If there is one thing I hope everyone doing the Fresh Fit Kitchen Healthy Changes Challenge will learn, it is that you do not have to restrict everything to be healthy. Banishing the bloat, doesn’t have to mean not having treats in your life. It’s all about incorporating healthy sweets like these Peanut Butter Oat Banana Muffins. You can enjoy these for breakfast or as a dessert. They are healthy enough for both. Tasty enough to satisfy that sugar craving.
The peanut butter banana combo has been around for along time. It’s the perfect portable yummy treat. I use King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour in this recipe. I find this one to be light and airy. The texture of my baked good doesn’t suffer when I use it. These would be good with some extra peanut butter spread on or a bit of butter.
Everything in Moderation
The reason I don’t like plans that cut everything is that it’s unrealistic. Honey, oats, whole grains and even chocolate have a place in our diets. Balance will get you so much further than a life of eating the same thing over and over or being miserable. A life without chocolate is misery after all.
So make a batch of these muffins and grab one when you run out the door for breakfast or enjoy it as an after dinner treat. 🙂
If you make these please tag me on Instagram @FreshFitKitchen. I love to see your creations.
