Easy and Healthy Banana Oat Muffins

This is a great muffin recipe that can be made gluten-free if needed by using gluten-free oats. I make these muffins almost every week to take in my lunch. It is a great way to get more nuts in your diet. Just a few ingredients and you have a delicious snack or breakfast. If you use almonds, sliced almonds work best. If you want the muffins to be more like a traditional muffin, you can process half of the oats in a food processor to make oat flour.

Ingredients:

  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped apples
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, or almonds)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats (not quick cooking)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (you can use Chinese 5 spice for a different flavor)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line 12 muffin tins with muffin paper or grease with canola oil.
  3. Mash bananas with a fork in a medium bowl.
  4. Add apples, nuts, and eggs to the bananas, mix well.
  5. In another bowl, mix dry ingredients.
  6. Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  7. Spoon the muffin mixture into muffin cups.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes.
  9. Place on a wire rack for cooling.
