Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

I found something my kids like that is healthy. And you know what, it is super good!

These muffins are quite impressive. There isn’t any added sugar, no flour, a lot of fiber from the oats, a lot of protein from the peanut butter, and two bananas.

This muffin recipe is a perfect little addition for your kids lunch or for an after school snack.
