June is Men’s Health Month, and to help celebrate we have been gathering top tips on healthy snacks from some truly inspirational and talented men. This week we were lucky enough to catch up with the lovely Jon Weston-Stanely, AKA Healthy Jon! Jon is a health food and fitness blogger based in Henley, who also happens to play Touch Rugby for England.

He also runs a brilliant health and fitness blog called HealthyJon, to help inspire and assist you in living the healthiest life you can. We aren’t quite sure when he finds the time to do it all, but he shared with us one of his favourite ways to start the day – with some baked oat breakfast muffins. For a healthy snack, make an extra batch of these amazing treats.

Enjoy! If you like this recipe, you can find lots more here.

Makes: 12 muffins
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

3 cups oats
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 bananas
2 eggs
1 cup milk
¼ cup honey
¼ cup melted coconut oil
1 cup dark chocolate chips / blueberries / favourite dried fruit

Method

Preheat oven to 200º C.

In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, cinnamon and baking powder. Set aside.

Crack the 2 eggs into another bowl. Whisk with the honey and mashed banana.

Slowly whisk in the milk and melted coconut oil.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir.

Slowly stir in the chocolate chips or fruit.

Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray then divide the oatmeal mixture among the 12 muffins tins. Bake for 30 minutes or until the tops are golden.

Leave to cool for 5 minutes. Store in an air tight tin.

The only thing these Baked Oat Breakfast Muffins are missing is perhaps a little drizzle of dark chocolate over the top of them. Stack them tall and demolish them quickly before your family and friends finish them all.
