ingredients

Instructions to make banana muffins with oats:

Preheat oven 350 degrees and prep your cupcake pans.

I love using my food processor but with this recipe you can use a mixer or even blend by hand. In a large bowl mash up those bananas, you can decide the consistency you like. I prefer to leave a little banana chunk in there but nice and smooth works great too. Add in you butter, sugar, beaten egg, oj and vanilla.

wet-mix

In a separate bowl mix up your dry ingredients; flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add your flour mix to the banana mixture and blend well.

In a small bowl mix all the topping ingredients; oatmeal, walnuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon. (This step is perfect for little hands to help!

topping

Fill your prepared cupcake about ½-¾ of the way. Sprinkle topping on each muffin about 1 tbsp.

prebake

Bake for 1 hr. Cool on rack.

Enjoy anytime!
