Strawberry Banana Oat Muffins with Almonds

Yum

Last night was the Super Bowl... the Baltimore Ravens won and my husband is over the moon happy.  We had a Super Bowl party with all the fixings from pizza, chicken wings, bratwurst sausages, loads of dips and sweet treats.  Now it's time to get back on track and refocus on eating more healthy meals.  The way to start the day is with these healthy strawberry banana oat muffins.  My kids and husband loved these muffins and they were full of goodness.  They thought they were still indulging in some guilty treats... but they were indulging in healthy treats instead.  I call this one a touchdown when it comes to muffins.

Ingredients:

Dry Ingredients:
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup oats
small pinch of salt
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sliced almonds

Wet Ingredients:
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup apple sauce
2 mashed ripe bananas
2 cups diced strawberries

Garnish:
Sliced almonds


Directions:
Combine all the dry ingredients in one bowl.  Combine all the wet ingredients in another bowl.  Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the well mixed wet ingredients.  Bake in a well greased muffin pan at 375 degress for 17-20 minutes.  Enjoy.
