We used to make this quite often , I made this recipe about 3 years ago when we started switching our focus to a healthier food.
I would take this for breakfast on the go , bagged it n ate it after I dropped off my son to school . My husband likes them with yogurt too . Or just as a snack . The macros in this isn’t too bad in my opinion . If you’re on keto , this recipe probably won’t work for you .
Trying to make it healthier option , I opted for old fashioned oats . I don’t buy oat flour , I just use my magic bullet to grind this into flour consistency . I also added almond flour , or just grind up almond , this recipe is really not that fussy . If you don’t have almond flour , you just use oats , don’t have to make a special trip to the store for it . Especially during this difficult times , who needs extra trip just to get almond or almond flour . I’ve done with coconut flakes ground up too . Like I said not fussy . The macro obviously change as you replace few things .
No special equipment needed either , no mixer ? No problem . I don’t use it either , I just use whisk . The magic bullet is kinda a must or food processor might do it too . Otherwise it’ll be hard to grind up oats unless you buy the oat flour . Which kinda defeat the purpose in trying to make this recipe as simple and $$ saving as possible . You’ll need muffin liner n pan too . If you don’t have liner , use spray . I like the liner , less mess .
