If you read my blog or follow me on Facebook, you know that I’m a runner. I love to run! But after a hard 6 miles, I need to replenish my muscles. This muffin is the perfect solution. Oatmeal fills you up and bananas are sweet and the perfect after-workout food. The recipe for these is super easy, too, so if you do not like to bake or don’t bake often, try this one. It’s a great (kid friendly), healthy breakfast. So let’s get started…
What you will need:
For the batter:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 mashed, ripe bananas
(Feel free to add mini chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, or anything else to make these extra tasty!)
To make the batter:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In another large bowl (or bowl of your electric mixer), beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs and bananas and mix well. With a large spoon, mix in the flour mixture until just combined.
Spray muffin tin with a non-stick spray. Pour batter in about half full. Bake for about 17 minutes, until the tops of the muffins bounce back when pressed.
Remove muffins and place on a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
