Something For Saturday: Healthy No-Bake Muffins

A little something for Saturday.

During one of the commercials between Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, while I was drifting in and out of the room, but always within ear shot, I heard the words, “healthy snack” and “no-bake” and hit rewind.  I adapted this short and simple recipe by taking out the shredded coconut and raisins and adding dark chocolate chips in their place.  These are satisfying and just the right amount of sweet.  Completely filling while still the ideal size for snacking.  And with healthy ingredients and no need for the oven, this will be a recipe we make over and over again.

1.  In a bowl, mash up one sliced banana with a fork.  Add the instant oatmeal to the bananas and mix together.  Spoon in the strawberry preserve and the chocolate chips and stir some more until all oats are coated.

2.  Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray (this recipe made 5 muffins).  Transfer the mixture into your muffin tins and top with a scoop of almond butter.  Garnish with a fresh strawberry half.

3.  Refrigerate overnight.
