These muffins are a delicious take on banana bread without too much sugar. Just the right amount of sweet from the honey and bananas (make sure they are really ripe since they are sweeter that way).
In case you don't have oat bran on hand you can use regular rolled oats and put them in the food processor and process until very fine and make sure to measure after they are processed, not before.
I have a recipe I make for banana bread that has coconut, chocolate chips and pecans and it is super yummy. Next time I make these, I'm definitely going to add some coconut and pecans and see how it turns out.
Banana Oat muffins
1.5 cups oat bran
1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 cup mashed ripe banana
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or raisins
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray the bottom of either your muffin pan or paper liners. Makes 12 muffins. In a bowl combine dry ingredients and make a well in the center and add the egg, banana, milk, honey and oil. Stir just until moistened (should be lumpy).
Fold in the chocolate chips or raisins. Spoon into the muffin cups. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden and a toothpick comes out clean. Eat a warm one right out of the oven....you won't regret it!
