Sunday sweets – Banana Oat muffins

Posted on: April 18th, 2010 by admin 6 Comments

You know when you want to bake, but you only have certain ingredients in the house?  So you come up with some mix of recipes you think might work.  I knew you couldn’t go to wrong with bananas and oats, but it’s still great when you make up a recipe and it’s a success.  We’ve made these a few times now and the muffins have worked perfectly each time! They are particularly delicious for healthy breakfasts on the run or as an afternoon snack to fill the void ’till dinner.

  • 1 1/2 c self-raising flour (or plain flour with 1 1/2 tsp baking powder)
  • 1/2 c caster sugar
  • 1 c natural yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 c vegetable oil
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 2/3 c oats
  • 2 tsp maple syrup

Preheat oven to 180ºC (350ºF) and grease or line a 12 cup muffin tin.

Mix the flour, oats and sugar into a bowl. In another bowl combine yogurt, egg, oil, syrup and mashed banana in a large bowl. Gradually add the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.Spoon mixture into muffin holes.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Stand muffins in the pan for 5 minutes. Then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Serve warm or cold, but do make sure to eat them fast (within 2-3 days) or refrigerate them, otherwise the yogurt in them may go sour.

    Yes please! We always love new recipes. Scones are the best (literally eating them right now) but you know banana breads- can’t have enough. XO

    So glad you tried them! They’re not bad hey? You can always leave out the oats if you have none and actually there is a banana bread recipe from a while ago that’s good too. (Just type banana in search) XO

    Any idea how many calories in one of these? Love them!! Added sunflower seeds, flax seed meal and changed yogurt to my non-dairy sour cream. Also used mostly applesauce with a little olive oil. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Hi Chris! Lovely of you to write your modifications! I will be trying this myself soon! Unfortunately I don’t know the calories, But it sounds like if you used non-dairy sour cream and applesace with olive oil, along with the flax seed meal – your count will be fairly low. Thanks for reading!
