I don’t know about you, but as much as I  love my children to eat oatmeal for breakfast, I am  not a fan of the way it inevitably ends up crusted on little shirts and matted into fine hair. (Especially as we are rushing to walk out the door for school.) When  my “little helper” was home sick, we concocted this solution: Oatmeal…In a Cupcake! It worked out great…He ate FOUR. You can serve them with a little spoon. You can also put them in a large ziplock bag and have them througout the week, heating them in the microwave for 35-45 seconds. Ta Da!
Here’s What You Need: (Makes about 10)

1.5 cups quick oats
2.5 cups of water
2 TBS flour
2 ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
4 tsps 100% Maple Syrup
1/4 tsp salt

Here’s What You Do:Preheat the oven to 400. Microwave the water, oats, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp cinnamon for 1.5 minutes. Stir to blend.  In a separate bowl beat the bananas, the vanilla, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 4 tsp of maple syrup, and 1/8 tsp salt. Stir in the flour until well blended. Pour into the the oat mixture. Fill cupcake liners about 3/4 full and add them to the cupcake pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Big fan…

Kid Tip:
None needed! These are targeted right for them, but for you–they are skinny and easy too :).
