Banana Oat Muffins

Saturday mornings, my family likes to enjoy muffins or something new. This morning, I woke up to my daughter saying she didn’t feel too good. I asked her if she was in the mood for anything in particular and she said “banana muffins sound yummy”, so that’s what mama made! These banana oat muffins were simple to make, allowed me to use up some of the bananas that were getting ready to get thrown in the freezer due to being “too brown” (that is what my kids call it, haha), and most of all, these muffins are not too bad for you! These were the perfect Saturday morning breakfast!!

2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 tbsp coconut oil (you can use canola oil if desired)
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 cup sugar
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Muffin liners or cooking spray
In a bowl, mix together the bananas, coconut oil, egg, milk, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and stir until just combined. Line a muffin tray with liners or cooking spray. Scoop mix into muffin cups about 2/3 high. You should be able to fill up 12 muffin cups. Place in a preheated oven, 375, and bake for about 17-19 minutes, or until slightly golden brown and toothpick comes out clean when inserted in middle. Remove from oven and enjoy! Store in an airtight container!
