Recipe: Low Sugar Banana Oatmeal Muffins


 

bananamuffins

This recipe was adapted from Cookie & Kate’s Healthy Banana Muffins recipe. While her muffins are “naturally sweetened” with maple syrup, I opted to forego the sweetener altogether and loved the results! Adding a fourth ripe banana provided just enough sweetness for these low sugar banana oat muffins, and a dollop of peanut butter on top made them ultra-filling! My daughter and I enjoyed these for breakfast all week long!

Ingredients
  1. ⅓ Cup Coconut Oil, melted
  2. 2 Eggs, preferably at room temperature
  3. 4 Ripe Bananas, mashed
  4. ¼ Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  5. 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  6. 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  7. ½ Tsp Salt
  8. ½ Tsp Cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling on top
  9. 1¾ Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  10. ⅓ Cup Old-fashioned Oats, plus more for sprinkling on top
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius). Line your muffin pan with cupcake liners or grease thoroughly.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the coconut oil and eggs together with a whisk. Mix in the mashed bananas and milk, followed by the baking soda, vanilla extract, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Add the flour and oats to the bowl and mix with a large spoon, just until combined. If you’d like to add any additional mix-ins, like nuts, chocolate or dried fruit, fold them in now.
  4. Divide the batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups, filling each cup about two-thirds full. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with a small amount of oats (about 1 tablespoon), followed by a touch of cinnamon (about 1/2 teaspoon). Bake muffins for 23 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
  5. Place the muffin tin on a cooling rack to cool.
