I'm always looking for new ways to use up bananas. Now that my dad knows I bake a lot with bananas, he's now bringing all his ripe ones for me to use. I followed GodivaGirl's lead and cut back on the flour, as she thought it was too thick. I did half a cup of wheat and half a cup of white. I added in a half teaspoon of salt and a little bit of nutmeg. End result was a moist, flavorful banana muffin. I think if I were to make these again, some chopped walnuts would make these perfection. Super fast to throw together tonight as to have less of a hassle for Sunday breakfast. I plan on pairing it with a fresh fruit salad.


Good banana and oat flavor, but a bit dry. First off, I'm sure it's a misprint but I put in 1 WHOLE egg, instead of a tablespoon of egg! I subbed canola oil for vegetable oil, 1 cup of all purpose flour in place of 2 cups of wheat flour. For some who may not know rolled oats are old-fashioned oats, not quick cooking. Finally, I added 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed. The batter was very thick, filled my paper liners 3/4's of the way full. My muffins cooked in 20 minutes and I got 14 muffins. Next time I will try applesauce in place of the oil and maybe a handful of chopped walnuts.


I made this recipe with one cup white flour instead of any wheat; one cup quick oats instead of slow-cooking; 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce. It was really good, especially considering the reduction in oil.
