No Guilt Banana Nut Oatmeal Muffins

Submitted by: GINNY70

Introduction

This is my adaptation of a recipe I found here. I thought it warranted it's own recipe. Credit goes to JOJOMKE for the original Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as myself and my family. This is my adaptation of a recipe I found here. I thought it warranted it's own recipe.

    0.5 tsp Baking Soda
    1tsp Cinnamon, ground
    1 large Banana, fresh

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.
Mash the banana and add to the oat mixture along with the applesauce and egg beaters. Mix until combined.

In a separate bowl measure and whisk the dry ingredients together.

Do not over mix the batter or the muffins will be tough. Spoon muffin mixture into muffin pan.

    I made a few minor adjustments because I'm vegan but these are so good. Will definitely make them again. - 3/11/09

  • This is the second time I made this recipe. I substituted the skim milk with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. and I omitted the nuts because I didn't have any on hand. Before I put them in the oven, I sprinkled a little cinnamon on top of each muffin. My family loves these. - 10/6/13

  • WOW!Okay so i replaced the skim milk with soy milk, used evaporated cane juice (natural sugar) instead of sugar, DUMPED cinnamon, used 2 medium eggs instead of egg beaters, and topped each muffin with a different topping (raisins, chia seeds, walnuts, and roasted sunflower kernels)....I'M IMPRESSED! - 12/2/11

  • Best recipe I've come across by far. I always have trouble with muffins being too dense or dry (even powdery!) but not this one! Added some extra cinnamon due to comments that it was too mild in flavor. Really liked this recipe! Will make again! - 6/28/11

  • These were easy to make but was disappointed in that the muffins are very mild in flavor. My husband put it well when he said they was a hint of flavor but that it needs a kicker. I even tried doubling the banana and it wasn't much difference. Any suggestions? Vanilla? Buttermilk? - 5/1/10

  • These were easy to make but I thought lacked in flavor a bit. Since they are heavier than your average muffin they are good for breakfast. Added more banana to show the flavor. - 1/8/10

  • I make these all the time. They are very moist & delicious! The only thing I add is an extra banana because I like the extra chunks going through the muffins. Thanks for making one of my favorites healthier! - 10/20/09

  • Super moist and very delicious. I tried a different oatmeal muffin recipe before this that was way too dry and dense. Soaking the oats and the applesauce really made them moist. These were perfect. I used two beaten eggs instead of the egg beaters though and added a banana. - 4/30/09

  • This is a great low-fat, tasty muffin. Good to have on hand for a quick breakfast or snack after a workout. Or if you feel like you want a "treat" its a good choice. - 12/16/08
