So glad I deleted the other banana muffin recipe I posted. I tried going a completely different route tonight ... Oh yum. Here goes:Banana Oatmeal MuffinsPreheat oven to 325Combine in a medium bowl, then set aside:
3 C whole wheat flour
1 C oatmeal
1/3 C flaxseed meal
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp saltSmash to a slimy mess, then set aside:
2 C bananas (about 4 large over-ripe ones)Beat until you couldn't possibly beat it anymore:
1/2 C (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temp
1 C honey (or honey and maple syrup combination)Add bananas, beat some moreAdd:
4 eggs, beating between each eggAdd the dry stuff, alternately adding
1/2 C hot waterMix until well-combined.
Spoon into buttered muffin pans - if you fill them about 3/4 full, you'll get 24 muffins. Bake until tester comes out clean - about 20+ min.
After my first round, I think there's room for experimentation - maybe putting a few sprinkles of sugar (gasp!) on top, or adding some choc chips, nuts or cinnamon. But they're pretty darn good on their own, as well.
*I recommend halving the recipe, as they're much better right out of the oven. (A little chewy after overnighting in a container, although still yummy.) Hard to gobble up 24 muffins in one day.
