Healthy Oatmeal Banana Muffins With Apple And Raisins

Last weekend I had a few bananas that needed to be baked into something. Since I had just made a batch of banana bread with matcha green tea powder, I decided to experiment with a new recipe based on baked oatmeal banana muffins. I ended up with these healthy oatmeal banana apple raisin muffins, and decided that they were worth sharing.

Oatmeal Banana Muffins
What makes these muffins healthy? They are made with whole ingredients, no sugar, and no fat other than what is in the eggs. Just as important, they are delicious! 

Ingredients

  • 3 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Overripe Bananas

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare muffin tin with muffin papers and/or cooking spray.

Mix wet ingredients (bananas through vanilla) in a large mixing bowl until well-blended. Add spices (cinnamon through baking powder) and mix well. Blend in oats, then apple, then raisins. (Batter will be very wet.) Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling all the way.

Baked Oatmeal Muffins

Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes, until muffins are lightly golden and well set. Remove from muffin tin to baking rack to cool.

 What is your favorite way to use overripe bananas?
