I’m always looking for healthy, fiber-filled snacks to keep the family full during our long, active days. And when I can find recipes that use pantry ingredients, it’s a good thing for busy days!

In fact, I try to make a batch, or two, of muffins over the weekend, then freeze them for hectic weekday mornings.

Description

Banana Oat Muffins… a healthy pantry staple recipe to have on hand for busy mornings. Reminiscent of its cousin and comfort food classic, banana bread, these muffins are quick, hearty and filling. A perfect option for breakfast, snacks or brown bag lunches.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (see note)
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup banana, mashed (23 bananas)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Use cooking spray to prepare a 12-cup muffin tin.

In a medium bowl combine egg, brown sugar, mashed banana, milk, and oil. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients: flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.

Spoon batter into prepared cups. (I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter into the cups).

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and a tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.


Notes

  • If you have whole wheat flour on hand, I like to add 1 cup all-purpose flour with 1 cup whole wheat flour.
