Healthy Eating And Oatmeal Muffins!

My mother has always been the "head chef" of the house for as long as I can remember. My father has a knack for cooking as well, but mom's always been in charge. I can't remember a time when I haven't sat at my kitchen table chatting with my mom while she cooked or baked for my family and I. Because I had a so-to-say "personal chef", I never had an urge to learn how to cook before I reached my twenties. In the past couple of years I've acquired a strong yearning to learn how to provide a delicious meal for myself and my loved ones. I've also become a strong supporter of healthy eating, and incredibly knowledgeable on what is going into my body and how it will affect it. In college, I did my fair amount of research on the difference between GMO'S (Genetically Modified Organisms), artificial ingredients, pesticides, preservatives, and all natural, organic, and raw foods. Now, I'm a fashion major not a health major, so I'm no expert. I only delved into the subject for the purpose of improving my own well being, and the healthy habits in my home. To wrap this all up, I'd like to share with you my own healthy recipe experiences for all those fellow health nuts and food enthusiasts! Maybe I can help to improve the quality of someone else's diet as well! Here's a recipe I found for banana oatmeal breakfast muffins, and step-by-step pictures of my baking trial! 

Try using some organic ingredients like the bananas, oats, or applesauce! 
 
Fill the cups slightly higher than shown. The muffins hardly rise when baked.   
Some other toppings you could use could be blueberries, chocolate chips, or dried cranberries!  
I found that if you bake them for 5 extra minutes than the recipe, they come out much better! 
 
The recipe makes 18 scrumptious muffins. Time to enjoy!
