Banana Walnut Oatmeal Muffins

Banana Walnut Oatmeal Muffins

Banana and Oatmeal are my two go to ingredients when I want to make a healthy snack, breakfast or dessert. While both of them are low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol and Sodium, they are also a good source of Dietary Fiber and they are made for each other!

Here is a Banana Walnut Oatmeal Muffins recipe that includes all healthy ingredients including my favorite two. These came out great and since I have oatmeal fans at my house, next time I would like to reduce or replace the flour and use more of oatmeal.

You Need:

1 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup quick oats (I used Quaker)
1 tsp vanilla essence
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1 cup bananas (ripe banana mashed about 2)
1/4 cup oil
1 egg
1/4 cup chopped Walnuts
1/4 cup chocolate chips (of your choice, optional)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400.
    Grease a muffin pan or use muffin liners .
    In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder and soda.
    In another bowl stir together vanilla, oats and yogurt, stirring in banana, oil, walnuts and chocolate chips .
    Stir mixture into flour mixture and stir until moistened.
    Put in muffin pans and bake for 20- 25 minute until done.
