Back in Black-Berry Banana Oat Muffins

These wonderful muffins are the perfect on-the-go breakfast. They are filling, flavorful, and fruity. I like to make these using a myriad of berries, anything from raspberries and blueberries to strawberries and Marion berries... Enjoy! 

2 mashed bananas
1 1/2 cup yogurt ( I like to use vanilla flavored )
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
4 tsp baking powder
3 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup frozen blackberries ( You can also use other berries ) 

Preheat oven to 375

In a large bowl combine mashed banana, yogurt, brown sugar, egg and oil.

Add oats and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes then combine the dry ingredients.

Although Old Fashioned Oats provide more fiber, quick oats will absorb moisture faster so they work best in baking. 

Add the blackberries and dry ingredients to wet and stir until just combined.

Scoop into a paper lined muffin tin and bake for 15-20 minutes or until tops are firm to touch.

Best served slightly warm with a nice glass of fresh squeezed Orange Juice!
