Life as MOM has launched a new blog: Good (& Cheap) Eats. When she posted these Maple Banana Oat Muffins the other day, I knew I had to try them. For one, I am a sucker for streusel topping. For another, I'm a sucker for muffins - they are my favorite snack to have on hand for the girls. They're portable, they hide fruit (or veggies) easily, and the girls never turn them down. I had one very ripe banana, so I only made a half batch - but these are delicious!
The maple flavoring combines with something, I'm not sure what, but they have this wonderful buttery flavor, and frankly taste like I'm eating a pancake loaded with butter and syrup. And that is a very good thing!
