RECIPE: Banana Oat Walnut Muffins -- Low Fat

Hi all --

I'm so excited, as I made up a muffin recipe (modifying a different carrot muffin recipe I had) and they turned out so well -- really nice texture and flavor, not too sweet, with good banana flavor!

Banana Oat Walnut Muffins (makes 12)

3/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup mashed ripe banana (about two large bananas)
1 egg
2 Tbs canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup quick oats
1&1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 Tbs chopped toasted walnuts
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375. Mix first six ingredients (buttermilk through sugar) together in a large bowl. Mix all other dry ingredients together in a small bowl, then add to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Portion into muffin cups (I used muffin cup liners, otherwise grease the pan) so that cups are about 3/4 full... Bake 18-20 minutes, until browned on top and and a toothpick stuck in one comes out clean!

Let me know how you like them!

I made these yesterday and they were very good.......I had already added the nuts before I saw that word "toasted" so they probably would have been even better if I had done that but.........they were nicely moist and a good banana flavor.

Oh good! I'm so glad you liked them Roselin!

I made your muffin recipe this morning, and are they ever good!! I didn't have any walnuts so I substituted some roasted almonds that I had in the freezer - that is the only change I made. Very delicious....!

Thank you for sharing - I am definitely keeping that one. :)

I tried this recipe tonight, but I used only 1Tbsp oil and 1/4 cup sugar and also, I used 2% milk (did not have buttermilk) and it came out very well! Yum!

RE: RECIPE: Banana Oat Walnut Muffins -- Low Fat

I have some overripe bananas that I have to use up so I am going to try these!

Thanks, Emily!
