Pumpkin Oat Banana Mini Muffins


Fall is most definitely here! With all the food bloggers are posting their favorite pumpkin recipes, I thought I'd share one of our new favorites. Well to be honest, I've only had a taste but if I was allowed to go nuts on carbs, I'd go nuts eating these!

These muffins freeze really well too so I froze half the batch for Molly to enjoy as snacks later. I like to keep a stash of frozen mini muffins on hand for when her usual snacks of goldfish, raisins and cheese sticks get boring (which happens a lot). While I made these as mini muffins, I think these would also be great as big, huge muffins. Just know that you will have to cook them longer, maybe 20-25 minutes instead of 15.
