a completely different texture thanks to greek yogurt and the blender. Check out Blender Banana Oatmeal Muffins from Well Plated as well!
If you have any healthier option recipes that are winners, tell me! I like to try new things and really hope to share more recipes that I love on the blog. So point me in the direction to one that you love!
