Yogurt and Banana Oatmeal Muffins

I combined elements from a couple of different muffin recipes then tweaked to fit my own definition of a healthy treat. The results were delicious...moist and flavorful! An added bonus is that these muffins are 100% whole grain and packed with fruit, yogurt and flax(not that my kids noticed any of that!). I ate mine split and spread with the Organic Superfruit Spread that I buy at Trader Joe's, which made for an extra-special treat. Perfect for after-school snacks and nutritious enough to serve for breakfast!
