Banana Oat Muffin

October 3, 2009

~ Mary ~


Aren’t these cute – all wrapped up and the only place to go is in my mouth! They look decadent don’t they?  I’m here to tell you it’s just a show!  These have virtually no fat and very low sugar and they’re PACKED with flavor.

Low fat + Low sugar = HIGH flavor!


It’s also time for Meeta’s Monthly Mingle.  This time it’s being hosted by My Diverse Kitchen and the theme is High Tea.  And since I’m a mid-west raised, corn-fed farm girl – the parameters are flexible to include what would you serve for a more elaborate afternoon get-together with tea or coffee.  I think these fit the bill and hope you’ll try them out.


Other muffins you might enjoy:

Blueberry Corn Muffin Jeweled Muffin


Banana Oat Muffins

3 Cups of batter – makes a dozen regular or 6 JUMBO

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Spray muffin tin

In wet bowl:

Mash 3-4 way over ripe Bananas

– make sure they’re beyond soft and are black and super mushy – if you can’t get to your over-ripe bananas – put them in the freezer until you can.


when done mashing add:

3/4 Cup Buttermilk

2 Eggs

2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil


In dry bowl combine;

1 Cup Quick Cooking Oats

1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour

can opt for some flax seed or bran too, just omit in flour or oats the amount you add.

1/3 Cup Brown Sugar or 1/2 Cup Splenda

1/2 tsp Salt

2 tsp Baking Soda

1 tsp Chinese 5 Spice

1 tsp Cardamom


Combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir to combine.

Fill muffin tins almost to top.

Optional to sprinkle nuts on top.

Bake until golden brown and springy about 20-25 minutes

      It’s just brown baker’s paper that’s been cut in a square and strategically folded. John picked them up somewhere in his travels.

    The spices look interesting. I made some blueberry muffins a while back with a lower-carb base but felt the “kick” wasn’t quite up to speed. Maybe I’ll have to try diversifying my spice rack! 😀

    those muffins look so good! I love the outer layer of brown parchment paper with the nuts on top. So decorative!

    bananas and oats in a muffin? I’m sold! I love the nutty topping too

    Low fat and low sugar sounds excellent. Those muffins look pretty and dressedup in their wrappers. They’re most definitely tea party style.
    Thanks for joining us for High Tea.

    Love how you used oats + 5 spice!

    I absolutely love the paper muffin cups they are in. Where did you get them? Obviously your muffins look amazing on their own, but those add such a special touch.

      brown parchment/bakers paper – John picked it up from a commercial account – not sure where – you might try a Sur la Table – I’ve seen some interesting baking cardboard shapes there.

    WOW! So glad I came across your blog. These muffins look delicious and they should be pretty healthy. I’m planning an afternoon bridal shower and I might add these to the menu. Thanks for sharing!

    Hey, I’d like to bake this muffins and I thinking about adding some nutella on top. Do you think, is it good idea? Or it is to heavy and muffins could not grow?

      Maybe try putting the nutella on after they finish baking.
