Banana Oatmeal Muffins
(12 servings) Printable Version
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, salt and allspice.
In a separate smaller bowl, cream butter and brown sugar together by hand until the texture is like wet-sand.
In a third bowl, beat the egg. Add milk and mix well.
Combine all three mixtures in the largest bowl. Mix well. Stir in the banana pieces.
Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown (start checking after 20 minutes). If a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out dry (no batter), the muffins are done.
This is a great recipe to use up over-ripe bananas. You can use regular milk if you don't have buttermilk.

I found this recipe in a quick internet search to surprise my kids this morning. They all 3 give it huge thumbs up! We like them 'as is' but I can see that raisins added in would be good, too.

I had some frozen bananas so I mashed them because defrosted they were too soft to cut. I also subbed nutmeg and cinnamon for the allspice, used white whole wheat flour instead of white flour, and used applesauce plus 1 T of butter for the butter, and cut back on the sugar. And I also used another suggestion and added raisins. These changes made for a healthier muffin, but also delicious!!

The muffins were maybe a little too sweet could use 1/2 c. brown sugar. Also, the were flat instead of rounded tops due to the "mixing very well" so, less mixing would be better. Nice and moist though.

Just tried making these. They are okay but I think it's due to the almost ripe bananas. Otherwise, I think it would be better. I think I'll add cinnamon powder instead and try mashed bananas although I do like the chuck ones as well.

I substituted half of the flour for whole wheat flour, mixed in 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed, and stirred in a cup of currants. My kids loved them!

Wonderful! Loved them... baked at 375 as suggested they were done in 20 minutes! Love the chunks of banana! (rather than mashed bananas!)

It makes edible muffins. Although I think they are too sweet, and the cooking time is too high. I would lower the sugar down by about 1/4 of a cup and lower the temp to 350 degrees F. I only had to cook mine at 375 for 20 min and the edges were a little too brown. I was using a no burn muffin tin if I hadn't they would have been burnt.
