The quest for acceptable holiday breakfasts continues. I've tried a few online recipes, and found many that are suitable, but the kids either get bored or find some issue with the results quite quickly. I don't want to compromise, and I want a handful of solutions that I can put on rotation. After a lot of trial and error, I came up with this iteration which is a mix of a couple of different recipes.
1 and a half cups of oats
2-3 tbsp of ground flax seed or similar (I used Aldi's ground linseed with raspberry and blueberry powder)
3 small brown bananas
3 tbsp smooth peanut butter (I used Whole Earth)
2tbsp coconut oil
half a cup of dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 180°C and lightly oil 10-12 silicon muffin cases.
Mash the bananas as smoothly as you can in a small bowl. Add the peanut butter and mix until well blended. Now add the coconut oil. If you've used a peanut butter that is even more natural and separated, you may not need as much or any coconut oil.
In a bigger bowl, mix the oats and the flax seed. You could add some chia as well if you like.
Stir through the choc chips.
Add the banana peanut butter mix and combine well. Divide between muffin cups and bake for 15 mins.
Remove when done, they should be browned and slightly crisp around the edges. Allow to cool for a few mins and then turn carefully onto a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container.
Serve with berries if liked.
