Banana oat muffins recipe – These banana Oat muffins are one of the best I have ever tried so far. They are so delicious and moist with a hint of cinnamon. They make a good filling breakfast with a cup of milk. These freeze well and can be a good stand by when you run out of time to prepare breakfast.
Banana oat muffins turn out great, slightly chewy and not very dense. I have used choco chips. You can replace them with chopped chocolate, raisins or walnuts.
Oats: You can use rolled oats or quick cook oats in the recipe.
Sweetener: I have used grated palm jaggery here. You can use regular sugar, jaggery or brown sugar.
Bananas: Please use ripe bananas. The more ripe the better the flavor.
Spice powder: We love the cinnamon flavor so I have the same. You can also skip it or use a mix of nutmeg & cinnamon.
I have used choco chips but you can also add the same amount of chopped nuts and raisins.
