When I noticed the bananas I bought turning a lovely shade of black, I knew it was muffin time! The batch is already gone and it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet. They have a really nice banana flavor, nice texture from the oats, and not super sweet but sweet enough (I find most muffin recipes use WAY too much sugar).

Ingredients

  • 3 very ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 C milk
  • 1/3 C canola oil
  • 1 C unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 C whole wheat flour
  • 1 C old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 C brown sugar, packed
  • 1 TSP ground cinnamon
  • 2 TSP baking powder
  • 1 TSP baking soda
  • pinch of kosher salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  2. In your stand mixer or just a large mixing bowl, add in all of your dry ingredients (flours, oats, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda). Stir to combine.

  3. Into the bowl, add all of your wet ingredients, (milk, oil, vanilla, bananas, and egg). Mix until combined and everything is moistened.

  4. Evenly distribute batter into a 12-tin muffin pan that’s been sprayed with cooking spray.

  5. Bake for 19 minutes.

  6. Let cool for about 10 minutes and then enjoy with butter!

As always with most of my muffins, I enjoy these split with a bit of butter! They also freeze very well (if you ever have any left over!). Let me know what you think of them!

I made banana muffins/bread a few weeks ago, then had overripe bananas again last week and felt muffined out, so I made banana pudding. It was way easier than I thought it would be (for some reason I thought pudding would be more complicated than it is). Just used the recipe in Bittman’s “How to Cook Everything”. Way better than boxed, not that much longer than the boxed that you cook, and way yummier. Just thought I’d share in case you were looking for something else to do with overripe bananas like I was. : )

I’ve never made pudding (I’m not a sweet fan generally) but I’m sure my family would love it! I just bought a TON of bananas during my weekly grocery shopping trip… now I’m just waiting for them to ripen lol.

These look delicious! Oddly enough, I am getting ready to bake banana coconut bread tonight! :)

I made these to add in as a special treat for BB’s lunch this week in mini-size and a few regular size for breakfast treats for the rest of us. They’re delicious. (I have to leave out the cinnamon so I can eat them, but they’re still just super yummy.) So thanks! I had been searching for a use-my-bananas and add in some oats type of recipe for us!
