Apple Peanut Butter Mini Muffins
"Lightened-up Apple Peanut Butter Mini Muffins are bursting with peanut butter flavor and bits of Granny Smith apples, banana nut oatmeal, and banana. No flour, sugar, or oil in these mini delights!"
NotesIf you don't have oat flour, you can process your own oat flour, by taking oats and pulsing them in a blender/food processor until they are a flour like consistency. Be sure to measure the oat flour after pulsing or the amounts will be off.
