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

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup banana, mashed (2-3 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.
