1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Steps:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lined a cupcake pan with muffin papers. In a medium bowl, combine oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk and set aside.

2. In a separate medium bowl, combine the wet ingredients; honey, egg whites, milk, mashed banana and vanilla. Mix well with a whisk or mixer. Once combined, add wet mixture to dry mix and gently mix until combined. With a spatula, fold in blueberries.

3. With an icecream scoop or a large teaspoon, divide mixture evenly between cupcake cavities. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes and the enjoy!

*****You can also use my favorite type of baking tray, silicone shaped trays!! You just lightly grease them and the muffins will pop right out when the are cool. I bought mine in the Target dollar section:)
