Love at First Bite

Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

Who among us doesn’t like to snack? Me, I snack all the time. Sometimes I snack so much I don’t even eat meals. I should have listened more to my mother about not spoiling my appetite with junk food when I was younger. It wouldn’t be so bad expect for a majority of my snacks are unhealthy. I am always looking for quick easy snacks that are both healthy and filling so once I eat them I won’t spoil any more of my meals.


I can across these banana chocolate chip oatmeal muffins and decided to try them. Instant love at first bite. Not only are these muffins amazing in taste but they are good for you! I like to eat one before I exercise because it gives me just enough energy to work out and keeps me full the whole time. They are also just a get snack to have around for whenever! Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
