Oats-banana-blueberry muffins

I have been trying different tastes to satisfy my little handsome and this is one of those trials, and i can say this as toddler friendly, as my LO loved them - purpose fulfilled!
This recipe yielded 14 medium muffins.

2 bananas
1 egg
1/4 cup oats
1/3 cup whole milk ( u can even use 2%milk)
1/4 cup oats ( i used regular instant oats)
4 oz yoplait yogurt (yes, flavoured yogurt added additional flavor and gud moisture) - i used strawberry flavor
1.5 cup wheat flour
Brown sugar 2 tbsp
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup blueberries
5 tbsp butter

I always rinse oats with plain water, you can skip this if you dont want. Keep aside.
Mash the bananas. Add eggs and whisk the mixture. 

Add the yogurt, warm milk, sugar, melted butter, rinsed oats, flour and mix well. Add the baking soda at the end and then add blueberries, mix well.
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Meanwhile, pour the batter in muffin pan (muffin liners are optional), bake for 25 mins or well done.
A simple fork test is good to test if it is done - if the fork comes out clean, means muffins are done.
Let the muffins cool down a few minutes before serving your little ones.
By the way, forgot to tell you - i made these for breakfast, but you can even pack them as snack.


Its been a while and i update this post with a few changes.
I am soo excited! Finally found something perfect yet healthy snack for my sweet tooth - yes granola! Found couple of videos but ended up preparing my own as per my tastebuds. Could not wait to share my simple recipe with these ingredients 
Extra thick rolled oats - 3 cups
Brown sugar - i measured it as 1/8 th cup for each cup of oats. Since i took 3 cups of oats, i used 3-1/8 th cups of brown sugar.
Maple syrup - 5 tbsp
Black raisins - 1/2 cup (optional)
Cranberries - 1/4 cup ( optional)
Canola oil - 5 tbsp (replacing with butter tasted better but count on the fat as well 😊)
Nuts - walnuts, pecans, almonds ( i measured 1/4 th cup  for each kind)
1. Take oats, nuts, cranberries in a mixing bowl.
2. Chop ur nuts either with hands or in a chopper, mix them together with #1.
3.  Take oil, maple syrup and sugar in a bowl and simmer it for 2 mins until sugar melts.(at the end, i felt this step might not be needed as it sits in oven for a while)
No need of step 3.
4. Pre heat oven to 325 F.( more or less based on ur oven).
5. Mix well all the ingredients except black raisins in a big bowl.

6. Grease a pan with some oil/ butter if u like and spread the mixture on the pan.
7. Bake in oven for 35 mins, stirring 3 times every 12 mins or so. 

8. Add the black raisins after 24 mins, give it a nice stir and keep it back in the oven. Make sure to stay safe while stirring occassionally - u can take out the pan, stir and put it back in the oven.
After 35 mins, take out the pan, let it cool down and transfer to an air tight container..
I have to see how long it stays fresh for my parfait.

You can have it either with milk for breakfast or with yogurt for snack.
So, here it is my yummy snack is ready
