When you need a quick low-calorie breakfast on the run

Work. Kids. Work. Life is busy.

When I have to rush off in the morning, I like to have a stash of muffins already frozen that I can grab and run out the door. These little gems do the trick, not only are they delicious… check. Nutritious… check. They are only 168 calories each… bonus!

I always fall back on my go-too breakfast flavour combo – banana and almond butter. Love, love, love it! It’s totally a winner in this Double Almond Breakfast Smoothie, so going back to it for a super healthy grab-and-go muffin was a natural!

Skinny  Banana Oat Muffins_2 As with most of my recipes, I like to keep the ingredient list simple and preparation time fast. These muffins totally fit that formula, coming together in a snap. Easy peasy.

Skinny  Banana Oat Muffins_1 Now here’s the pay off… only 168 calories! NEWS FLASH… I’m going to try an include a nutrition box on all my recipes going forward. Several of my readers have made this request, so I’m happy to finally be adding that feature. I won’t bother on dessert and cake recipes, let’s forget about calories for a special treat.

Great muffins. Low calories. Enjoy!
