Breakfast Banana Oat Muffins
As we all know, Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I know as an adult breakfast just seems like something that takes up time most days so we eat it on the go. But Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. It gives us the energy that we need and sets us up for what lies ahead. It puts us on track to make the best of our day. SERIOUSLY. I'm not just being preachy.
When we have a proper breakfast, we are ready to take on the WORLD. We aren't as grumpy, we aren't as agitated, and we don't snap at people as much (sometimes you just can't help annoying co worker LOL). I know you think that the coffee and bagel that you are eating on the run is what is giving you the energy that you need, And I know you feel that you can't be around people unless you have your cup of coffee. But none of that is true.
The thing is it has nothing to do with the coffee. I know some of you are going to be made at me but I wouldn't lie to you. You can get the boost of caffeine that you are looking for from a cup of green tea. Soooooo, what makes you able to talk to people after you drink you caffeine, its you finally putting something in your body that it can run off you. You finally gave your body some fuel.
Give me a second to get off my soap box LOL. Now we were talking about some things that get you through the morning in this post here from Monday. So, To help you out a little more, I have a some wonderful Breakfast Banana Oat Muffins for you to make. The best part about these is that they last a couple of days, if you don't share *wink wink*

3/4 cup egg whites
1/2 c low fat Greek Yogurt
3/4 c rolled oats
2 scoops of vanilla whey protein powder

1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
4 tbs Greek Yogurt
What You'll Need to Do:
Preheat the oven to 350 and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix away, To be even classier, add all of the ingredients to a BLENDER and go to town. Once everything is nice an smooth, add to the muffin tin (12 muffin cups). Bake for about 17 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. You can top the muffins with the additional 4 tbs of Greek Yogurt to be fancy.
