Banana Oat Muffins

    With Nana's wedding last weekend, we had some extra bodies in and out of the house.  I wanted to have a quick grab and go breakfast available to anyone who was hungry, but I didn't have a ton of time to put things together.  So as I was getting ready for the luncheon, I threw a batch of these in the oven.  They are healthy enough you don't have to feel bad about eating one, but still taste really good!
 


    You might think the whole wheat flour and oatmeal would make for a denser muffin, but you would be wrong.  These came out light, moist and delicious!  The ingredient list looks a little long, but I had them in the oven in less than ten minutes.  Breakfast was ready by the time everyone else woke up!

Banana Oat Muffins
makes 12 muffins

Ingredients:

3 ripe bananas
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Then stir in the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. 
  3. Mix in the oatmeal and cinnamon next.
  4. You can mix the rest of the dry ingredients in a separate bowl if you like, but I didn't want the dirty dishes.  So, I just put the flour on top of the wet ingredients, put the baking soda, powder on salt on top of that and kind of stirred it together.  Then I mixed in in with the wet ingredients underneath.
  5. Spoon into a greased muffin pan, or one lined with papers, and bake for 18-20 minutes.

  1. Hi Carlee, I like using olive oil to my baked goods, rather then butter. It has a way of making the baked goods taste better, seem lighter, healthier. I just happen to have two overly ripe bananas I was looking for just the right recipe to make. Can't wait to try yours! Have a great weekend!

    1. Isn't it funny how they take forever to ripen if you want to bake with them and ripen in an instant if you want to have them around for a while?! I hope you love these muffins.

    1. I hope you enjoy them. Bananas don't tend to last long around here, so it is a treat when they get good and brown and ready for baking! Thanks for hosting and stopping by!
