Healthy Banana Oat Muffins

I'm always looking for ways to change breakfast up.  I have noticed that when I eat something with alot of protein, paired with a healthy carbohydrate, I don't get hungry all morning.  This muffin is extremely good for lacking butter, oil, flour, and alot of sugar.  I plugged all my ingredients into a recipe nutrition website to calculate the value of one muffin:

Calories: 110
Fat: 2g
Protein: 5g

Not bad, right?  I made a batch, and froze them.  Whenever you are ready to eat, defrost at room temperature or put into the microwave.  My kids loved them, and they will be a great snack/breakfast on the run. 
Do NOT over cook these babies.  I removed them just as soon as the top was softly set.

Healthy Banana Oat Muffins

2 1/2 c old fashioned oats
2 bananas, ripened and mashed
2 eggs
1/3 c brown sugar
2 tbs honey
3/4 c non-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbs vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 320 degrees.  Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray, and set aside.  In a food processor or blender place the oats, and process until the oats turn into a powder.  Add all of the other ingredients into the food processor or blender, and blend until mixture is smooth.  Divide batter between the 12 muffin tins.  (I had enough batter for 14 muffins).  Bake for 20-25 minutes, or just until set.  Cool, and store in the freezer until ready to eat.
