|Healthy peanut butter oatmeal muffins with chia seeds|
I'm happy to report we made it through the first week of school. And with very few tears, at that! My second grader got to school and bolted off to meet her friends on the playground with nary a glance in my direction. My kindergartener, on the other hand, looked at me with big doe eyes filled with a mix of excitement of nervousness about a new classroom, new school, and new friends.
To celebrate the first week, we made these luscious peanut butter, oatmeal, chia, and chocolate chip muffins. As usual, they are free of refined sugar, and easy to make vegan and gluten-free if needed. These muffins are higher protein and fiber than most, thanks to peanut butter, oats, and chia - so they are extra filling and nourishing. So much different the the sugar laden grocery store muffins. They are a snap to make - and start to finish take about 25 minutes.
