- 3/4 cup whole wheat
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup mashed bananas, usually 3 bananas
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 35mins
Combine all the dry ingredients together, (no need to sift), then add the eggs, mashed banana, oil and nuts.
Mix together until just combined - do not over stir.
Spoon the mixture into a greased 12 cup muffin tray.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked.
**If you would like to use even less oats, you can use 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup rolled oats or oatmeal and 1/4 cup oat bran.
**For a wheat-free muffin, leave out the whole wheat flour and process 1 1/4 cup oats to form fine crumbs, then add 1/2 cup oat bran, then continue to follow the banana oatmeal muffin recipe as usual.
