Banana Oat Muffins

My wonderful neighbor has been under the weather, and with the frigid temps that we've been experiencing, recovery is likely uninspired. I feel relatively healthy and sprite and even I have been using the excuse, "It's just too cold" for everything. Little man and I have been huddled around the space heater dreaming of warmer days.

So, in an act of neighborly goodness and in an effort to further warm the house, I cranked the oven to 400º and got baking. I would have been content to whip up confections all day, but my little guy is only content for about 12 minute clips, so I chose Banana Oat Muffins for their healthy deliciousness.

Note: I also made a batch for myself. I am not longer eating Paleo since it was not agreeing with me. But I am still off processed foods and have a very limited amount of dairy and gluten in my diet. I will make a gluten exception for homemade muffins.
