Banana Oatmeal Muffins





Got an itch to bake the other night, and I had - as always - a bunch of bananas going brown on the counter. I wanted something hearty and not overly sweet or rich, and these yummy muffins fit the bill perfectly. They freeze well and heat in the microwave in mere seconds.

Banana Oatmeal Muffins
12 medium sized muffins

375 ml all-purpose flour
250 ml rolled oats
100 ml sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
170 ml milk
80 ml vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
250 ml mashed bananas (I used two and a half)
100 ml walnuts, roughly chopped (optional, of course)

Start by mixing the dry ingredients - flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt - in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk the egg. Add milk oil and vanilla, and finally the bananas. Stir in the dry ingredients, and if you want to, walnuts.

Dollop into muffin cases, and bake for about 15 minutes at 200°C. (The time will depend on your oven - a toothpick should come out clean when they're done.)
