Our family is crazy about bananas. Our fruit bowl is usually overflowing with them! We eat them as a snack, in pancakes, in sandwiches, in cereal, put them in our smoothies, use them to make nice cream…you get the picture. We buy several bunches of bananas each time we go to the grocery store, but I’m really particular about my bananas. I will dig through the boxes under the banana table looking for the greenest bunch of bananas that can be found. I know, I’m a crazy woman!
But you see, I just can’t eat bananas past the point of greenish-yellow. Maaaaybe if it has turned yellow with streaks of green, but it CANNOT have any spots on it whatsoever! No, once they’ve gained spots they’re shunned by the kids and I, aka the banana snobs, and no longer suitable for regular consumption. They’re automatically “reduced” to cooking, baking, slash smoothie making bananas, which is totally fine by me!
It gives me the perfect excuse to make yummy treats like this! These bananas muffins are a family favorite. I love that they are made with only oats and other wholesome ingredients. They also don’t have that much added sweetener in them (less than a tablespoon of coconut sugar per muffin!) They make a great snack or breakfast on the go—literally like oatmeal in a cup! (A muffin cup, that is) 😉
I hope you’re able to give these a try! If you do, please let me know how you like them in the comments below..I always appreciate your feedback!
