Whole Wheat Banana Oatmeal Muffins
{Muffin Monday}

This week's muffin is a re-post from January 2011 -- our 2nd ever Muffin Monday post. AnnaLynn was only 10 years old back then! Funny how the subtle changes that come with the passing of years aren't so obvious until we take a look at an old youngest is growing up. Sigh.

But back to today's muffin.

These are a terrific way to use up a few over-ripe bananas that might be sitting in your fruit basket. We're working on a soaked version of these and will share once we get that worked out. In the meantime, go ahead and bake up a batch of these nourishing muffins, and if you don't have any over-ripe bananas, wait a couple days until you do. :)

Whole Wheat Banana Oatmeal Muffins
makes 12 - 18 muffins

1.5 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1 c. rolled oats
1/3 c. cane sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. sea salt
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. melted butter
1/4 c. milk (raw is best)
3 over-ripe bananas, smashed (about 1 c.)

Pre-heat oven to 400F and lightly grease muffin tin with coconut oil. Measure dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix together. Mix butter together with bananas in a medium bowl, stir in eggs and milk, mixing well. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened (don't over mix your muffins!); batter will be lumpy. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.

Bake 20 - 25 minutes.

Wait a few minutes before removing muffins to a cooling rack and then enjoy. Yes, with butter. :)

  1. MMmmm these look lovely. I am always looking out for healthier treats. I will try these really soon. Lily.

    1. Lily, I hope you do enjoy these! They're really, really good. :)
      Blessings, ~Lisa

  2. Butter is a given for me! It's kind of funny -- my daughter and I butter everything (it seems) and husband and son do not. Butter makes almost everything better in my opinion!

    1. Butter...yes, it does make everything better!
      Thanks for visiting, ~Lisa :)

  3. Yum!! These look amazing! Can goats milk be used for this too?
    Thanks for posting!

    1. I cannot imagine why goat's milk wouldn't work -- give it a try!
      Happy baking, ~Lisa :)

  4. The time really does go so's like we blink and our children grow up.

    These muffins sound delicious, Lisa! I love Banana muffins and I like that these have both whole wheat and oatmeal in them.

  5. These were really great. My husband and kids all loved them. I'm trying them again tonight with applesauce in place of the oil and sugar so we'll see how that goes.

    1. So glad you all liked these, Erin! Please let us know how the substitution worked out. :) Happy baking!


Thanks so much for visiting; your kind thoughts and questions are always welcome. :)
