Banana Oat Muffins

We decided to have banana muffins for breakfast this morning and I LOVE this recipe but wanted to try something new - I haven't had the chance to make many new things lately; we've been eating mostly "familiar" foods and I was looking forward to trying something new!

This is one I've had in my Recipe Folder on allrecipes.com for awhile so I figured we'd give it a try! The muffins came out pretty good - though I would definitely add about 1/4 cup brown sugar next time; it needed a little more sweetness. I used Stevia in place of sugar and used self-rising flour instead of AP flour, baking powder and baking soda. The texture was really nice - light and fluffy. The banana flavor wasn't very strong fresh from the oven, but I'm hoping it will develop some as the few we didn't eat at breakfast sit! Someone else commented that these freeze well, and would make a nice quick breakfast snack. 20 minutes was the perfect baking time in my oven - lightly browned on top and bottom.

  1. I look forward to giving this a try. I have a few bananas in my freezer then went too ripe for our liking and have been waiting for ways to use them!
