Happy Friday everyone! (It’s Friday, right? All my days are blurring together this week! )
Thank you so much for all of your kind comments on Reese’s birth story! We are continuing to adjust to life with a newborn and a toddler. Each day and night has its new adventures and challenges, but I continue to feel so fulfilled and happy through it all. We are blessed! Cody has off work this week which has been a tremendous help. I’m already feeling a little anxious about how next week will go as he’ll be back to work and I’ll be on my own with both kids, but I’m continuing to remind myself to just take one day at a time.
Today we’re switching gears from all things baby to a yummy fall recipe and a giveaway to go along with it! I am honored to be part of Peanut Butter & Co.’s Yum Squad, and this month we are partnering with Bob’s Red Mill to bring you #Oatober! Oats has to be one of my top favorite pairings to go along with peanut butter, so I was excited to come up with a recipe that includes Bob’s Red Mill Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats and Peanut Butter & Co. Peanut Butter. I instantly thought of about a dozen different possibilities, but my mind kept turning back to dense, oat filled, peanut buttery muffins.
This is where I bring you Maple Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins! These muffins have that comfort food feel while still being nutritious and filling. They are a perfect snack or pairing to your breakfast during the chilly fall days ahead!
Maple Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins
- 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Maple Peanut Butter
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a muffin pan or use muffin liners. Use a hand mixer to mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 of the way full with the batter. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until muffins are fully set. Cool and enjoy!
And now for the giveaway I know you’re all eagerly awaiting! One of you fine lucky folks will win a prize pack that features a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats + a jar of Mighty Maple and White Chocolate Wonderful – two of my favorite Peanut Butter & Co. flavors.
